Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
Where to begin with this review.. So, I really wanted to enjoy this book. Its blurb promised to be a great read, intriguing, and a little feisty. Sadly, I really disliked the main character of the story for the first half of the book, which made it really hard to enjoy the story. The way that she talked, portrayed herself, etc. really just grated on my last nerve. I really had some high hopes for her growing into a less annoying character as I read, and I was absolutely rewarded the more that I read the story, the much more likable of a character she became.
The male lead character is absolutely loveable but infuriating at the same time. He is a hard headed character that seems to know all, and doesn’t like to listen to his heart. He has a history that seems to float around him consistently that he doesn’t seem to be able to let go.
The writing style in this story is good. It was easy to read, while at times, maybe needed a little more attention to formatting the paragraphs. I think just a little more attention would help it flow just a little better. It wasn’t anything major but enough to catch my eye.
Overall,it was a decent story. It wasn’t written horrible, it wasn’t lacking any important details or descriptions. It flowed well for the most part. This is just part one of several novella’s and definitely leaves you wanting book 2! It was a pretty fun read.
