Well, it was okay. As I'm typing this, I'm doing my best to think of words that could best describe me while reading this - well first, I was excited then curios, irritated, irritated, a down swooned moment then flat line until the end.
It started good for me. I was honestly excited for this one since Monica Murphy is one of my most awaited and favorite author so grabbing this next new series' of hers was a definite excitement for me. Another thing that gets me excited about it is the plot that revolved around 'my-best friend's-sister'
kind of drift. Next to 'friends turn into lovers' and
I have a weird a thing for stories that goes along the line of that, so you really cant blame me if I get all excited right? So that feeling went on until I came to the point where it feels like I’ve read the same entire thing or banter on the other contemporary books with the same storyline, but I was still hanging on that maybe something new would still come out – but no nada. It was too predictable for my taste and I can’t help but feel like the story was a complete flat land with no bumps - high or low. Simply a flat deserted place.
Ivy and Archer are okay characters but unfortunately I can't find this connection with them. Their stubbornness and epic miscommunications that goes back and forth was tiring and just too much. But one thing I know for sure is that these two have an undeniable chemistry – chemistry that you would really feel sizzling as a reader.
Crave has this spark that most readers look for and their is definitely fire what with the characters sizzling chemistry but it lacks the fireworks that I was expecting when the end came – also like I was left midair without a parachute flopping down the land face front. Well, at least the ending was happy(which is already given from the start)
. The chemistry got me but the characters' individual personalities and the whole story didn't quite make it up to me.
