Ebook sales continue to fall as younger generations drive appetite for print. So, being treated like a blow-up doll or a property, basically, is a show of love?

Just what the hell. At this point, I started to really wonder what the author was thinking. All right, so after having sex with no lube or preparation btw, and Jude loved it because it only hurt for a second.

She lives in a medieval whatever country and she's never seen the color brown? That's never explained, but throughout their journey in the medieval side of the 'veil' everyone who meets Jude reacts like that to his eyes.

The other Guardians need to have a talk immediately, so Jude is sent away to Eoin's rooms. Eoin didn't bother to think whether or not Jude was hungry or needed anything, it was just like, "see you later", only in his medieval talk.

But Jude doesn't care much that he's in a strange place and there's no explanations, he's too busy thinking the following, "He could depend on Eoin. Eoin would be his rock, and that certainty was filling him with thoughts that were new and disturbing as well as warm and solid.

Jude, who had never wanted a home, suddenly wanted one desperately. He could see himself cooking for the man, ironing his shirts, downloading vitamins, and going grocery shopping. He's a man, for fuck's sake.

Or, at least, it's what he was supposed to be. The story continues, there's a show of Jude's foolish heroics apparently he's fearless to the point of sheer idiocy, when they are chased through a forest at night and the only way to escape their pursuers is to jump into a roaring waterfall, Jude grabs the baroness and is like, "let's jump, it's cool I'm a trained lifeguard". Then he saves her, and even one of their pursuers. Then Jude goes back through the veil, while Eoin stays to fight a war promising he'll be back.

Jude goes back to work, where everyone loves him, his ex tries to win him back, and the man his ex cheated on him with is desperate for a date with Jude, as well.

I don't think there was a single person who did not love Jude in this book. Everyone loves Jude, he charms people left and right at the drop of a hat, and halfway through the book I was thinking, "This should've been titled Everyone Loves Jude, or Jude the Fair, or something.

His perfect looks smooth skin, full lips, luscious locks etc are described in full detail several times. Okay, we get it, he's beautiful and perfect.

In fact, there seemed to be no flaw in Jude. He's amazing, unforgettable, irreplaceable, etc. He gets several swift promotions at work, because he's just that good, okay?

Eoin comes back, offers little explanation to the events that took place in his six months absence, but what does Jude care when now they can have a sex marathon? Fast forward some months, Eoin seamlessly transfered into an entirely new and different world of modern day Chicago, his business is booming, everyone thinks he's amazing, he's doing extraordinarily well, Jude's family loves him, and bla bla you get the idea, he's now also perfect.

There wasn't a single likable character in the book.
