3 tries and I couldn’t get past the Whiny

Black Angel (Dangerous Spirits Book 3) Kindle Edition
by Kyell Gold 
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I came into this book as the first in the series I’ve read. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to read it all the way through. I tried three separate times, getting as far as about 1/3 of the way through.
The plot is, well, kind of non-existent. A young otter is trying to figure out why she isn’t attracted to anyone, even though she has people attracted to her.
Part of the problem that I had was that for some reason, the author kept harping on the fact that because she didn’t have a male love in her life, everyone assumed she was gay. I have read a lot of LGBTQIA romances, and never run into that particular mess. Also, that at 19, she had to be bed hopping or something is wrong with her. Perhaps, this book is designed for Millennials, because a member of GenX, I wanted to smack Meg, the main character upside the head and tell her to stop whining.
The dialogue, however, was snappy and very well done. That is why I kept trying. I enjoyed the characters each having a speech pattern.
Unfortunately, that is the only recommendation I can give, if you want jaunty dialogue from side characters and a whiny main character who can’t get out of her own way, this is the book for you.
If plot, motivation, or anything resembling a story, elsewhere would be a good choice..
