The story is sweet but the characters and storyline are not solidly consistent. Writing is a little weak. For the first half of the book, Cassie is not very likeable. She is rude, overly dramatic and has the emotional intelligence of a child. Her past is rough but the way she acts, you would think she was raised in a closet by Russian mobsters. The obsession she has for having 'fun' is silly and immature. Big deal - we all have serious moments and life is hard at times. We don't run around like a tragic drama queen. Ethan is perceived as a little weak and non-alpha, much of the time. He's a good man but he doesn't come across as a firefighter. The back and forth thing between them initially seemed forced. The lawmakers in the town sound so incompetent, the make Gotham City seem capable. After a mysterious fire, there is no police presence or an arson investigation filed. Ethan turns to his cold mother for help. You would think he'd have a network of arson investigators and law enforcement friends who could help him protect the girls. The narrator is okay. Doesn't help much with the stilted writing. Still listening to the book. Just okay. Maybe the end will save it.

I loved this story. The author was very expressive and I loved how the characters developed. Sarah really brought these characters to life through her narration. She read with such emotions, I was in tears by the end. lots of interesting turns and twists throughout.
