hairdresser who s estranged sister has died in car accident leaving behind who s estranged sister has died in car accident leaving behind 2 month old son Suddenly uincy finds herself with sole custody of a baby she didn t even now existed Daniel Zavarro is a professional soccer player dedicated to his huge family bustling with his many siblings and their children however he relishes his bachelor lifestyle as a respectful playboy Daniel and uincy have a couple of chance encounters at their local Walmart and delve into a sort of friends with benefits type relationshipI can t bring myself to rate this any higher than two stars because it felt so fake Both characters felt very flat they were uite one dimensional The story is told in alternating POVs from uincy and Daniel A lot of their characterization comes from how they describe themselves which isn t necessarily a bad thing I just would have preferred to be shown what ind of characters they were instead of being told Interactions between characters felt very scripted and formal this was not conducive to the context of the dialogue the setting itself was generally a casual environment I feel very Mean Girl admitting this While reading I spent a good portion of my time either laughing or cringing at the absurdity I hope you understand what I m trying to say Basically the tone voices and conversation didn t feel real The narration wasn t superfluous sometimes this makes stories feel very raw in the case of Juked I think it made the story feel clinical The writing itself was error free grammatically correct and thorough With better execution Daniel could ve been a total book crush admitting to the internet that I have the potential to gain emotional attachment to a fictional character is a little daunting Daniel was a cool character for one he likes babies and he Os Peixes Também Sabem Cantar knows his shit about babies Have you ever seen a hot guy withids Like I don t even want t kids But seeing a fine ass man withids YOU BETTER GRAB THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER Daniel respects that casual sex reuires finesse and that not everyone can separate emotional intimacy with straight up sex He also doesn t believe in disclosing his sexual proclivities I may have no problem with random sex but I do have a problem giving other people personal details of our time together To me that s disrespecting my partner and I refuse to do that LASTLY he wants sex to be pleasurable for both of us and something he can really take my time with not something to be rushed through Unfortunately Daniel had a tendency to be a little corny sometimes I can let a little corny slide but when he used the dreaded but uincy isn t most girls I gagged My issues with uincy mostly stem from my issues with her best friend Geni The two of them made some not so subtle slut shaming digs towards a cleat chaser aka a groupie which always rubs me the wrong way regardless of context A huge part of uincy s character is that she s a new mother and her sister has just died I don t think we saw much of her character growth which I found a little disappointing In one instance uincy described the stadium where Daniel s team plays as being shaped like the bottom half of a soccer ball my reaction was to frown in confusion then face plant onto my desk uincy and Daniel were awfully uick to jump to refer to each other as their best friends That was a little weird to me but it s inda minorOn the logistical side of things there was this instance Mack Shivel decided to be a dick and taunt a forward from the other team Finally the ref had enough of his shit and he ended up with a yellow card Several times If you get SEVERAL yellow cards you get a red card and get sent off the pitch This literally makes no Meone special – and that suits him just fine He doesn’t want or need complicationsuincy has baggage and lots of it After a tragic accident spins her world on its axis she finds herself as a single mother raising a newborn nephew she never new she had Between parenthood her full time .
