Officer and a Gentleman

An Officer and a Gentleman (Silhouette Intimate Moments, #370) - Rachel Lee I wavered between a two and a three for this, so I guess we'll call it a 2.5. It's not really actively bad, but it is so very much a Lego category novel that it's too ordinary to be any good either.As is the case with books like this, it's hard to review. I need some sort of emotion to work with and I was about as moved by the events of this novel as I would be from reading a take-out menu. Everything was laid out in a sensible order for me, but it had nothing that asked me to involve my heart. Meet cute lead to covertly staring at each others butts which lead to "the best sex ever" between a 40+ year old man and a 28 year old virgin which then lead to a marriage proposal and agreement to have kids within two months of meeting each other. All that pads this bloodless, cliche courtship out to 225 pages is a non-participatory mystery plot. You don't get to play the guessing game with her, so who gives a shit when it's resolved?So, boring as taxes, kids. Don't seek it out unless you like the tropes enough to slog through romance-by-numbers construction.
