♪♫MY PICK FOR BOOK THEME SONG♫♪
♫Right Kind of Wrong by Leann Rimes♫ --The end of this audiobook recited a list of songs that would be the soundtrack, but I'm picking this one…because it kind of fits how Shaw thinks about Rule. If only I liked this book as much as I like this song…
The Feels: 3.5/5
Backdrop (World Building): 4/5
Book Cover: 4/5
Ending: 3/5 Cliffhanger: No
Will I continue this series? Idk, I have all the books in this series on my wishlist on my library website. So, maybe…the second book is about Jet and Aiden, and they might be interesting.
This could be a case of It's not you, it's me…and maybe, I'm just feeling burned out on this type of romance right now.
This was good, just not overly memorable in a sea of New Adult. If I had read it a couple of years ago, I would probably given it 5 Stars. The characters were super likable and it's low on angst, or maybe it had angst…and I just didn't connect with it? I think that might be it. Seriously just had an a-ha moment. As for narration by Sophie Eastlake & Michael Rahhal…it was well done and I don't think I've ever heard them so they were fresh voices for me.
⇝Sex Factor⇜ I'm rather in a funk when it comes to sex scenes lately, whereas, I get really upset, if the book just has a lot of sex as plot filler. This particular book tips the scales towards too much sex, but not excessively so. They are mostly well written, though.
