“…this author’s style is just not for me.”
~ Under the Covers
I’m going to be honest here. This was a total cover buy for me. Well, not JUST that. I also thought that I really wanted a cool series about the Four Horsemen so I went into this book really excited, even if I’ve never heard of this author before. And at first, I thought this had potential, but I quickly figured out it wasn’t for me.
I had some problems with the story. First of all, it was very simple. In the sense that there is hardly any world building. There isn’t much happening! And since I don’t want to put spoilers, I don’t want to elaborate on that, but it felt very boring and repetitive and it didn’t really expand on what was going on in the world around the main characters. So this was my first issue, but the main one.
Here comes the one I just couldn’t get past. The characters. And when I say that, I mean the main characters because there aren’t that many more. The heroine is so immature and annoying I couldn’t stand to be in her head. I’m not sure if she was meant to be funny and snarky but boy did that not work for me. She made me stabby 95% of the time.
Then there’s the romance. I really didn’t get it. It was a mix of insta-love and Stockholm syndrome, I guess? I just couldn’t connect with it and in the end I didn’t care if they ended up together or not. I don’t think I’ll be continuing on with this series. I guess this author’s style is just not for me.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
