I guess I could stretch it to 3 stars



I’m sure the majority of my GR friends will hate me after this. Again.



But I was always honest about my feelings and opinions in my reviews and I’m planning on staying that way. Everybody's entitled to their opinion, right?

First of all, I'd like to point out that I wasn't expecting Dostoevsky. I mean, I knew what I was getting myself into. I just wanted to have fun, to read something light and mood-lifting. I love both authors and their works. I was completely aware this book could be a bit predictable and that was okay, I was ready for it.

However, one thing I can’t stand in books is manufactured drama and ridiculous, eye-roll inducing storylines. And here I had to suspend HUGE amounts of disbelief. The story in the second half became so ridiculous, over the top and cheesy that I simply could not enjoy it anymore.



My second problem is insta-love.

Although I did feel the connection between the characters, I did not feel their love or chemistry. Even the sex scenes were boring and felt unemotional to me. I've read lots of books with no sex in them that felt way hotter and more exciting.

The positive side?

I really enjoyed the first half of the book. It’s full of witty banter and funny situations which I loved. I liked the writing. I even liked the characters (Although the heroine felt a bit two dimensional. Her character was not as developed as the hero’s character in my opinion.)

All in all, this book is fun and entertaining if you don't mind over-the-top soap opera worthy drama. And I'm one hundred percent sure this will be a winner for a lot of readers.
