Book Review: “Georgia on My Mind” by Force

“Georgia on My Mind” by Marie Force was published in 2011 by HTJB, Inc. The novel is a contemporary romance. It runs about 352 pages. When I got the book it was a free download. I am not being paid for my review.

Synopsis (my summary):

The novel covers the romantic stories of three couples. Three woman who are roommates hook up with three brothers.  There is instant attraction between all of them.

Rating Legend: 1-Didn’t like it (complete fail) 2-It was alright (below average), 3-I liked it (average), 4-It was pretty good/well done (above average), 5-It was excellent (excellent.)

Ratings (1-5 scale):

  • Overall: 2
  • Heroine: 2
  • Hero: 2

Review:

It is slightly different than a typical romance in that each couple not only falls in love at first sight; they fall into bed shortly there after. Most romance novels I have read a bit more of a relationship is established before they have sex. All issues that the couples have are resolved quickly by the end for the happily ever after.

The novel attempts to give each couple equal page time. It moves back and forth between each couple, and each person. So there are 6 main points of view. It becomes a bit to keep track of.

Some of the minor characters provided comedy to the story.

Some items:

  • Too many characters
  • Too many plot points involving each character and each couple. It caused the book to seem rushed through each of the couples stories, and didn’t give real depth.
  • The author could have done some more research to avoid some mistakes. For example Styrofoam is generally not recyclable when clean, and it certainly isn’t when soiled with food.
  • There were too many characters floating around.
  • There were a few point of view issues.

Overall I thought this novel could have been broken into three separate ones.
