Hope Heals (MFM) by Tymber Dalton (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
Categories: Contemporary, Menage a Trois/Quatre

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

Enjoyable story, complete with lots of loving family members and crazy farm animals. However, this was my 10th or so Tymber Dalton book and while none have been tame with the language, this book made me cringe all over the place, to the point of distracting from the story, with the ridiculous amount of cursing (seriously, stop using the word asshat). The heroine is _constantly_ cursing/using derogatory names and it makes her seem trashy, uneducated, and immature, not edgy or cool. She goes on about how her in-laws think she's white trash. By the end of the novel I do too. There are plenty of situations in the novel where expletives ARE warranted and being an adult novel, I don't expect tame language, I'm ok with that, but I feel this novel suffers from overuse of expletives and it makes the story less enjoyable to me. For example, the whole goat on the roof thing...she immediately starts cursing up a storm at the goat when she notices her on the roof. Why? I would have been stupefied or sarcastic, not angry at the situation. The scene lost its humor because the language reflected out-of-proportion-to-the-situation anger and intensity, in my opinion. After the ladder incident, then yeah, be angry and drop the f bomb and more. Please realize Tymber that you are a talented writer and you do not need to make your writing edgier with over-the-top foul language. Heroines should always be respectable people, at least outside the bedroom!
