This book was basically two in one. Both were very cheesy. The first one had an interesting premise, yet the ending became a love story, which annoyed me so much. The second story was okay but I had an idea of where the manuscript was the entire time. And then in the end, it was destroyed as the cops came. I wouldn't read this again.
