Review: Hmm… Not too sure what I should think or say about this one.

The beginning of the book was almost boring. I mean sure, the descriptions of action scenes had you feeling like you were there, but in between it all, descriptions of the past were almost tedious, making you wonder if the author would get past them. Some of them almost didn’t seem like they should have been part of the story, only used as fillers. It was getting almost to a point where I wanted to skip past them by skimming, in search of dialogue. The sex scenes were pretty good, but still seemed to lack some creative thought.

Although they were complicated, the characters lacked imagination. It was almost like Zack and Sabrina ended up together cause that was what was planned. It all seemed unexciting.

And all of it was predictable. At first you’ll read the characters and almost be sure of what’s going to happen and ‘who’ it is. I’ll admit that even though I knew something was off in a certain character, I was surprised it was that character.

Is it enough to warrant reading the second novel? Unsure at this point. It wasn’t a bad book by any means, but its predictability has me hesitating.
