REVIEW:

I was really excited to read this book. Unfortunately I was disappointed. I think that the concept is really interesting, but the story just fell flat for me. This book is not very long and the ending just stops the book in its tracks. You know there will be more to come. It just wasn’t as clean of an ending even when you know there will be a sequel as I like. The club owner really bothered me. He would be a complete jerk and then really nice. Then a complete jerk again, then really nice again. It would go back and forth. He should have either been given one nice moment, been an jerk the entire time or be nice the whole time. It was giving me whiplash. The attraction between the two didn’t make a lot of sense. There didn’t seem to be a climax.

I didn’t get the relationship between the main character and her mom at all. It was the more annoying parts of the book. I am assuming that it is going somewhere, but as of now I don’t know where and didn’t like it.

There were some things I did like. I liked that the lifestyle of the main character seemed realistic. There was a lot of discussion about drugs which I admired the writer for putting so much of that conversation into her book. Addiction is a serious issue and there was a understanding of it in this book.
