But why are we missing some stars? Well, the writing leaves a lot to be desired. Russell is a southern boy with the most annoying speech. I don't know about you, but when I know a person has an accent, I tend to read their lines with an accent in my head. But that's just me. Too many "ya" and such made it hard to read his lines and get what he's saying.
Another reason? I get that someone is absolutely beautiful and perfect, but the description of Reed being beautiful and perfect every time? Maybe because Reed is beautiful and perfect. You know, since he is beautiful and perfect. See how annoying that can get?
Also, I think the description was too much of a filler. I love a good visual and some authors really need to learn how to do so. But this book had way too much of it. It made the book longer than it could have been, which annoys me.
Last but not least, I don't like weak female characters. Evie tries to be strong, but gets picked up and carried to safety way too many times. Things like that annoy me.
For $2.99, it's not a bad buy. It's really not a bad read, but beware what everyone is complaining about because it will annoy you.
ETA: I did finally trudge my way through this book, and my opinion did not improve. The introduction of yet another angel who almost immediately cares for Evie and the idea that Buns and Brownie are also angels, Russell's miraculous change...I just can't imagine reading anymore of this. I really feel like I got some sort of joke copy sent to my Kindle because so many people love it, but I just can't see it.
Pacing is everywhere. Several pages might be devoted to a field hockey game (FYI, if you're completely unfamiliar with a sport, reading a play-by-play of a game is incredibly boring). On the other hand, I feel like when she meets her new friends and love interests, I've missed something because of how close they are. Instantly. All of them. It feels like the story speeds along, then abruptly switches to slow motion. It's pages and pages of idle chatter in the cafeteria and following Evie as she gets ready for bed, then weeks are skipped because Evie was dumped.
The dialogue comes across as someone's misinformed idea of how teenagers/young college students are supposed to talk. The slang and its overuse make me cringe. If it weren't for the abuse of the word "sweetie," I wouldn't be able to tell Buns and Brownie apart. (And I can't take their characters seriously with nicknames like that.) Russell's written accent is terrible. I'm from the south, and I can assure you that we can, indeed, pronounce the word 'you.' Side note: Too much alliteration when naming characters seems lazy. Minor annoyances, yes, but incredibly avoidable ones.
As far as the love triangle and character development (if there is any), I feel a bit like I'm reading Twilight with angels. Right down to the mysterious supernatural hottie acting as if he hates the female lead, but who watches her sleep when she's unaware of his presence. Edward can't read Bella's thoughts; Reed can't use mind control on Evie. He forbids her from going places without telling him and gets incredibly angry when she does it anyway. I understand that his motives are to protect her, but they border on controlling and downright creepy at times.
Overall, I find Evie to be pretty weak. She seems driven and intelligent at first, but it doesn't last. She can't see why anyone could possibly fall for her, and after reading this book, neither can I.
