All That Glitters Landry #3

Y can forget even the shocking reason she and Paul must wed in a secret ceremony and remain husband and wife in name alone But the thick expensive walls of Cypress Woods cannot shut out the terrible memories that have woven their fabric over her destiny or the cold eyes of Paul's mother Gladys reminding Ruby of the secret she must keep to give Pearl a loving father Then her venomous twin sister Gisselle arrives to taunt her with news of I don t even have a proper way to begin this review So I ll just put about as much effort into this as Andrew Neiderman didThis book sucked Honestly Ruby is about as likable as Christina Aguilera s character in Burlesue She Is Awful Once again we have a Mary Sue that is just so damn sweet that nothing can taint her aura of perfection And trust me in this book she does plenty that would cause uproar in any other universeI guess the best place to start is with Ruby who at this point is unbearably Mary Sue like except less perfect but still acts as though she is and the author writes her as though she s flawless In the last book I gave Ruby a break because she was still a victim of her circumstances but in All That Glitters she actually does some shitty stuff with hardly any repercussions and somehow we re still supposed to feel sorry for her She marries her half brotherchildhood sweetheart Paul but then has a secret affair with her baby s father once he comes back into the story then for some reason decides to inform Paul that she would like to switch places with her comatose twin so that she and Beau can be together which ultimately leads Paul to drown in a drunken stupor But Ruby s the victim right Everything about this plot was stupid selfish and unnecessarily difficultThen there s the affair Now I just hate the whole troupe leading up to it because it follows yet another troupe of bad communication causing problems for idiots To sum it up Ruby s been told by Gisselle that Beau s moved to Europe with his new fiance and since her chances of being with him are clearly out the window she decides to marry Paul upon that basis Little does she know that Beau broke off the engagement and came back to for her Since common sense doesn t exist in this series and Beau can t just seek Ruby out in the most obvious place she would flock to Beau decides that if he can t marry Ruby then he ll simply marry someone that looks like Ruby Yeah that says so much about what he really appreciates about Ruby her looks Eventually even fucking a Ruby lookalike isn t enough for him so Beau and Ruby start hooking up again Never mind the fact that Beau pretty much abandoned Ruby and her baby and then decides to take Ruby away to take care of her sexually while allowing Paul to continue taking care of her in every other aspect but it s okay He weakly assumes that his own wife has a bunch of her own boyfriends so that totally justifies his own infidelity Why doesn t Ruby and Beau simply divorce their spouses and marry each other Because that would give other people even bad reasons to dislike our precious Ruby and our ghost writer s ego is just too fragile to have his main character be purposely unlikableI ll end my rant with Paul s mother Gladys who is supposed to be kind of a co antagonist in this book simply due to the fact that she doesn t adore the crap that comes out of Ruby s ass And really she is just an awful person First of she s completely against the son that she s loved as her own marrying his half sister because what s the worst that can happen there And when her son dies in a drunken stupor she takes revenge against Ruby by selfishly taking away the baby she already abandoned as her own by taking on Gisselle s identity Honestly I was on Gladys side in this book Paul was driven to his death because Ruby wanted to have everything with no conseuences and all Gladys did was show her that even she wasn t above reproach Ruby almost lost her daughter because getting her one true love without anyone hating her for it was the most important thing in the world and she really didn t think about any conseuences when making the decision to switch places with her twin Does it totally justify what Gladys did No In a well written book with a realistically likable protagonist trying to take custody of someone s child beyond the grounds of unsafe living environments would have been borderline evil But given that Gladys did have her reasons to hate Ruby I ll give her a pass in this review At least someone had the balls and the backup to let Ruby know she wasn t a ray of sunshine on everyone s livesEverything that I hated about the way Andrew Neiderman wrote Ruby was exacerbated in this book Ruby is written as the most perfect beautiful human on the planet her mistakes and flaws are obvious than ever and Neiderman relies even on other characters liking her to justify those flaws I can t even finish the series now thanks to All That Glitters it was that hard to get through I don t care any what happens to Pearl and I could care even less about what happened to Ruby s mother I m so done with this red haired devil from the depths of her mother s supposed perfection Penguins Poems for

Woods cannot shut out Art as Music, Music as Poetry, Poetry as Art, from Whistler to Stravinsky and Beyond the Ask the Past terrible memories Using Natural Finishes that have woven Anatomy of Violence
