Wow I am so in the minority right now it's not even funny.

Let me start by saying that I enjoy Jennifer's writing style especially in Obsidian and I also love a good steamy romance.

But unfortunately with this I felt like I'd read it all before & better.

I know this was a novella but I've read novella's before & been able to connect with the characters for eg Connected.

I was so tired of hearing how humiliated & rejected the h (I can't remember her name, it's like i wiped it from my memory or something) felt & how hopelessly in love she was with Chase.

As for Chase...yeah he didn't exactly set my world on fire.

After reading the first few chapters, waiting & waiting to be sucked into the story I gave up & just started skimming (I hate to not finish a book).

It was inevitable that the two would get together & then misunderstand each other then get back together..it was SO predictable.

And to be honest I didn't really care either way.

So many of my goodreads friends who have read this have absolutely loved it so it is obviously just me, maybe I wasn't in the right frame of mind to read this or something I don't know, but it just didn't do it for me.

Amy same here


Duchess Nicole It was easily forgettable for me, too.


★Ruth★ Phew...I'm starting to feel a bit better about it now :)


Terri ♥ (aka Mrs. Christian Grey) I agree with your review.


★Ruth★ Thanks Terri :) Did you not enjoy it either?


Terri ♥ (aka Mrs. Christian Grey) It wasn't as good as I hoped. I did enjoy but it wasn't the freshest plot. Still the Gamble brother was totally hot.


★Ruth★ I think due the hotness that is Daemon (or Dawson in your case) I was just expecting so much more :(

Chlo I agree with you TOTALLY...it was just...eh. It was nothing. It was okay, it was fine, totally all right. But nothing special...and this coming after the Lux series and Covenant series...total letdown! :S


★Ruth★ Fingers crossed the next installment is better!


Shh I'm reading! It wasn't just you. I felt the same way.


★Ruth★ Good to know Shh, she has so many die hard fans that I am nearly scared to write a negative review LOL


Bonnie Couldn't agree more
