Loved it, lots of surprises
Where's the passion?
This was a good story but I felt no pull between the 2 main characters. Before I knew it they were declaring their love for each other. The female character really did seem kind of gross, she was constantly puking (no, she was not pregnant) as a matter of fact when it came to them finally getting together it started and ended in 2 sentences. I had to go back because I thought I missed it but the only way it was confirmed was because he asked her if it hurt. Where is the romance?
The story was more of a mystery/coming of age with a dash of romance.
I just wasn't feeling it. No passion.
I don't like how willing Emily is to being kidnapped. I found her a little pathetic and annoying.
The woman's post that said "men do not blush" is stupid. Everyone can blush even a thug.
