Review:

The description and cover image was definitely intriguing enough to attract my attention, and I was not disappointed with the romantic element of the book. However, I was not able to relate or emphatize with any of the characters in the book. The character development resulted in two weak individuals who competed for the title of who can be more annoying. While the story was based on a solid plot line, it failed to translate into an equally captivating and catchy storyline that the title and the cover image hinted at. The writers are definitely talented, but style of writing of using various monologues and introducing too many characters with no strength of personality definitely made the plot more complicated than it was required.

My opinion:

Either you will love this book or you will hate it mainly because of the characters. But this book is definitely not of my taste

My rating: 2 out of 5
