This was a disappointing read. I couldn't connect with any of the characters and the story was at times confusing.

None of the characters were fleshed out, including the narrator Jess Mackey. She wasn't relatable and I had a hard time believing her history/storyline. Devin Castile seemed more caveman than mysterious hero. I didn't think he was hot nor could I see this chemistry between Cas and Jess Mackey. He would say all there was between them was sex, they would hook up (once in a janitor closet), then he wouldn't call or talk to her for days until they would hook up again. All the while she is trying to date Mitch Maverick, convincing herself that he is safe and the safe choice and so much safer than the dangerous Castille (Yes she repeats this multiple times). Mitch doesn't care she's sleeping with Cas, he wants her too!
As for the other characters, none of their interactions with each other felt natural. One of the characters she seemed pretty close to just disappears at one point, never mentioned again.

I had a hard time getting through parts of this book, though it did start to pick up toward the end, and then I was glad to have finished it.

But I did think the cover was lovely.
