    After 25%, I d already gotten tired of Geoffrey s dithering blue balls towards Kendra and the recurrent plot device of Geoffrey s ebil brother Reynard cornering Kendra, and Geoffrey saving her butt, only to go into another cycle of pining lust between our couple, followed by Kendra in peril and then followed by Geoffrey to the rescue.The sad thing is I read this as a teen I remember nothing about it beyond the cover, but I assume I enjoyed it But I loved all kinds of mediocre crap as a teenage After 25%, I d already gotten tired of Geoffrey s dithering blue balls towards Kendra and the recurrent plot device of Geoffrey s ebil brother Reynard cornering Kendra, and Geoffrey saving her butt, only to go into another cycle of pining lust between our couple, followed by Kendra in peril and then followed by Geoffrey to the rescue.The sad thing is I read this as a teen I remember nothing about it beyond the cover, but I assume I enjoyed it But I loved all kinds of mediocre crap as a teenager See also Johanna Lindsey PAnd the only way I can describe the writing is beige Excruciatingly blah The other Kramer I read was also pretty blah, and now I m wondering if it s a THING A TBR purge might be in order
