They say there’s a fine line between love and hate. I hate Rob for the distance he placed between us. He cut out a piece of my heart, but I can’t forget or move on.
Now Rob tells me he needs me. The sensible thing is to walk away, but I want Rob too much. I love him more than I should. The world says it’s wrong because his mom married my dad. But the rest of the world can burn for all I care.
For a book that opens with a death, the opening was lackluster at best. There’s an abuse theme that should’ve been an easy way for the reader to connect with the characters, and yet, there was no attachment to any of them.
All the characters came across as flat and cookie-cutter. I didn’t care about any of them in any way. Reading through, it was near impossible to keep them straight when they all talk and act alike. That alone made me want to walk away from the book, just from reading the prologue.
Combine the poorly constructed characters with the writing and the book was unreadable. Everything was flat, with repetitive word usage. It’s best described as amateurish and not the quality I’d expect coming from a publisher or a multi-published author. While this was technically correct from a grammar standpoint, there was nothing about the writing that said “well-written.”
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
