Recent Comments "The Girlfriend"

I've been writing this review in my head pretty much since I started reading the book itself. I really enjoyed "The Boss" and quite enjoy Abigail Barnette/Jenny Trout (especially on Twitter) and I had high expectations for "The Girlfriend". I was sadly disappointed."The Boss" ends with the cliffhanger that Sophie is pregnant, and "The Girlfriend" picks up from there. I pretty much guessed how that plot was going to be resolved by the blurb for this book, and I was right. Though I have no problem [...]

An erotic romance is not supposed to make you want to throw up. This one does. More than once. (view spoiler)[ OK, is BDSM cancer a thing now? Haven't we suffered enough, universe?For future reference, dear writers of the world: Things I definitely do not want to encounter in an erotic romance:- MCs suffering from a fatal disease.- abortion- asshole protagonist who happens to be in a monogamous relationship fucking strangers in front of her dying bfThe main tragedy of The Girlfriend is that Abig [...]

No.After reading The Boss, I was really excited to continue and read The Girlfriend. However, this book contained more off putting elements that an erotic romance should contain. This book felt like a cross between FSoG and a very bad edition of a Nicholas Sparks novel. If I wanted to read about an MC dying of cancer, I would have chosen Nicholas Sparks. And I hate Nicholas Sparks.With that being said, The Girlfriend suffers from its own disease of the infamous 'second book syndrome'. Quite fran [...]

Really strong 4.5 star read!This book really hit it's stride in book two. It covered so many topics and generated so many visceral reactions, I am still thinking about it days after completing it. It covers unplanned pregnancies, illness, BDSM, other sexual partners, interfering exes, etc. The writing was so well done and it was such an emotional book for me. The relationship between Neil and Sophie became a quite beautiful thing transcending age stereotypes and forcing me to look beyond the obv [...]

I haven't slept all night just to read this book.Also, I cried my eyes out: I'm starting book 3 now and I still haven't slept.

well this series is just gettin' hotter and hotter!!but the way there relationship is just goals! its so beautiful

I'm shocked by the series and the turn the book took. Shocked in good way. This is much more than an erotic book, or series. It's the journey of Sophie (and Neil), a real journey that many people make every day. Admittedly most don't have a billionaire partners but just the same it was a real read and I very much enjoyed it.

DNFDon't get me wrong, I'm not against abortion or anything, but if she didn't want to ever get pregnant why not do something about it? When she told him she was pregnant and would undergo abortion, I thought he's gonna react negatively but he didn't, like he doesn't care at all. Like, okay you want abortion? you got it, i'll pay for it. I didn't have the heart to finish the novel, I didn't like the 1st book and after the abortion thing, I kind of hate this now. It's just really crazy! They're i [...]

Well written, emotional steamy read. I felt both Neil's pain, heartache and frustration and the loneliness/dread felt by Sophie. Apprehension to finish the book as I could tell which way it would evolve. The dominant aggressive side of Neil did scare me and at times made me uncomfortable reading it but necessary for the story. Recommended read.

After enjoyingthe Boss by Abigail Barnette so much, this book fell dramatically flat for me.I already suspected a drama-rama when I read the end of the Boss. What I didn't expect was having to go through chemo-therapy for most part of the story. This was nowhere an enjoyable read. Don't get me wrong, I lost all my grandparents to cancer, this is a absolutely serious topic, and that's why it doesn't belong in a book that is supposed to be a joy ride. Screw reality. The fun parts were interesting, [...]

I enjoyed it. Till the very end, I held my breath about what is going to happen. It was deep, raw painful to see the fight for live, and other things that accompany that. I really loved that Sophie was very strong for Neill. Can't wait to read next installment.

Please note: This review contains spoilers for readers who have not read the first installment in The Boss series: #1-The BossThe Girlfriend is the second installment in Abigail Barnette's The Boss series. Ms. Barnette has developed these amazing characters that I am 100% invested in. In The Girlfriend, Neil and Sophie's relationship is put to the test many times and after reading how committed they actually are to each other, I am 100% invested in their relationship as well. Their relationship [...]

Potpuno sam oduševljena ovim knjigama i puna emocija.Kao prvo, ja čitam samo funny i BDSM eroticaostalo me zapravo ne zanima osim po jakoj preporuci osoba koje su se ustaničile in my book kao osobe čije smjernice obavezno pratim. Posebno izbjegavam mrljave drame i knjige koje me tjeraju da cmoljim.avak netočnog navoda - zapravo ne cmoljim ali tu i tamo me zna nešto dirnuti. Ali zapravo da, izbjegavam patnju, jad, čemer i bol ( osim ako nije pleasure/pain kind of a thing).Stoga ovo sam po [...]

I loved this. I don't know why. Not sure what to say about this. I delayed reading this even though I had bought the eBook maybe two years ago. Having read reviews about Neil's cancer, I was afraid to start this. I didn't want to be sad and depressed. I cry so easily that I didn't want to risk being sad and miserable going into a book that featured cancer and an abortion. But man oh man! What a story! Sure, there was lots of romance, BDSM, and kinkiness. But the cancer part? Wow. Wow. Wow. So re [...]

This book picks up where THE BOSS book 1 left off, which ended with cliffhanger over whether (view spoiler)[ Sophie would have an abortion, and what sent Neil into the hospital I was upset that Sophie did indeed have an abortion. I felt that her decision was selfish, especially considering that she later admitted that she knew Neil wanted to keep the baby. I will give her credit for sticking with Neil through is devastating diagnosis of Cancer. She held his hand through out it all, and never wav [...]

Interesting stretch of the genre: A rich couple who like kinky sex have to squeeze it in between chemo sessions to treat his leukemia. Unlike the first book in The Boss series, this one took itself very seriously; even in the midst of her (first-person POV) passion during sex play, she worries about her boyfriend's mortality. I thought the medical scenes, especially, were well handled, both at the beginning for Sophie and during the treatments for Neil. The couple has totally understandable ups [...]

I am really, really sorry if you liked the first book in this series, The Boss, because you thought it was The Devil Wears Prada mixed with a little light BDSM and a smattering of drama. Because if that's you, I doubt you will even get through the first 10% of this book. S**t got real at the end of The Boss, and The Girlfriend does not let up. At. All. If you aren't capable of reading about the dreaded A-word without condemning a woman forever for doing it (and no, I'm not talking about anal), t [...]

I wasn't sure how to rate The Girlfriend. I'm not sure how it made me feel. Although it was really good, there was just something off about this book.I loved most of it. The sad and dark parts as well as the happy ones but I didn't enjoy the sex scenes. Most were too much for me and not enjoyable at all considering the situation Neil was in. It was just so dark that I was only worried about that and I couldn't enjoy anything else. The three way or the part where Neil let Sophie get off with some [...]

I rated the first book 3 stars (but probably really a 3.5) - whereas this book would actually be a 2.5 star (if we had a half star rating). When I get time I'll have to do a full review on this book. The actual characters I liked, and then I was digging how the story played out (for the most part). BUT then as it progressed further, well yeah, I'm going to have to ponder what I want to say. I felt that while the first book was an excellent bird flip to 50 SOG in every aspect, this book was dippi [...]

DNFHonestly, I feel as though I was mislead. The first book I would have given a four to because the writing was great. The story was interesting, even though I'm not usually a fan of a women dating a man old enough to be her father. But, I was on board all the way until about 9% into The Girlfriend. I just could not wrap my mind around the way the hero and heroine handled an extremely sensitive, political, religious, all of the above, subject. For two adults at 24 and 48 I find the decision the [...]

Sometimes in this book it's really good and HOT, but unfortunately it's almost all the time VERY VERY boring, predictable and lacks in drama and some kondom action I could almost not finish this book because it was really boring. I was really disappointed because the first book in this serie was a lot better. I can only give this book ⭐️ star.

Felizmente tinha este segundo volume para iniciar logo assim que terminei o 1º. o primeiro termina de uma forma que tinha mesmo de agarrar este logo de seguidae felizmente é já amanha que tenho o terceiro :D

The beginning of the book wasThe sex scenes wereThe middle of the book was.How I felt about Neil's cancer.How I felt about SophieThe end of the book was.Venturing to the Book 3.???

That is it? Really?? Ugh. I haven't done any proper research or not but I truly think this may be the last book in the series. Bummer. There is so much potential in the story to keep it running for at least a few more books.*Spoiler alerts below (there truly isn't really any way to review this book without them, sorry!)*Okay, so this book picks up with the idea that Neil has cancer. And, the lovely Sophie has decided to travel to England to be with Neil during his extensive Chemotherapy treatmen [...]

Everything I said about the first book in this series applies here, too, and covers all the important things pretty well. I'll just add that this book gets into some more heavy territory, with an abortion and cancer and heavier BDSM, and it's all handled beautifully in my opinion. Not being a cancer survivor, or the carer of one, I can't comment on how accurately any of that was portrayed, but it felt genuine and authentic to me and none of it seemed fetishized or glossed over. Neil and Sophie d [...]

I enjoyed Boss a lot!! I understood Sophie and loved Neil. I mean Sophie's inner dialogue I could relate to. So I was excited to read The Girlfriend. So they had a tough decision, it was hard but they did then Neil has some news,he is sick. Sophie steps up, she grows a lot and is determined to stand by her man. Here's my problem, they seemed like two totally different people. It was like the characters were brand newI know characters grow and all but they just seemed so different than in Boss. s [...]

Well I didn't enjoy this one as much as The Boss, it had a number of things that I didn't care for. The first book The Boss ended with a cliffhanger and left a lot of unresolved issues. The Girlfriend starts out with Sophie dealing with unemployment, an unplanned pregnancy and her boyfriend (Neil) facing cancer. So many books that I've read recently have the unplanned pregnancy sub-plot, which I'm not a fan of. This is one of the first books that I've read where the main character decides to ter [...]

Okay - I was really torn on this one because I liked The Boss so much. In this I felt Sophie would take two steps forward and three steps back. I know she is 24, but there was such a level of selfishness and immaturity dealing with very adult topics. Take her abortion, I had no issue with the topic, but I had an issue that they really didn't talk about it at all. She read his non-verbal cues and made decisions based on that. Neil respected her right to choose, but there was so little discussion. [...]
