Trying too hard

Fairy Godmothers, Inc. has a super cute cover and promises fake relationship and fairy tale trope so I was super duper excited to read this. In fact I used my points to absolutely make sure I got a copy. Unfortunately the story did not live up to my expectations. It was so hard to read this book. I kept trying and just was not enjoying myself at all. I'd take a break and try to come back to it later hoping it would suddenly click with me, but it just never did. It was a bit steamier than I thought it would be, which isn't a problem in itself, but just added to one of the many things I think added up to a DNF for me. The writing style was not clicking with me and I felt like everything was just trying way too hard. It just never seemed to flow. After a long struggle and several attempts I decided to just call it, which makes me really sad because I rarely give up on a book once I've started. If I ever decide to try again and feel differently at that time then I will update my thoughts here.
