Book Review- The Donor

the donor

“Casey Williams and her family are poor. Her parents work non-stop and so does she, just so they can keep the trailer roof from leaking.

They’re getting by fine enough when the headaches start. Then there’s the nosebleeds. And the inevitable doctor’s bills.

Fortunately for Casey, there’s an exclusive, quick, and almost easy way to pay it all back before her parents even have to know.

All she has to do is give a man she’s never met whatever he wants from her body.
Inside or out.”

Sounds intriguing. Let me start by saying that this book did not go where I thought that it would. In my mind it was pretty straight forward. I thought that it was going to be about an overly handsome strong male character, and a weak female role. And he was going to be paying for: dates, championship and sex.  Then she would fall in the love with the overbearing and scarred male persona. Typical typical

Nope, I was off. That is most certainly not where this book was headed, and did not play out how I thought that it would. There is a great, deeper storyline and where it goes is not foreseen. That being said I really wanted to love this book, but that is not the case. While I did not, not like it; I also didn’t love it.

For me the writing was a bit choppy. There are lots of flash back, on both characters. It at times makes it hard to follow the current story line, or keep up with who’s flashback we are in. Along those lines, the chapters are incredibly short; and each starting with a flash back. I would have liked to see more development of the storyline. It almost read as if the author could not go over a word count.

Would I read it again? Probably not. Would I recommend it for others? If they had say an airplane ride, or long rode trip, then it might be good for that. I was able to read the whole book on my flight (about 2 hours).  Neither good nor bad.

What about you guys, what do you do when you read something that is not bad but not great either? Do you still recommend it out? I am torn here.
