My biggest problem with this book is that Adam knows how to repair all sorts of cars including old Camaros, he also knows how to operate backhoes, and yet he never learned to drive a manual transmission…this doesn’t make sense at all to me. I am very aware that this is nitpicky, but it is also representative of why I couldn’t entirely get behind/understand/fully relate to the characters in this book. I suppose they will be better developed as the series progresses.
And if I am going to be completely honest, my second biggest problem with this book is that it is not The Scorpio Races.

Erin Katie, I have mad love for the Scorpio Races as well

Holly I agree with your review. I just finished and am debating whether to go on with the series. I liked it well enough, but......
