OMG! Let me start this review by saying I picked Timber up as kind of a joke. It was free at the moment it came to my attention and by some of the reviews I just couldn’t help myself, I had to see what it was like.
I was hoping to get a raunchy Alexa Riley meets Jordan Silver kind of story, which proves to you I do read this trope when I’m in a certain mood, but this whole thing was just… confusing.
Harper, who comes from what seems a very narrow-minded, rigid religious family, is the epitome of innocent, sheltered young girl who turns into porn-star-worthy sex adept from just one look at the H. So that happens. But she has deep(ish) beliefs and she struggles with leaving the life her family chose. And then she doesn’t. And then she does again. And then she definitely doesn’t again.
Jax’s character made absolutely ZERO effing sense. He was supposed to be this manwhore who slept with anything that walked, landing himself in trouble. So, instead of being a grown-up and start discriminating where he puts it, he decides to seclude himself as “the city life is not for him anymore” and starts deforesting a mountain with his ax for no apparent reason.
The rest is some raunchy sex, a guy that goes over the side of hot-and-cold and into multiple-personality-disorder, a girl who’s so “naïve” she makes a jellyfish look smart, and a ton of other crap that makes almost no sense at all. I laughed my ass off at the absurdity of it all. In all honesty? I’d say don’t bother with this one.
