This book was a bit rough for me at the start. When a book starts off slowly I tend to get worried.
In this case I think it was slow burning item and while I didn’t enjoy the beginning but it really started to go up with each chapter. I just found that it was a good book that had characters that I really began to like
The story was entertaining but I think that this book really wasn’t for me even though it was a good story with good characters.
