Pt. 11 of BWSNBN: She's Commando!

Currently Reading:  Finished Watermelon by Marian Keyes, and I'm glad I didn't read this one first.  The story was fine; I wasn't particularly fond of the overly-introspective parts.  But it did 'fill in' a few blanks about the Walsh sisters, and now I'm looking forward to Helen's story, whenever it comes out or whatever it's called.  I'll start Sabrina Jeffiries' How To Woo A Reluctant Lady after I finish a childhood favorite, #3 in the Trixie Beldon series, which I found in a box headed for Goodwill.  This particular book disappeared from my possession at age 13.

E-Books:  Finished Not An Angel, and was thrilled to see it does NOT resemble my current wip in any way, shape, or form!  And LOVED Kellie Kamryn's Monkeys, Sex, and Other Birthday Surprises.  Recommended Read:)  (yes, I'm a teensy bit favorable to Kellie's books, lol!)  Next up:  The One That Got Away by Kerrianne Coombs:)  So far, I've only read the prologue and liked it:)


I've reached the part of the story where she meets his parents and the majority of her thoughts center around the fact she's not wearing any underwear!!!  I'm sorry; if I'm having dinner with my new boyfriend's parents, the LAST thing on my mind would be 'OMG...I'm not wearing any underwear!' (insert whiny, little-girl voice).

Yes, I know; I've jumped ahead of myself.  Blame the fact I waited a week to read more, then hurled it across the room (okay; to be fair, my phone rang and I tossed it on the bed.)

Ch 19:
Pg 331:  Be honest; if you woke up and realized you were meeting his parents, would your first thoughts be 'He just worked me over with a riding crop....'?  Maybe she needed to get a word count in or something?  He clearly stated back in whatever chapter it was...he doesn't leave marks.  So what the hell does this have to do with anything?

Pg 332:  She's freaked out about C having her panties.  Then, in a 'fit of rebellion', she decides not to ask for them back and go commando, 'because this will drive him crazy'.  Ummm, he's probably going to be THRILLED with the knowledge she's commando, and this will be their little secret.

And how does she know she's smiling 'sphinxlike'?  And 'knows' he's waiting for her to say something about her panties?

3 'murmers' on pg 333.

Pg 334:  Three (3) paragraphs devoted to her 'freaking out' over being panty-less.  Who the hell is going to know unless you TELL them you're not wearing any?  Come on...like you're six...'but I'm not wearing any underwear!'

And why the hell can't she ask C what's on his mind?  Oh wait....the driver might realize she's not wearing any panties....

Pg 335:  Why is she concerned with 'there's nothing I can teach him'?  He's the one with the experience, dumbell....you're there to learn from him, and then find a way to surprise him!  That's what happens when two people become lovers.....or didn't anyone TELL you that?  And yet another panic attack about the panties?  Seriously?  Shut up about this already!

Why does she think her anger and jealousy at Mrs. R is 'irrational'?  She just pouted because Mrs. R taught him everything already!  That's justifiable....

"Bottom line, I want to be with him."  So quit obsessing over everything!  Oh wait....this is only halfway through the damn book.....(sob...I'm only halfway through this damn thing???  And yes, you can take that as 'son-of-a-bitch' or I'm in tears, lol!)

Pg 336:  I don't know how much time has passed in the last four pages, but now they've arrived and C askes if she wishes she wear wearing her panties.  Her response?  'Crap...I forgot I'm not wearing any.'  SERIOUSLY????  She's been obsessing over it now for FOUR PAGES!  If someone goes commando for the 1st time, I doubt it ever leaves their mind, especially to a dinner party!

Pg 338:  She's unnerved by everyone staring at her.  This didn't bother her during graduation?  Oh wait...she was in a cap and gown, and had her panties on.....

Why does she assume C was 'trapped' into bringing her to this family gathering?

Pg 339:  She wishes K would 'show some dignity', because she has the audacity to be happy her new boyfriend is going on vacation with her.  Dignity....and who's not wearing panties again???

Pgs 340-1:  She mentally tells him to give her back her panties.  Then is jealous of the maid?

Pg 342:  K has mentioned two things A hasn't mentioned to C yet, and A's furious.  And wonders if C will punish her.  Then remembers she's not signed the contract yet, so maybe he won't.  Or she'll stay with her mom a bit longer.  If you're afraid of him and what info comes out of your friends' mouths, why the hell are you still wanting to be with him???  Not a sign of healthy relationship.

Pg. 343:  Why is the sight of his parents obvious affection embarrassing?  And if she's watching the maid, how does she know C looks 'quizzically' at her?

Pg 344:  Does A speak fluent French?  If not, then how does she know what the conversation is about?

Pg 345:  He's tossed her over his shoulder and she's wondering why's he mad.  This isn't good....see pg. 342 comment.

Ch. 20
Things are pretty much okay until pg 354.  "Because I love you and you just see me as a toy."  Pretty much sums up the fact she's not ready for his idea of fun.

And that's the only issue I have with this chapter.

Think your comments are hysterical, Molly. Love reading them. They do me fine instead of the book WSNBN....

Molly Daniels said...

LOL....maybe I should go commando and obsess over it all day???? Bleh....

Cara Marsi said...

Molly, I love reading your review of The Book That Will Not Be Named. Hilarious. I always look forward to a new installment.

Molly Daniels said...

@Cari: Yay:) I'm happy to bring a smile to people's faces!

Marianne Stephens said...

this is too funny...I love your interpretation and page-by-page take on what's going on!
Very clever!

Carrie said...

Love the commentary on the book!

Molly Daniels said...

@Marianne: Honestly, my yellow hi-lighter and pen are the ONLY things keeping me sane while I read this!

Molly Daniels said...

@Carrie: I'm soooooo glad everyone is sharing my sense of humor:) Women keep telling me 'Oh wait until you get to book #3...'

I don't know if my sanity could HANDLE books #2 and 3. You notice the length of time between updates has increased to one week? Yeah; that's how long it takes me to get it out of my head. I replace it with a BETTER written book.

Amber Skyze said...

LMAO and this woman is making so much money.

Carrie said...

Yep! Kind of like a weatherman. I still don't understand how and/or why we have any of them in the northern region...oh wait, yeah I do, so they can tell us to stay off the snowy roads while they are on them! Oh yeah, I always talk about how stupid the weather people are because they're too busy worrying what they look like on camera than keeping themselves healthy, lol!
Can't wait for your next installment, lol! :)

Molly Daniels said...

@Amber: That's what kills me. And Hollywood bought into it also. Thank god my AU series is nothing like 90210 or Felicity was...though some of the Felicity storylines were similar. But then college and parties are timeless.

Molly Daniels said...

@Carrie: LOL....we yell at the weatherman for bad weather, then thank him when he warned us in time. Catch 22 for the poor guy!

Fiona McGier said...

Great job! I'm so grateful you are doing the hard work so I don't have to, and I enjoy every posting! Thanks!

Molly Daniels said...

@Fiona: LOL...you're welcome:) A friend of mine is on book #3, and now wants my take on books 2 and 3. Ugh. Not sure if I'm up for it or not; I'll decide when I finally finish this one.
