This book gets a A for effort. But other than that I wasn’t too pleased with this read.
My biggest issue with this book was how slow it was. There is really nothing to say after that. It was very slow and that slowness in the story dipped into the personalities of the characters. They both were brats and felt not only entitled but they also were know it alls.
I could not stand either one of them however, I wanted to know more about where they end up which is why I kept reading. I liked how the author drew me in with just a hint of what to come.
But ultimately that couldn’t save this book. Even the romance part of it . . . just couldn’t save it.
Overall, this read was eh. 2 Pickles
