The Training Wheels Are Off

I just finished Sweetheart by Chelsea Cain.


Wowee, wow, wow.

Since this book doesn't come out until September, it seems sort of wrong to write a full-fledged review for it - mainly because I don't want to inadvertently slip a spoiler. But I will say this - for those of you who read Heartsick, if you thought Archie Sheridan was eff-ed up in that story? Oh man - the training wheels are off in Sweetheart. I can't tell you how many moments there were in this book where I was saying to myself, "OMG he did not just say/think/do that?!"

I loved Heartsick, but Sweetheart? Arguably the best suspense novel I have ever read. Ever. And keep in mind I was reading suspense when y'all were sneaking your mama's Kathleen Woodiwiss novels. Just saying.

Heartsick fans - preorder it now. Seriously. Preorder. It. Now.


Wowee, wow, wow.

I haven't even had a chance to read Heartsick. My fiance hasn't finished reading it and if he doesn't finish soon, I'm going to steal it since he's being so slow.

Ughh... I am so angry at you right now and disappointed!!! Torturing me like that... I am DYING to read this book!

Don't hold back, Wendy, tell us how you really feel about it.

I guess it's time to dust off the credit card and get ordering.

That's cold. Just plain mean.

It's rare that I pre-order anything from BN or Amazon, but I'm doing just that tonight. Demnit.

Is it wrong to say that at the end of Heartsick I was disappointed that Archie didn't completely surrender himself to Gretchen? Such was her spellbinding power and heartlessness.

Here's hoping he sees the error of his ways in this next book.

(And who am I kidding? Of course it's wrong. Archie, give it up. Worship Gretchen as you are meant to!)
