This was a super decent read.
The premise of the story was good and some of the characters – especially Millie and Beau and Olive’s bosses – were really fun and engaging.
I also just LOVE stories where someone has COMPLETELY fucked up and you know there is massive potential for angst and groveling.
I used to HATE angst.
But, as my reading tastes have undergone a bit of a…shift…
…I now love angst.
I suddenly find myself gobbling it up like a fat kid with a Halloween candy haul.
All that said, I think other people will probably enjoy this a lot more than I did.
Even though the writing was fine (minus a few typos, etc. here and there, which I don’t really care about), the story was decent, and the side characters were great…I had trouble feeling the connection between Olive and Sebastian.
I really liked Sebastian, but he and Olive were just boring to me, quite frankly.
I didn’t see what made Olive so special. She was very…bland. Millie overshadowed her at every turn for me.
Like I said though, I think a lot of people won’t have this problem and will really enjoy this book as a whole. Which isn’t to say that I didn’t enjoy it; in fact, I am almost done with book two.
