Silver Scars by Posy Roberts


I decided to start my reading year with an M/M romance, because I have a soft spot for them and I haven't read one in a while. And, lucky me, picked one that I completely disliked.

In a non-spoilery way, this was what I hate about M/M romances and any kind of romance books in general: insta-love or insta/liking (and people getting gorrillas in their stomach after they just saw 'the one' or the man/woman they suddenly want to sleep with or have a relationship), plain and uni-dimensional characters, whose names I already forgot, no emotions or feelings. I didn't get the feeling that these men where attracted to each other and in my opinion they just wanted to fuck each other just because they were both scared physically and mentally, due to an accident, and no one else was there to fill the spot.

SpoilerPlus let's be honest, who gets a job today and meets his/her colleagues and sees a cute one, and the second or third day, they already have dinner, swim almost naked and have sex?
Or is just my mind who can't comprehend that?

I have nothing against sex and people can do it even they just have met, but I have to feel that connection, attraction or how you wanna call it. I wanted to care for these characters who are not physically perfect and so on, and I wanted them to be happy, but I couldn't care less. YES, I would've enjoyed the book if the characters would've beeen more fleshed out and individualized, if the plot would've been more engaging, as cliche as it was, if I would've felt something about something. I would've have accepted the insta feelings and sex flaming and flambating desire that happen so fast and the sex scenes that seemed to have been written by a kid, because they felt plain, boring and like a diagram more or less.

Maybe I'm too picky, maybe I'm bad and I'm starting the year with a one star review and a negative opinion, but, honestly, I have read fan-fics better than this one and I love fan fics and out there are some amazing ones! This was awful and I can't freaking understand how it has so many good reviews. Sorry if you liked it or if it's your favourite but for me... God, hopefully I'll even forget that this was on my TBR.
