Power Play: Resistance: Volume 1

Power Play: Resistance - Rachel Haimowitz, Cat Grant Want to smack them both upside the head.Seriously?! You take a person who's never seen a pool and grapple them into the deep end--they can't swim and they almost drowned as a kid and you're surprised that they freak out and will claw you/them/anything to get out? Are you that monumentally stupid? That's pretty much the approach to 24/7 TPE relationship here. But it gets even more spectacular WTFuckery--You realize you've fucked up and then decide the best way to end this is to torture him until he leaves--excuse me? Like the time you made him have a psychotic break so that he didn't know where he was and who you were wasn't enough of a clue. Hell no! Up the voltage! *throws hands in the air*Love the writing, but lost allegiance to either character due to ridiculousness. While Bran never should have signed up for something he didn't understand Jonathan should have known better, he's not a green Dom. They both screwed the pooch here though with the power relationship the weight of failure lies cleanly on Jonathan's shoulders--and the stupid decisions.Favorite quote:Beautiful faces got old fast, but beautiful minds . . . well, that was an entirely different story. A beautiful face to go with it was just icing on the cake.
