Annoying protagonist - 15% in.

Unchained  - J. Lynn

This is not starting off well. You know how within the first 20 pages, you get a good feel for how the rest of the book is going to go?

 

Hoo, boy.

 

The heroine is SUCH a cool person because she's all nomming like a bloodthirsty savage on a freaking HAMBURGER, man. And don't even talk about the DELICIOUS FRIES. OM NOM NOM. She's cool because she eats a fucking burger. I don't care.

 

All of a sudden, this douchebag angel or whatever bursts onto the scene and is a huge douchebag to Lily, only it makes her go wet in the panties (literally) all the while he's calling her "My Lily," and taunting and teasing her and acting more like a frat boy than an Angel/half Angel, whatever. I haven't figured out what he is yet.

 

And the stupid hunter girl gets reprimanded for wearing a miniskirt on a mission. And she's got a hell of a temper.

 

There's a way to do a strong, intrepid heroine who doesn't skate the line into bitchiness. There's Rose Hathaway. There's Yelena. There's Penryn.

 

Lily---honestly...is just a bitch.

 

This doesn't bode well.
