I went into this book with pretty high expectations. I've been a fan of Katy Evans since Real and thought that based on the reviews for this book, I was guaranteed to love it. Not so!


Don't get me wrong. This book was fantastic even with the cliffhanger (luckily I started this series when the other books were printed or I'd be extra pissed). It just wasn't as powerful as I thought it would be.

A lot of that had to do with the fact that I could barely stand Rachel.


Honestly, this chick kept riding my last nerve. Imagine how much it pissed me off that the entire book was told from her POV. Arrrrrrggggghhhhh!! One of her characteristics that really annoyed me the most was her "coyness". To me it seemed she was constantly playing freaking games (I get that he was an assignment) and I dislike mindgamers. Wasn't she the one showing up everywhere Malcolm was like some stalker/groupie in order to get his attention? Then as soon as she got it she played fickle. She even tried to treat him like a one-nighter when she had next to no sexual experience. Also, was I really supposed to take her journalism career seriously??? She barely made any money. Successful businesses weren't trying to poach her. Yet she went on ad nauseam about her "notes" and her "investigation" and how knowledgeable she was about things beyond her tax bracket. She wasn't realistic and if she were, she's be TSTL.

Malcolm, however, made this story worthwhile for me. I would have sold my left breast (not literally) to have gotten his POV. Mrs. Evans did a great job creating his mysterious character. I constantly wanted to know what he was doing, what he was thinking, how he was feeling. Everything about him intrigued me. His fictional looks, quirks, actions, etc.

I'm looking forward to reading book 2 and finding out how Malcolm deals with Rachel after her betrayal.

Enjoy! xo
