REVIEW: Wrong by Jana Aston

Read from December 27 to 28, 2016
Despite the fact that I like my books with more developed characters and a lot more plot, there were still other issues.
• The obsessive control from what's his name bothered me a lot, it was highly disturbing. Even worse is that nobody questioned this and everybody thinks it's normal to be ordered around by your partner without any explanation whatsoever.
• The plot twist (if you can even call it that) didn't feel logical at all, even though it was predictable. It even kinda felt like a set up.
• The best friend was crazy (stealing a car to duplicate your crush's house key, seriously? That's not something you can just brush off as a funny practical joke).
• Both of the main characters irritated me, they were selfish and seemed to start a relationship based on nothing but physical attraction. They were underdeveloped and had practically no growth.
If you skimmed/skipped all of the sex parts, there was hardly any book left. However, if that ('that' being a lot of sex) is what you want in your books, then still choose another one. The relationship (and half of the characters) is unhealthy and disturbing.
I picked up this book for two reasons:
One of the prompts of 2016's popsugar reading challenge was to read a book in which the protagonist had your occupation (student, in my case). And having a crush that ends up being your gynaecologist sounded funny.
It ended up not being funny, and not being about studying either (like, at all).
I have thus decided that NA is not for me at all, if this is what new adult books are like. (Why can't new adult mean we have our typical YA books but with protagonists over 18 years old?)
