My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book took me a month to read. I really enjoyed that the book was written from the perspective of the main character and I found it really interesting to see what was going on in his mind while he was coming up with the things he came up with as well as his reasons behind what he was doing…. sometimes he even convinced me that it was the only way to resolve the problem…. until reason took over.

Joe is a self-centered person who will stop at nothing to get the woman he set his eyes on…. Do I think this is a romance as some have filed it? Absolutely not. This book will make you cringe at times both due to some sexual content and also due to the reasons for the actions Joe chooses to take. However, don’t think that it’s only Joe…. there are others who are less then perfect.

I thought the book was very well written and the plot was captivating. However, where the book falls short is that I think it towards the middl of the book it just dragged. The reason for it taking me a whole month to read it. I just didn’t want to pick it up and read the same thing again. They’re on, they’re off…. it became a boring rollercoaster.

Having said all that, I would recommend this book to anyone who does not mind mild sexuality and some violence. I will be picking up her next book but I think I will have to give myself a short break from it so it sinks in a bit more.

Hope this was helpful.
