Like, fantastic concepts and then terrible, terrible executions, all the time.

For instance, I just read one (ETA: ha, I automatically typed "a fic" there) where a guy gets attacked by a gun-wielding ex, argues with his demon-killing current boyfriend, goes to a conference at a creepy hotel, gets sucked into a hell-dimension, injured, nursed back to health, claimed by a terrifying demon who turns out to be his transformed boyfriend, almost gets murdered, makes a deal with a demon, betrays the boyfriend as part of a cunning plan, rescues everybody, and kind of proposes. Also he works through his issues about emotional reservation and independence. Also there's a flashback to how their relationship started.

THE FUCKING BOOK IS 106 PAGES. YOU CANNOT PULL THAT OFF, MARY CALMES.

The writing wasn't that bad, but the pacing made me want to punch EVERYTHING.
