Review: Your Mouth Drives Me Crazy by HelenKay Dimon

mouthFrom the back of the book:

Never Let Me Go

Annie Parks came to Hawaii to settle a score, not spend time handcuffed to a sexy stranger’s bed – even if said stranger saved her from drowning after she was pitched overboard by some goons. Looking at six feet of hard, Hawaiian muscle and gorgeous cool that’s making forgotten parts of her say, “Aloha!,” Annie needs to stay focused. But a side dish of Kane Travers is awfully tempting.

Kauai Police Chief Kane Travers is not a vacation kind of guy. So it figures that when Internal Affairs suspended him, he’d end up rescuing a sarcastic, dishonest, extremely hot redhead who is clearly hiding something. Kane’s got half a mind to give Miss Whoever She Is something she’ll never forget, even if his cop senses tell him she needs his protection. But how can he get her to tell him anything when his mouth won’t stop covering hers?

I really wanted to like this book, but it fell flat for me. I couldn’t empathize with the characters, especially Annie. There was so much that we weren’t told in the beginning that would have helped build up some sympathy for what she was trying to achieve in Hawaii. The same goes for Kane. The very beginning of the book he is complaining about a forced vacation, but it is forever before the reader finds out why. The ending felt rushed once the reader was aware of what was going on in the story. I also felt the relationship aspect of the book wasn’t quite right. Two people who are so unhappy with what is going on in their lives, and that have the determination for revenge like Annie does, wouldn’t drop everything for a quick (or not so quick) tumble.I thought the characters and circumstances completely unrealistic.

the book girl gives YOUR MOUTH DRIVES ME CRAZY 3/5!
