Okay but hard to finish

While the genre of this book is right up my alley (romance, independent kick butt heroine, action, fantasy), this book was not as wonderful as it could have been. I enjoyed the first book of the serious and liked this one but had difficulty finishing it, which is very rare for me. The heroine was making lots of the same mistakes as in the first book which is extremely frustrating. Also the story was extremely predictable. I do plan on finishing the series eventually so I hope the third book has better plot development and character growth.

I will note that I am in my early twenties so maybe this book would be more enjoyable to a teenager (the book’s intended audience). It’s romantic scenes are slightly more mature than what I’d expect a teenager to read but the characters’ maturity (mentally) and lack of growth are on par with that of a pre teen.

Wanted to like this series

I really liked the idea of a female character in disguise to save her life. What I couldn’t get into was the shallow love choice. I find the Damian character very weak in contrast to Alexa. The Rylan character constantly showed devotion, self denial, and willingness to put his life on the line...yet she chooses blue eyes over a man that constantly stands by her side. I just can’t get into shallow love stories, won’t be buying the the third book.
