Review: Forever Kind of Guy by Khelsey Jackson

Forever Kind of Guy by Khelsey Jackson
Published October 4th 2013 by Hot Ink Press (first published October 3rd 2013)
Gretchen Elliot wasn’t looking for love, she’d had enough of ‘love’ to last her a life time. All she wanted was a little fun and a good time, and she’d found it in one passionate night with Claus. Now with her divorce about to be final, Gretchen can’t help but think back to that amazing night with that amazing man. Too bad they’d promised never to contact each other again.

A Chance encounter…

Stefan Romano never imagined that he would meet the woman who’d been haunting his dreams again, let alone arrest her for car theft. Now he can’t wait to get her beneath the sheets again. He just hopes he can keep her there this time, while fooling himself into believing he’s not a forever kind of guy.
Can two people not looking for love, avoid falling for each other and keep things on a no strings attached level? Gretchen and Stefan believe they can…

My Thoughts
Gretchen Elliott is in the middle of a messy divorce that is complicating her life. She simply wants a fresh start with no demands from her ex-husband. So when she comes across Stephan, a handsome officer that pulls her over for driving the car her ex reported stolen, the last thing she thinks she wants is a relationship… with anyone. However, when Stephan comes across as anything but the “forever kind of guy” she takes a chance.

Overall, I have to say this abbreviated story felt rushed and choppy. I guess that’s expected from a shorter story. However that wasn’t my biggest gripe. It’s no doubt that this book needs a good editor to clean and spot the many flaws and grammatical mistakes. They eventually became too excessive and it ultimately distracted me from the storyline that I was trying to grasp. For that reason alone, it doesn’t quite rank in the three star rating category.

I read this for the glowing reviews, but in the end it was simply an average story with characters I never really got to know and writing that was messy and flawed. I counted the phrase “forever kind of guy” THIRTEEN times in this story. I got it after the second time. Sadly, this wasn’t quite for me.
