Review: Splintered by AG Howard

My Rating: 2/5

Shit. Pretty much complete shit.

If you enjoy sexist bullcrap with an emphasis on over-bearing and aggressive romance coupled with a meandering, tissue-paper thin plot and populated with wisps of smoke on the breeze in place of supporting characters overseen by an unsettling puppet-master third-side of a hideous and oppressive triangle of love then by all means – be my guest and get ready to fall in love with Splintered by AG Howard. 1,285 more words
