I have to say that I really tried to like this book. Being a Michigan girl, I always get excited when a book takes place in my State so knowing the cities the author talked about was a plus. The sex/romantic scenes were hot for casual sex. To be fair this is what this was supposed to be but turned into more. I could just never buy the chemistry between Zee and Tamara. Most romances you read start off with it’s just casual and you can see it transform into more and I just never got that feeling in this one.
Another thing that disappointed me was that Tamara was cheating. Regardless of if her boyfriend she suspected and then confirms is doing the same. I just think a lady should be more classy than that.
I also had a problem with both of their family dynamics. To start with Zee who’s dad is a crime boss… he goes for years under his dads nose without being caught.. I find hard to believe. And once he gets away from him for good – it was just too easy for my liking. Then there is Tamara who is being controlled by her family. To be put through the crap at work in a company her father owns just didn’t seem right. I can see with starting at the bottom and working your way up the ladder but to have a boss that took advantage, whether she is the boss’s daughter or not – shouldn’t fly.
Things I liked. Tamara finally got a backbone and stood up to her parents. I liked Zee’s drive to be better and help people and his community. I liked that Tamara wanted that also. I liked Zee’s friends even though I wish I could have seen more of them.
I think this book has a good start at the bones of it but the meat needs to be spiced up some, if that makes sense? Working on the chemistry in transition better would be great.
My last rant is the ebook price for this book. $7.99 is too huge of a price to ask someone to pay. In no way am I trying to say that an author isn’t worth it with all the work they put into writing but that is way too much on the pocket book.
Now as far as my like/dislike for Tamara, she's outright cheating on her boyfriend, they live in different states but they do see each other often and she knows that marriage is probably in their near future yet she gets involved with Zee without breaking off her relationship first. Then she feels bad about it for maybe a second or two and decides she doesn't care because she wants to be with Zee. Fine then please break off your relationship with your current boyfriend, and hey maybe let Zee know what he's getting into before you go any further.
OK, enough of my ranting. There were some things that I did enjoy about this book, first and foremost is the group of friends that Zee has, they are more like his family than his blood relatives and they have a great bond that I would like to find out more about. I am going to continue with the series and I look forward to reading Gideon's story because I am sure that man has one heck of a past and I know that when he and Zoe finally get together it will be unbelievable!
