Why did I want to read this book?
Call me a bit vain (lol) but I initially wanted to read this book because the main character’s name is the same as mine, and I never encounter books that have characters with my name. And then there’s the very interesting set-up that promises lots of fast-paced action, crime mystery, and of course romance.
Why I DNF this book?
I tried. I really tried. I even re-read some of the earlier parts thinking maybe my mind was skipping through so much of what the story was trying to tell. But unfortunately, my love affair with the book ended at 41%.
I felt zero connection with the characters and this I would point to the lack of background or in-depth monologue or dialogue of the characters. We get a dual POV but Camille and Drago remained unknown to me even while they’re thinking their thoughts and all that. The flow of the story was also a little erratic that it was difficult for me to be emotionally invested in what happens next, both to the story and to the characters.
My over-all take on it?
I felt like there was very good potential for the story. The set-up is obviously intriguing and it really makes you want to read the story. It might be just me when it comes to the story not working for me. But there’s still that chance that some of you might enjoy this one.
