I’ll start with the positives (just like my mom taught me):
Now, for the not-so-stellar moments…
So, all that said, I’d still probably read the next installment of the story because even though I had some problems with the characters, the story itself was still interesting enough to hold my attention. (And I have a wicked-short attention span, folks) For a debut effort, this is fairly strong, and I have a feeling the author will only get better the more she writes.
Full disclosure: We received an ARC from the author free of charge.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
The story itself is stigma free, but a few of the characters are a little stigma-y at times.
