“The a magical world that closely connects to the botanical world was intriguing.  However, I just could not get into this book”.
~ Under the Covers

DNF is a rare occurrence for me so having to stop reading this book was tough.  These Rebel Waves’ storyline has potential.  The a magical world that closely connects to the botanical world was intriguing.  However, I just could not get into this book.  Not so much due to the storyline, but how it was told. The third person POV approach killed me. I kept wanting to know more about the characters, but I felt like I could not get close enough to know them.  There was no connection nor did I feel compelled to get to know them. I had to cut my losses at 15%.

About Sara Raasch

Sara Raasch has known she was destined for bookish things since the age of five, when her friends had a lemonade stand and she tagged along to sell her hand-drawn picture books too. Not much has changed since then — her friends still cock concerned eyebrows when she attempts to draw things and her enthusiasm for the written word still drives her to extreme measures. Her debut YA fantasy, SNOW LIKE ASHES, the first in a trilogy, came out October 14, 2014 from Balzer + Bray. It does not feature her hand-drawn pictures.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.

It’s so disappointing when a storyline with potential just misses the mark.

oh sorry to hear this one didn’t work for you! Third person POV but Deep is my fav. When it is Omniscient third person POV it is hard for me to connect with the characters,
