I just couldn’t get into this story guess it just wasn’t for me. There wasn’t much action or anything to rally pull you into the story and keep you glued to the story. I also didn’t think there was really alot of chemistry from Cedric to Adelaide. I also just found the story confusing . I just didn’t like it.
I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
