DNF (07/17)
God, I just really dislike all these characters... and the story too.

The plot sounds alright (which is why I picked up the book), but all the characters just come across as whiny, assholes. Even the support characters are irritating as hell. The only one who I can't say straight out that that I don't like is the brother Alex, and that's likely only because he hasn't actually said much.

The story itself is just fluff (that's why we love these kind of books), but the way it's being written is just grating on me for some reason. There seems to be lots of 'telling instead of showing' in FR's writing style. There's nothing 'fun' about their interactions, they are just brittle and only tend to highlight that each of the characters are self absorbed assholes. The whole blackmail thing is just starting and it's just 'blah'. If you are going to write an asshole blackmailing someone, do it. But the author seems to spend a lot of time trying to convince us that these two 'are really great people', but they are so far from that that it's not even interesting.
