The stellar reviews that convinced me to try this (it was free for kindle, I honestly didn't take much convincing) insisted any reader ignore the cover and stick it out beyond the first few chapters. With this in mind I kept reading even when the writing was weak and the protagonist's first hurdle was handled sloppily. I thought things would get better when the action started picking up but no such luck.

This honestly could have been a good book, but the story required more care than it was given. There was far too much telling and not enough showing, no pacing, and the main relationship felt awkward (even for what it was) as a result. Frankly, it reads like a weak fanfiction and at least with those you care about the characters.
