I love M.L. Rhodes. I enjoy her stories and her characters, some more than others but thats just personal perspective. However, I really could go without reading this part of any line again 'so damned much'. I am to the point that I know when that part of a sentence is coming and I cringe. Why? I think its because its repeated in every one of her stories. Does it make me stop reading? No. Does it make me say a silent prayer to whoever is listening that she drop that line from her vocabulary? Yes, so damn much.
