Pretty good book
Liked it, and left me wondering what would be happening on the next book.
So irritating! I couldn't even finish the book. The girl is so weak and annoying...absolutely no backbone. None of the characters were interesting. Don't waste your time. There are plenty other good books in this genre, so skip this book/series.
Writing: OK. Relationship: Unhealthy AF
I want to start this on a positive note. And for that I will say that the writing in this story is not bad. It feels a little rushed and unnatural at times, but all in all the writing is pretty good.
That being said... No. Just no. Maybe I am misjudging and this series will do a complete 180 in the next book, but I will not be reading any more of them to find out.
Levi and Allie should not end up together. I thought he seemed overly cocky from the very beginning (which is common in this type of book) but, unlike the typical male lead, the more I read about him, the more he made me uncomfortable. He is creepy. He is possessive. He is controlling. He is just plain wrong on so many levels. And she needs to grow a backbone because, although the book tries to make her seem spunky, she is anything but and is willing to let these people talk her into just about anything...
For one thing, she did not even accept the ring as a normal present. He had to physically grab her hand and shove it on her finger (which is creepy in and of itself). But he actually tricked someone into bonding with him for life. That’s messed up. There is quite literally no scenario that could ever explain that and make it okay. And, as if that weren’t enough, he’s gonna force her to act like she AGREED TO THIS?!?! And she is just gonna go along with this?!?! She should be screaming. She should be trying to strangle him. Or throw things at him. She should not be just quietly sulking at the “engagement party” WHEN SHE NEVER AGREED TO ANY OF THIS.
All in all. Not a fan. If I were in her shoes I would chop my finger off, leave the ring behind, and leave town for good.
