| I have GOT to cut it out with the Blazes

Seriously, on page 14 of this most recent one it descended rather quickly into the vice cop hero seeing a woman in a short dress and thinking that she was "inviting trouble" and then when a couple college kids admit that they tried to HIRE HER TO HAVE SEX WITH THEM the vice cop LOLz at them, thinks they're "clueless but harmless" and sends them on their way with a firm admonition not to drink and drive and then rushes off to tell that dirty-dressing hooker off for...I'm not sure what since she was introduced when he noticed her YELLING AT SOME GUYS NOT TO TOUCH HER. (Oh, and on the way over to yell at her he, of course, thinks about how he doesn't do hookers but damn he'd like to take her for a ride.)|
And then, because I had this tiny, minuscule hope that maybe she'd kick him in the balls for this behavior, I flip to her POV where she is crushed because the hero thinks she's a hooker. Which he tells her by saying, "that dress doesn't exactly scream all-American sweetheart" or something equally horrific. And it turns out she's just a tomboy with naught a female friend or family member in the world to teach her how to dress up pretty enough to find a date without "making a mistake" and ending up looking like a hussy.
Kill me now.
No really, why are y'all not killing me?
It could be worse! It could be that NASTY epublished erotic romance shit, and his twin brother could have shown up to help the hero along in taking the heroine for a test drive.
...great, now I want to die too. >: (
I'm not killing you because it's not YOU that makes me want to kill.
Although I will say for the author that it seems to be a very accurate depiction of a distressing amount of the cops I know.
And if it were not a book where I was supposed to be invested in the hero being rewarded with this woman's HOT SEXXIN within 50 pages I'd give her mad props.
The only thing I want to see this hero rewarded with is the clap.
Getting the clap would mean he got laid. I'm more into the lawsuit area of rewarding myself.
He could get it by being violated with a tent peg. That would make ME happy.
Maybe that has already happened. He did have that gay moment on page 10, and we know what Anne McCaffrey says about tent pegs...
Maybe we should form a tent-peg brigade.
*sends ghost-Bree back to her corpse to resurrect*
Do they call that line "Blaze" because it makes people want to set them on fire?
Maybe that could be the attitude of a cop who ISN'T the hero? And the hero can tell him off for his sexist ways?
I would read this. Or possibly write it.
