The only reason I didn't cancel my purchase was because only verified purchasers can write reviews. And I feel strongly about this book. The positives:
* The writing style is very good (it flows, character development is good)
* There weren't any annoying typos, which can yank you right out of the story when there are enough of them
* There was practically no plot. Boy meets girl, girl's fiance dies under slightly suspicious circumstances, and then there was no further tension until more than halfway through the book. Then there's a bit more plot (not much). I kept hoping there would be SOMETHING. Something involving the vintage t-shirts, maybe? The sister Bell? Something beyond the yadda yadda about the evolving love interest. Because several hundred pages of two people reconnecting after five years and falling in love, knit together by sex scenes, no matter how hot, does not a book make. Plus, the journal's 'here's how we're going to let the reader in on what's really going on' device towards the end was cheesy-easy.
* This story chopped off in the middle, making it crystal clear that you have to pay for the sequel to find out what happens to the characters. Online writers these days seem to be trending toward not wrapping up their stories, as a 'hook' to get you to buy the sequel. A quality author doesn't do this. There should be some kind of decent ending. Don't fall for it. This wasn't written well enough to be worth it, and I'm opposed on principle.
