Book Recommendations / Re: Book Recommendations?

I'm not really fond of antiheroes. If they're a$$holes to anybody, eventually they'll be an a$$hole to you. I did read one of those series, purely because a friend sent me the first three books when I was homebound post-surgery years ago. I slogged my way through those three, waiting for either the heroine or the antihero to get a clue. Lots of sex happened, but no clues were found. People said it got better in the next book. According to a different friend, they had sex in the fourth book, but the guy was still an a$$hole. Frankly there was only one character in the whole series who was at all relatable, and that one was literally a minor character, as in a teenager.

Characters IA describes as alpha holes, like Kate and Curran, are different because they at least have codes of honor. I can overlook quite a bit from someone who at least tries to do the right thing. If their only purpose in the book is to raise the general level of hawtness, I'm out.

That is really interesting!

I still have a vague idea of writing a pandemic novel with a massively fatal virus (90%+ of the population) - and honestly I am 100% filing current pandemic response away for potential use in that project.
