Red Velvet by Acik Lana // book review

I have not read a Malay book in a really long time. I want to discover new local writers and want to enjoy reading them. So far I haven't found anything that I like.
When I found out about this book from a friend, I was intrigued so I decided to give this book a chance. 

Red velvet

What the book is about?
"Helena tidak mempedulikan tohmahan mahupun kata-kata nista orang sekeliling bila dia ingin berkahwin dengan Fareeq yang merupakan suami orang. Lantaklah! Janji dia bahagia. Malangnya, Fareeq tidak menepati janjinya untuk mengahwini Helena. Perbuatannya itu menyebabkan Helena kecewa setengah mati.

Dalam mengharungi kehidupannya yang huru-hara, Helena bertemu dengan Izzat yang sinis, ego, berlagak tak bertempat. Semua ini menambahkan kekusutan di kepala Helena. Baker bajet hot yang bekerja di bakeri cabuk itu sentiasa mencari pasal dengan Helena. Ada sahaja yang tak kena di matanya. Dan keadaan semakin tegang apabila keadaan memaksa Helena bekerja dengan Izzat di bakeri yang sama. Hinggalah… hati mereka bertaut dengan kasih. Namun, rahsia Helena terbongkar sewaktu mereka berdua asyik menyulam cinta. Macam mana bila lelaki yang anti homewrecker, berdepan dengan homewrecker itu sendiri?" excerpt from Goodreads.com

What do I think?
Oh boy, where do I begin? I started reading the book until chapter 15 and then I just can't read anymore. I wanted so bad to love the characters and the love story but I am not. I skipped a head a few chapters hoping that the more I get into the story the more I will like it but that did not happened. So I decided to stop reading. It might not be fair for me to review the book when I did not finished reading but I just wanted to document my experience in this blog so that I remember what type of book I don't enjoyed as well. I just cannot get into her writing style and I don't care that much about the characters. The only thing that I love about the book is red velvet cake heheh.

I am not sure if I will recommend this book. I am so sorry if some of you really love the book. I just didn't.
