I was asked to review this book by TLC Book Tours and I was super excited to receive the book. From what I'd read it sounded really good and unlike any of the books I'd been reading lately. At first I found the book a little hard to get into simply because I had to get used to author Joshua Gaylord's writing style. But the minute things heated up in the book I found that I was ready to get to the meat of the book. Every character in the book, I found, was very real but I had a hard time liking any of them. Each character does things that are just ridiculous and with the girls acting far more womanly than they are and then men acting far more childish than they are I couldn't really like any of them. I will say that one I got used to the writing style I really liked it. And all in all it was a good story. However, I generally judge books on whether or not they make me feel something and whether or not they stick with me when I'm done with them. This book didn't really make me feel anything and when I was done I was just... done. I didn't miss any of the characters afterward. It was a good read but not the best I've ever read either.
