it was ok

Honestly, I found this story to be Twilight rewritten with aliens. Down to the very similar situations and scenes and characters. Meeeeeh.

I don't find "physically flawless" jerks attractive. I'm sorry. He only has two defining qualities. Hot body and JERK. MEEEHHHHHHH.

I finished this book, so that says something about the flow of story. I just couldn't get over the informal (and sometimes lazy) writing (overuse of words like "hot" and "dick" and "stuff"). I have no real interest in continuing this series, really.

I gave it a try, because EVERYONE loves it. But it's just not all that great to me. I'm just not invested. Sorry.

2 pity stars, because I finished it.
