this is the last book i read before starting my new (and quite hectic job).the book started good, then got annoying and boring (snooze-worthy) midway that i stopped reading and kept putting it off for a few days until last night while trying to sleep out the first day jitters lol. anyway, turns out it got better towards the end when the revelations and drama came out. looking forward to the 2nd book as the end left us quite hanging.
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I got this book years ago. Can’t remember if its off my 1st paycheck or i scrapped some of my college allowance money (both isn’t much to begin with) to get this. And i clearly remember being utterly confused and disappointed; and this is coming off from an easily pleased reader. I couldn’t even remember the story! The only thing stopping me from giving it a 1 star is because i want to salvage what little dignity i could off the $9 i spent on the paperback.
i am a petty and easily pleased reader and this book is exactly the kind of reading i enjoy. simple yet conflicted characters and plot with an annoying yet fun-to-poke with antagonist.
i enjoyed it so much that i cannot wait to finish work so i can get back to reading. except for the parts where it got too detailed that i had to skip just so i can get back to the romance plot between lexi and vince.
it’s a fairly tale, too good to be true and yet can certainly happen in real life.i like it a lot.
gave a rating of 3 and that was being generous.
i acknowledge that this is a light read; a generally common premise; guy is rich but not an a-hole, girl is independent but with a secret. it put me on a general feeling of excitement and then it came plunging down to the last few pages. this is it? i was expecting an in depth tackling of her supposed situation back in NY but all i got was a very minute detail and then it was the end. there wasn’t even an attempt for retaliation from celia or from evan.
i am very easily pleased but i can’t help but be disappointed as i was expecting more and yet it felt short. i haven’t any idea if this is part of a series and whatnot but even if it was, i sort of wish it would stand on its own. this is my 1st MAYA BANKS book but i can give the others a try. hopefully, the others wouldn’t leave me hanging like what this did to me.
