My rating may be a little too critical considering I have read other books by Stephanie Bond and loved them. This book is like a bad crossover episode of MTV’s Daria meets HBO’s Sex and the City with none of the female characters being very likable. Honestly the author did not due any of the women justice in the likability department in this book. The romance is debatable in this book and the mystery(ies) are all over the map.
Roxann and Joe have no chemistry and she is basically a complete bitch to him throughout the entire book while Angora and Mike were too obvious that I never really got invested in it. Honestly my biggest issue with this book is the use of the effect of years of mental abuse on a character as the source of most of the humor in this book.
The narrator was okay. She gave the big burly cop Joe the voice of a nasally teenage boy and even though Roxann and Angora had different speaking voices – the narrator didn’t let the characters keep the voices for their inner monologues. She instead used her narrator’s voice for those which became confusing.
I know this a quick sloppy review, but I got nothing left to really say.
I was surprised to enjoy this novel so much. I like the author but had only read her body moving series. This was refreshing! Great plot, twist and turns to the very end and a sweet romance too. Must read.
