Too Late

- Colleen Hoover

Goodreads Book Blurb:

Sloan will go through hell and back for those she loves.
And she does, every single day.
After finding herself stuck in a relationship with the dangerous and morally corrupt Asa Jackson, Sloan will do whatever it takes to get by until she’s able to find a way out.
Nothing will get in her way.
Nothing except Carter.

Sloan is the best thing to ever happen to Asa. And if you ask Asa, he’d say he’s the best thing to ever happen to Sloan. Despite Sloan’s disapproval of Asa’s sinister lifestyle, he does exactly what he needs to do in order to stay a step ahead in his business. He also does exactly what he needs to do in order to stay a step ahead of Sloan.
Nothing will get in his way.
Nothing except Carter.


My Review:

not my cup of tea:
Too Late reads like fan fiction of 21 Jump Street, written by a sheltered young person with limited awareness of the world. There are a lot of buzzwords thrown in – autism, schizophrenia, rape – to inflate the importance of the narrative, but there is only a very shallow discussion of these topics.

So much instalove. But apparently, in this case, it’s only bad when it happens with the wrong person – the one you didn’t know was into drugs and dealing and raping people. When you’re introduced to someone else as a dealer, it’s okay to instantly fall in love with him because, of course, he’s an undercover cop who can save you. But only after you get to act out your most extreme revenge fantasy that sounded stupid when you said it out loud, let alone once you followed through. Not that the rest of the story was believable, so it’s not like it shattered reality, but it was highly unnecessary.

Actually, this whole thing was highly unnecessary. I started at 2.5 stars, but I’m dropping to 2… the more you think about Too Late, the worse it gets.
