I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Sometimes, there are books where the author did everything right, but I just couldn’t get myself to like the book. I mean, this book had everything going for it. It was a good story. It had a great hero. It was well-written. I don’t understand how I couldn’t fall in love with it.

I know it is a bit unfair because I am rating it based on personal preference. However, let me just explain my point for a little while. First up, blurbs Xander be deceiving. I have proven this many times. This book had a blurb that gave me the impression that there was something darker, something more unforgivable in the secrets that both main characters had. I was a bit disappointed here.

Then, there is the fact that while a book may have the best hero ever written in modern fiction, if his counterpart does not have the same greatness, then there’s no point to everything. People want both hero and heroine to be great characters that they will love. They don’t have to be perfect. They just have to be human, and they just have to deserve each other. This book clearly had an immature heroine who almost ruined the whole thing for me.

Now that I’m done ranting, let me just say that while I did not really connect with this book, a lot of readers out there surely will. As I’ve said, it has a good story, and that alone should entice people to read it. My rating is of course, always going to be subjective, so I really won’t discourage anyone to read this book.
