I received a copy of this book from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.

I wanted to DNF this book so bad. However, because I already promised to never DNF anything, I pushed in and finished the whole thing. I do this because I want to show the authors enough respect to finish their book no matter how much I regret it. That being said, it is with all due respect when I say that I did not like this book at all, not even a little bit.

I’m not a fan of YA. However, there are some YA books in my shelf that I rated 5 red hearts and will actively promote to other readers. Therefore, when I say that I did not like this book, it is not because of the genre. No. It’s really because of the whole plot.

There was no end goal. All through the book, there we’re repeated parties, hanging out, fucking, drinking, and flirting that went on. The his and his friends were all too busy with booze, drugs, and girls. However, with everything that occupied his time, he still finished as class valedictorian. Wow. How perfect can he get? Not.

I feel like their was a huge indecision on the author’s part regarding characters and their development. First, starting with how into Calista the hero was. And then painting her as hurt when they talked about his conquests. And then nothing  happened. And then the hero met the heroine. But he still kept on sleeping with Calista. And then Calista was painted as a gold digger. And then back pedaled again and Calista really liked the hero. Seriously, she had more character complexities than the heroine. All the heroine did was be the hero’s friend and accept him every time he was with another girl.

There was no love in this book. I’m sorry, but it was just a sad story that went nowhere. I had high hopes for this book. When I read the blurb, I though there was going to be some sort of redemption for the player hero. But no. No one was redeemed here. Even the heroine was sometimes TSTL. I’m sorry, but I didn’t like this book.
