Brittany's Review
I dove straight into this book with no expectations. When I first started reading this I wasn't so sure if  I was going to enjoy this book or not. It has some rough storyline which always tugs on my heart for a character, but I felt like there was something missing. I told myself that I was going to read the entire book and that the beginning did not matter. Personally, I am a reader that is all about how a book ends.
The story line was really good. I did however feel that I would have liked to see more from the main characters when they interacted. I just felt as if there wasn't enough emotion. Kara tended to doubt herself a little too much for my taste. I am all for someone who needs reassurance but there were times I found myself want to slap her. Now for Drew,. I was a little confused at times with him, he would be the sweetest man around, but it was like a switch would go off, and he was suddenly Mr. controlling and I am not sure how I feel about it still after finishing the book.
I will admit, I grew to like the characters. I do wish there was a little more passion and fire between the two because you could certainly feel it when they were around each other.
Towards the end of the book when a little drama came in, I found myself becoming more wrapped in the book and wanting to know what was going to happen next. I was slowly beginning to feel for the characters. I really did like this book, just think it needed a little more something to it. I will admit, I do plan to read book two. I must know what is going to happen between Drew and Kara especially with all that has happened in the end. I hope that the connection between the characters will spark and become everything that I know they are possible for.
I give this book 3.5 Stars!
