Genre: YA Romance
Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
The sexy cover and the intriguing blurb are what captured my attention, but once I started to read, great writing style, intriguing concept, but sadly, lacking characters.
I was expecting better character development. Robin was too whiny, an attribute that really grates me in female protagonists. For the age that the characters were suppose to be, they seemed too immature. I was left feeling like the surface was scratched, never being led deeper. For me, the proper emotions were missing or in the wrong place.
I enjoyed the concept of the story, but I was left frustrated, wanting a deeper connection to the characters. I lacked the emotional pull to make me invested in them. They were too see-through, not meaty enough and the story was too much of a surface story. I will try other works by Lauren Hammond, I have faith in her writing style, I just hope the characters will elicit more from me.
Reader Warning: This book contains a lot of cussing and sexual content. I would only recommend this to older YA readers.
