♫My Pick for Book Theme Song: Say Something (I'm Giving Up On You) by A Great Big World w/Christina Aguilera --Seriously, sometimes, I was just like say something to him already…
The Feels: 4.7/5
Backdrop (World Building): 4.5/5
Book Cover: 3/5
Ending: 3.8/5. Cliffhanger: There is an ending…but there is two more books…
Will I continue this series? I may prefer to think this is their ending…
First the bad: While I dislike this type of story; where the story is strung out over three books. I could have done two books with no qualms, but three is too much. I also could have done without so much of the over-the-top, I-want-to-be-trendy dialogue. A certain amount is fine, but this just seemed like it was trying to hard.
Then the good: I have to say the realness of these characters really got me, they are fucked up, flawed and genuinely real. I really connected with them. I loved the setting of Australia and how Bran is always teaching Talia about the culture and different words they use there. It really added to whole adventure.
Sex Factor: Yes, super hot and it's fairly explicit.
