I received an e-copy of this book from the author and I voluntarily reviewed it. Thank you, Amanda Siegrist!
I, unfortunately, was not able to get into this book. The story did move along fluidly, and at a good pace, but I just wasn't able to connect with Deja and Emmett. I think it may be because my overall impression of Deja is that she is "cold". Not all the time, but when she attempts to besassy, she just ends up being bitchy.
In addition, the story appeared monotonous to me.Perhaps due to the fact that I wasn't pulled into the story would explain my perception of the plot. Nothing really shocked me, and it may have been because the author - who is very good at foreshadowing - foreshadowed too much. As a reader, you could tell when something was going to happen, and when It happened, you would say: "Well okay".
However, I do like the themes present in this book, of not judging a book by its cover, giving people chances to prove themselves. I think that it is an important message that was projected in an efficient way.
