I have two major problems with this story. The first is our main character. She is a Hoe. Plain and simple, she is a dumb 420 friendly, let me take it doggy style hoe. She is all like hmm I wonder why I can't get a guy, let me place an add and tell guys how I'll take it bent over, I think when that doesn't work I will smoke a bowl of some great Californian Herb. She made me want to scream, hmm you wonder what your problem is, close your legs for 10 seconds and try to let a guy respect you before you spread eagle.
My second huge problem with this is the cliffhanger, normally when authors do this, I feel like we get somewhere in the story but for me we got nowhere. The character just kept making mistakes over and over again. I don't feel like there was any growth. Besides the main character taking it all kinds of ways and still not knowing which way she wants to take it this went no where for me. I was actually kind of mad when this book ended, I felt like i just gave my time and read this for it to be stagnant.
Love In All The Wrong Places, I wonder what was meant by the title, perhaps, she is looking for love in the wrong places or whoring it up in the wrong places. I'm not really sure.
What I can be most certain about is the frustration I felt when this ended.
I tried, but I didn't find anything special or unique about her. Annie was sweet and giving, almost too giving to a fault. To me, she came off as rather desperate. I couldn't connect with her in any way. And the men, well, they marched in and out of her life rather quickly. And well, hey, she gave it up rather quickly if you know what I mean.
I wasn't a fan of the writing style either. It was mostly narrative. It presented as a story in almost textbook-like fashion that I would later be quizzed on to test my comprehension. When I think about many of the other books I've read recently, the writing just couldn't compare. I wasn't moved by the story, couldn't connect with the characters, and honestly, I couldn't wait to be finished so I could move on. If you're looking for a book to read about a young woman's sexual escapades, then it might work for you. It didn't work for me.
Audrey Harte hit this one out of the park! Written like she's been doing this for years, Audrey transported me to the valley, where Annie's story unfolds. Being able to visualize Santa Monica Pier and hear the music in Vanguard, I got sucked into the reality of being Annie's constant shadow. Online dating can be a good thing or a bad thing and I am so happy that someone has written about it and made it entertaining.
Looking in All the Wrong Places is a reality in it's own and I was left hanging to see what happens next to Annie. So I was ecstatic when I saw that there will be a book 2 released later this year.
After several failed relationships, Annie decides to place an ad on Craigslist in hopes of finding Mr. Right. I do not want to spoil the story by saying who she meets, what happens, if she finds love, etc. because that's basically what the novel is about. But if I were to choose a song to best describe Annie and the whole online dating situation, I would pick.... Clumsy by Fergie.
I wanted to say that I didn't like Annie overall when I was done reading. Thoughts going through my head after finishing included: Who does that with a guy she just met online? Is she really going to take him back? And seriously, why did she forgive him? But honestly, I couldn't. I feel that she is realistic as anyone in everyday life. She is young. She is looking for a good time. She wants to be loved, and so she takes action herself in hopes of finding the one. Although she doesn't make the wisest decisions, I have to forgive her. After all, at some point in life we all do stupid things for the sake of love, right? So yeah... I like Annie! It was a delight watching her live, love, and learn.
Overall, I definitely would recommend this book to those looking for a nice short read. This is Aubrey Harte's debut novel, and I must say I am highly impressed. The story doesn't have the drama, angst, or smut that I usually crave for. And there were some parts in the novel that I thought were dull. But nonetheless, I enjoyed it. It was entertaining enough to make me not let go of my Kindle. I look forward to reading Ms. Harte's All The Right Things as well as all her future work.
