ARC DNF Review: The Princess and the Rogue by Kate Bateman

Rating: 1 out of 5.

This book disappointed me, especially given the other ratings. I started skimming pretty much from the beginning, and eventually gave it up as it was clear that it wasn’t going to become a book I enjoyed.

The writing wasn’t particularly smooth and was the first strike against it. The next was the characters I couldn’t connect to or care about – in fact, they just irritated me. Then the cartoonish characterizations, improbable events, and unbelievable insta-lust. It became very clear very quickly that this is just not a book that I would enjoy.

I’m sure plenty of people will enjoy it – it seems plenty of other people do, from the other reviews. It’s just very much not for me.

*Thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for providing an e-arc for review.
