I won this from AngieW *mumble mumble* months back. So it's fitting that it's my TBR Challenge review this month. Sorta.
I'm not sure I like the lead character, Lindsay. Somehow, she didn't work for me. It's nothing to do with the fact that it's a first person romance–I've read others and liked them.
I felt as though I was being dragged from end of the emotional spectrum, to the other side, and back again without any logic to it.
And the name of the hero, Exavier, got to me. I kept thinking about Professor Xavier and the X-Men. Tasty enough, but somehow he didn't quite live up to the whole prince of darkness thing.
Basically, for me, the book started out really well, went to pieces in the middle, and somehow Mandy managed to glue the pieces back together for the ending. A coherent ending that makes me glad that I didn't quit in the middle.
I was going to stop there, but then, it occurs to me that I'd really like to read Lindsay's parents story.
Oh and I've read another Roth book, but I can't remember it, or I'd recommend it to you.
