I'm giving this one 3 stars and calling it a day because I honestly think the problems more me than the book. I wish I could say it was awesome and I loved it but I can't it was ok and I may consider book 2 down the road but for now this just wasn't my cuppa' so I'm going to put this series on the back burner for now.
I know this one had some really good reviews but I just wasn't feeling it. I should have been gutted by this story, I should have been going through tissues non-stop and yet somehow I was left muttering "Yeah, yeah, whatever let's get on with the story." I don't know if it's a carryover from my lack of love for the last book I read or maybe I've just developed a case of coldheartedbitchitis, whatever the cause I readily acknowledge that this was not the book for me to read at present.
So my apologies to the author but even though I readily admit my present state of mind contributed to my lack of enthusiasm for this book I'm still only prepared to give it 3 stars.
