She's the seduction expertWomen contact her to take over their love lives She steps in when they're lost she's supposed to succeed where they failed She handles their single status their relationships. .
Saya Lopez Ortega Ì 5 DownloadAppens next The premise is interesting but terribly cold and at this point in the story I can t say that I m cheering the Baroness on in her selfish and ruthless endeavors The story takes place in France and was possibly translated from French because much of the wording is a bit odd although I could figure out what was meant I will look for the second book to see if the Baroness has a change of heart in her manner of treating people or ets what she has coming to her from all sides because of all the things she has done to other people Thank you to VSP Publishing and NetGalley for this ARC screenshot 1screenshot 2I just want to start by saying that no I have not read The Seduction Expert nor will I ever after this email I was contacted over a week ago and asked if I would be interested in receiving a ebook arc in exchange for an honest review and that upon receiving it there would be a deadline to submit it by That was fine I was interested enough Well my ebook copy was sent to me today via email and as you can see I was asked to pretty much lie about my rating if it didn t meet 3 stars or above I was told that if I didn t like it to message them directly instead of posting my thoughts online but that s literally what I was asked to do I ve never ever had to deal with this kind of problem before personally I know that it happens but it s making me sick to my stomach because on top of this mess my email is somehow in a thread with other reviewers who are also upset and the individual who contacted us through some kind of publishing is supposed to remain professional and isn t I haven t responded to their original email and I probably won t because my anxiety is now at an all time high I don t appreciate my email being exposed to countless others and I m upset that other reviewer emails are too I ve taken out any names shown but keep this in mind if you re also approached about the book 15Ok lesson learned I knew oing in I wasn t the right reader for this book I should have listened to my little inner voiceThis book is listed as a romance and that is the furthest thing from the reality I was hard pressed to find anything of a romantic nature in this book So now I m left with the difficult task of describing this book Where do I start Women s fiction I think not Thriller Nope that doesn t work either I m at a loss Now I m all in for unlikable characters But they have to add something to the story The Baroness just didn t Unfortunately it s fundamentally just a book on arrogant narcissistic behavior And I must add was way over the top Simply not the right book for meI received a digital copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review I received a e copy of this book from the authorpublisher in exchange for an honest review And here is my review First lets briefly touch on the elephant in the room There appears to be a little concern for some reason about the way that the publishers are searching for ARC volunteers and strangely also about the ratings this book has so farWell I can honestly say I am a real strangely also about the ratings this book has so farWell I can honestly say I am a real although UPDATEYeah I m NEVER oing to review for this publisher again AVOID AVOID AVOID Check out the comments on my friends review here this one to mention a screenshot I captured of the publisher being a BCH before she obviously uickly changed her mind and deleted it You can see that Backyard gem HERE I have been on a reviewing break for a few months due to a crazy uni workload As much as I would like to keepoing through the uni
