Because I wanted to edit the hell out of this book. Even listening to it. There was so much repetition, certain words used over and over as well as statements and descriptions. And the sex scenes with the terrible euphemisms were even more cringe inducing read out loud. (And of course only came up when I was listening on speaker in the shower. D=)
Overall, I liked the story quite a bit, but I didn't like the Hero not coming to his senses before finding out what he needed to know. And Packard seems to write them going a step too far. This one wasn't as far gone as the sequel's hero by a long shot, but what he said to her was pretty bad. I would have liked more discussion at the end (with some hero groveling) to work some of that out.
