I had an inkling shortly before I picked up 99 Percent Mine that I wouldn't like the book. You see, I really loved The Hating Game, but I recently picked it up again and disliked it for some reason. I couldn't tell if it was my mood or if the book was not that well-written.

I should have stuck with my guts because 99 Percent Mine was a mess. The heroine was one of the strangest characters that I have ever come across. Her inner thoughts and dialogues were bordering on creepy. I imagine that being inside Darcy's head is close to being inside a serial killer's mind. She was oddly possessive of the love interest, Tom, and it made me so uncomfortable. It almost seemed like she didn't view him as an actual person, but as something that she needed to acquire. Her desperation for him reeked in her every thought and nothing about that was endearing.

Speaking of Tom, I didn't quite know what to make of him either. He seemed like an odd pick for Darcy. Honestly, he was so flat and passive. Stale peanuts have more personality than that ... I didn't get the dynamic between the two at all. The chemistry was non-existent, they had so many communication issues, and ultimately, they were not a couple that made sense at all to me.

I'm trying to remember why I even continued on with the book, but I don't know. Perhaps I kept hoping it would get better? Also, what on earth was the story with the grandmother's cottage and the twin brother? What a headache! Anyways, I don't often "don't recommend" books, even those that I don't like, but this book is not worth your time and money. There are far more talented romance authors out there.

What is one book you were looking forward to reading that disappointed you?
