Review:

Somewhere inside a whole lot of words is buried a pretty good story, so why did I say “maybe, maybe not?”  I’ll tell you why.

First, its romance, so there is bound to be sex, right?  Right!  I thought I was reading a screenplay for hardcore porn.  If that’s your thing, you will be enchanted.  It’s not mine.  Not that I don’t enjoy a good bit of sex in a romance, but I prefer that it is with a lot more feeling and a little less graphics!  Ewww…there are some things I would rather not have stuck in my head.  If you are the tiniest bit twitchy about reading sex scenes, you should not even consider this one.  I feel like I took a bullet for the team so I could give you that information.  You’re welcome.  I’m a real giver.

Second, and this one is harder.  This book is written in first person, present tense, which can be tricky.  When done well, it’s my favorite style, like reading a mystery inside a mystery, because we only know what is happening from the protagonist’s point of view.  When done poorly, it can obscure and confuse the story.  It was a problem for me from the beginning.

Third…I had a hard time liking Kate.  I knew all along that this book is new adult, which I mostly avoid, so some of my problem might be my own fault, but I didn’t like Kate very much. She spends a lot of time bemoaning the fact that the public and the paparazzi think she’s a spoiled,  rich brat, coddled by her billionaire father. I thought so too.  She’s only 22 years old, but I know teenagers that are more mature.

This all sounds like I didn’t like this series, but I did.  It won’t ever go on my re-read list, but it was pretty good.  Just because I had some issues, doesn’t mean you will.  If this sounds like something you might enjoy, pick up your free copy and…

Enjoy!
