The most annoying main characters ever

This is my first review on audible but I felt it necessary to warn anyone thinking of listening to this. The female protagonist is the most annoying, selfish, childish character ever written. She seems confused the ENTIRE book and her inability to communicate left me yelling at my car stereo as I listened. She seems to be throwing a prolonged tantrum the whole book. The male lead is not much better, though after the first couple chapters I began siding with the poor emotionally stunted and communicatively challenged sod. The performance is alright but I find that Kelk writes her female leads as mostly confused, self pitying and self involved for the majority of the book and then evolving into outright selfishness in the finale, all the while expecting the guy they've been stringing along to be there for them while they "figure themselves out". I'm all about being your own person but I've never understood the notion of a.) not being able to do that in a healthy relationship or b.) doing that at the expense of your significant other's feelings. You're perfectly capable of finding yourself without making someone wait for you to do so.

So. Much. Whining.

The characters were so whiny and failed to actually grow a spine and communicate with each other. I quit by the third chapter because I just couldn’t.
