So the first 70% of this book gets 3 stars. While I really did like Silver & Zeb better than the couple in book 3 (Gavin & Jamie) the story felt stilted and I kept reading and reading and in spite of the fact that things were happening it felt like the story was going nowhere and there was no progress being made. Thus resulting in me frequently wandering away to do whatever popped into my head.
Finally the last 30% grabbed me and held my attention so while my rating overall will stay at 3 stars. There is a section of the story that gets a solid 3.5 stars from me. I liked what was happening. The progress being made, Silver and Zeb finding a way back to each other, trying to work things out and...
WHAM, BAM THANK YOU MA'ME!!! Story over...the end. Again, again I get to the part where I'm truly beginning to enjoy things and it's over and so is my 3.5 star read and we remain at 3 stars only now for me it's 3 shakey stars that aren't shining quite as brightly. I'm sorry Ms Mitchell I know it's your story to tell but I needed just a little bit more. I was starting to genuinely care about these two characters as a couple and just when I was really getting into the story it just ends and I'm left feeling like someone kicked my puppy.
Also just as a side note and not something reflected in my review or my rating, out of all the covers I find this one to be a bit of a disappointment. Sorry but the guy who is suppose to be Silver looks like he's in his mid-thirties not his early twenties and Zeb well he just looks way to strung out to be appealing. But this is totally based on my personal taste and honestly covers never factor in to ratings or reviews for me as it's the story that I'm after. Although I do admit they are a factor when shopping for books, but in this case it was a predetermined purchase because I decided to buy the book based on having read the first two and really enjoying them. For me I'm not sure at this point whether or not I will continue the series if t here is more. I have no interest in Beach's story nor the character of Marco who was introduced as a friend of Silver's in this book, but you never know. I like K.A. Mitchell so I may change my mind...oh wait my mind isn't made up so I'll just wait and see.
