Breaking the Rules - Kitty Wilson

Will insert previous update links in the morning.


Chapter Four is Rosy's disastrous date with Simon the Toad. I will spare you further details. I don't know where the date was; there was a total lack of description.  Rosy ends up at her friend Lynne's house, where she learns that Matt's girlfriend is famous model Angelina.


chapter Five is the massive info dump of Matt's background as famous gardener.


the sad thing is that this could have been a really fun story.  Instead it's dull as dishwater.  It makes me wonder if Canelo Publishing has editors or just proofreaders.
