This is yet another book that was written to ride the 50shades/Bared to you Gravy train. While it does have a few original elements, there are a wealth of similarities from both books that you can’t help but notice.

Personally, i feel this is a 2.5 star read but I’m going to be generous and go for 3 as i am not the targeted audience.

I couldn’t understand the characters at all. They are a mish-mash of personalities and traits that make no sense when put together. The attraction makes no sense either, the hard silent male who is unavailable and only offers the greatest fuck of her life (which he never delivers even when he does fuck her) and a recluse who thinks he is a beautiful gentleman despite all evidence to the contrary but is constantly calling him the nemesis to her heart. I don’t get it.

The dialogue and writing style reminds me of a jane Austen novel, so very formal and proper. Basically, think of the fantasy Americans call a British accent and you know what reading this is like. The sex wasn’t very steamy. Deep yes, but lacking that heat.
All in all, i was disappointed, but then again as i said i don’t think this book is geared towards me.
