3.5/5

Another debut novel, but one that escapes a lot of the debut novel clumsiness, although I do have to gripe about the few times that Jasper was overly descriptive (ie: Riley’s shifting of the gears in her jeep, who cares?). I like Riley as a protagonist, she has a past that she’s not proud of, but one that she has learned from and she has taken a hold of her new life by taking responsibility for her teenage brother after their mother passed away. There were some moments where I felt like Riley might be a Mary Sue character by the way the author had her toot her own horn as far as her artwork and stuff goes, but maybe that was just debut novel clumsiness and I read it as something else.

The setting, the plotline and the seriously hot Eli Dupre kept me turning the pages. I can’t wait to see what happens next and will definitely pick up the next book in the series.
