Review

I really thought I was going to enjoy this book more, but for some reason it just fell flat for me.

The synopsis was really promising and I couldn’t wait to find out more about these characters and while the start draw me into the story, it felt like more a chore to read it then not.

About 10% in a had a pretty good idea who Autumn’s husband was and by about 60% I was about to give up and DNF because I could pretty much see how the story was going to end.

I like Autumn and Gabe together but somethings annoyed me. While Autumn doesn’t really trust men she sure trusted Gabe pretty quick and Gabe was determined to start a relationship with Autumn even thou he prefers to take his time with getting to know people. I just seemed conflicting to the characters personalities.

While there were some parts that were entertaining, overall this story just didn’t really grab my attention like I was hoping for.
