Review: I found myself wondering if this was all the author wanted to talk about. Sure, it showed the promises of a good story but I just didn’t feel like I could understand the characters. Sure, someone could be burned by the past of bad relationships but I didn’t feel like I could get to know the characters. The story didn’t seem that strong to me.
The more I read the more I felt the story getting stronger and yet by the time it was done, I felt like it had gone flat. The story had pretty much stopped when it was finally getting good. I cannot quite pinpoint what happened in the author’s mind but it just didn’t hold onto my interest.
