Well, that book really wasn't any good. The story isn't told in a good way, I'm rather confused with some parts.
Might read the next part of the series just to see if I can understand more about it, but I'm not that interested to know more either. The MC are also a bit... badly written. I can't really see what her motivations for a lot of stuff is. And also the "love" part of the story are really confusing. She's had a one-night-thing with another person and suddenly he's her "love of the life" and they are going to marry and all that jazz, and they don't even know each other. Really confusing.

Can't really recommend this book to anyone.
