Review: Have you ever read one of those fanfictions where the plot is eh, along with the writing style as well? Because that is exactly how I would explain this book. I honestly thought there was a lot of potential for this novel, but after reading it I only feel indifferent towards it. There were parts that I really loved and certain sentences that were beautifully written, but those were sparse. I was also appalled by the amount of grammar errors I found throughout the novel. One or two mistakes is understandable, but anything more than that is too many. There were way more mistakes than just two. However, it wasn't just the grammar mistakes that annoyed me. Both the main characters had gone through a lot in their past, but none of the after-effects are realistic. Somehow, just being with the other person magically makes everything better. I am sorry, but as much as I want my significant other to magically cure my social anxiety, he doesn't. But somehow Grayson can cure all of Huntley's traumas. It is completely unrealistic. Various other events throughout the novel follow suit in not being realistic as well. I really wanted to like this book, but it's really hard for me. Despite all the negatives I have shined light upon in this book, I did want to finish it. And I did. It does have an intriguing aspect to it and there is never a boring part in the book. If you like a lot of drama, then I fell like you might enjoy this book more than I did. It also has a happy ending (and if it was spread over a longer period of time) then I feel like I would have enjoyed this novel a lot more. But if you enjoy fanfiction (think typical One Direction fanfiction) then you might enjoy this book!
MORE THAN ONE
Love those books that involve multiple characters in a series throughout various books? Well then Tamsyn Bester's novels will be a treat for you!
This is definitely a very mature book due to sexual content. Just so you know what you are getting yourself into.
