Wow, was this bad. The writing was horrid and the plot, cliched.

The love interests meet in the first few pages & despise each other. From the first 100 pages, it is clear the rest of the book will be about their struggle. Finally, they'll find they don't hate each other but actually love each other madly.

To be honest, I really wasn't a fan of either character. I could really care less about them.

Some of my favourite written atrocities:

A character is shoved, face down into the mud. "Dirt painted his tongue." Painted?!

"Suspicion yet swam through her voice like fish in a stream." Say wha?!?!

"Air shoving in & out of his nostrils like a wild mob, he stared at the ground."

Sooo bad.
