My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A friend recommended me to this author and series and going off of her recommendation I was happy to read. BUT I find myself torn. On the one hand I really can see the potential, the plot is a good one, there are all the elements for a fantastic story, however, things to me read hiddledy piggledy and I found myself tiring at the same time. On the other hand I find myself wanting to read more to find out where the story is leading.
I can see, literally see, where the author is going with this story but there was just something I couldn’t grasp. I don’t know what it was but I find myself uncomfortable, I know the story is supposed to be a gripping one but I just couldn’t connect. I needed to feel involved in the story and I didn’t BUT I didn’t hate it either.
The main female character, I just could not take to and I really wanted to connect with her, I mean she’s the main stay of the story well her and Alex, I just found myself wanting more of that oomph factor.
I’m definitely going to stick to the story and read the next one. I have this need to find out whats going to happen and goddamn it I want to fall in love with the characters.
