WIR | Dark Lover (part 3)

January 27, 2014 While I'm Reading (WIR) 4

Every Thursday I bring you a chance to relive a favorite book with quick glimpses at my reactions and predictions While I’m Reading (WIR). 

I listened to Dark Lover, so instead of page numbers for my reactions I have the time (as of the end of the quote). Within each sound clip/spoiler are the quotes that resulted in the reactions below it. My reactions are copied from some of my bookmarks while reading (not all of them, because I go a little overboard). So if you just want reactions, don’t open the sound clips/spoilers. But if you’ve read it and want to know exactly what part am I at, listen to them.

(03:58:21) She’s finally seeing his true colors. Bet she still acts dumb…

(04:13:39) Geez! Glad you decided on the gentle route!

End of Chapter 15 thoughts: The last scene really wasn’t what I expected, but mostly in a good way. Loved the confrontation between Wrath and Hard Ass, but once again I’m frustrated with Beth. Though I have to admit, if I’m supposed to buy the idea that she’s somehow different from humans, I’m sold. Not a single reaction she has seems ‘right’. Anxious to see what’s coming next.

(04:36:09) So it’s not all of them that are practically blind? Just Wrath? Hmmm – did I miss the explanation for that or is it still to come? May have been when I got bored in that flashback to his change…

(04:4:31) This chick is dumb. Sorry. But did she really just go into a dark, secret, nearly impossible to find room with a man she believes is a drug dealer, mafia lord, killer? Dumb!

(05:19:44) Ok I’m seriously amazed at his control. Both that he has it and is EVEN TRYING to have it. Maybe not such an ass.

(05:21:11) She seems that way, because she IS dangerously naive. And that’s the nicest way of saying TSTL (too stupid to live!)

(05:30:00) Yikes! That would be seriously overwhelming. And I love the Butler. Is he human? because he can go out, but her father couldn’t…. I wish the mythology were more clearly explained.

(05:31:58) Aww! I like him and she just seriously made his day 🙂

(05:35:58) poor thing! All she’ll see when she reads his mind is Beth and it will break her little heart. Wrath is such an ass!

(05:59:49) Oh… never mind Wrath. You’re not an ass (this time). But your system sucks! If you’re royalty or whatever, can’t you change things?

(06:29:40) Never mind Wrath, you ARE an Ass. Geez! He loves her like you SHOULD have loved Marissa. Tor is good. You are not.

 End of Chapter 24 thoughts: I’m still really frustrated with Beth. She just doesn’t do anything that seems truly smart or even just a natural reaction. I get that she’s acting that way because she feels some sort of ‘natural’ pull towards Wrath, but it still frustrates me. Wrath is see-sawing for me. There’s moments that I really think I could like him and then others where he’s just such an ass, I want to reach into the book and slap him. And my heart just breaks for Marissa, but I kind of feel like the problem is as much their society as it is Wrath being an ass. I still really like Butch and feel terribly sorry for him – because of his sister and because of what just happened with Beth. I’m excited for what’s to come, I think things are about to get SERIOUSLY good!

Have your read Dark Lover
