4.5 – 5 Stars
This is one of those books where my tendency toward verbal diarrhea prohibits me from wanting to say much about it…because I know I will end up unintentionally including spoilers. So I’m not going to talk about the story line.
I decided to start this book last night at 9pm, when I SHOULD have been getting ready for bed (don’t judge, you’d go to bed at 9 too if you had to get up at 0430 every morning!).
We’ve all done it. We tell ourselves we will “only read a couple chapters” and then we end up staying up reading all night. And paying for it the next day.
Well luckily I am a fast reader and this book is a fast read so at least I was done by 11pm – but anyway – it always says something about how good a book is based on how long it takes you to read it, how many times you put it down (time & life permitting), or in this case, when you devour the entire thing in one sitting. With no bathroom breaks.
Emma Chase’s witty conversationalist writing style is so cool. And the way she laid this one out made the “twists” more suspenseful – you know when you are reading and you have a nervous knot in your stomach as the story unfolds that you both hate and LOVE at the same time. This book had that for me in spades.
Looking forward for more from Emma Chase!
