When a romance novel includes the line “I’ve been monogamous for a week,” you know you probably will not get any actual romance from that book. Yet, amazingly enough, this book is categorized as a romantic comedy.
The story is about a guy named Tyler who is in the Navy after four arrests. From the very beginning, everything out of his mouth is a lie. Heck, he even lied about his arrests to get into the Navy – saying he only had two instead of the four he really had. To cover up having a hangover, he lies about his mother having cancer. To cover up a drunken brawl with some other sailors, he lies about having a gay brother who got killed.
Throughout the entire book, he cheats on his girlfriend. He lies to her and everyone else about pretty much everything you can think of. He’s very casual about it too. I mean, when I say this guy lies, I’m not kidding when I say he probably tells 40 lies during the span of the book … maybe more. Some are just tiny lies like why he was late to work. But others are far, far more serious.
Let’s just say Tyler is a very unlikable character. The book is heavy on vulgarity and profanity. He drinks too much, he’s major homophobic, and he cheats and cheats and cheats on a girl he claims to love. He’s just a really horrible person.
There is absolutely nothing tolerable about this guy.
A good romance novel typically includes passion and heat between two people. This book wasn’t anything like that. This book was about some jerk who treats women horribly.
