In this case, there were no one or two star reviews. So I stupidly purchased the book. Don't get me wrong, if I would have stuck through to the ending, I may have rated it better, endings always make the book worth it. In this case, I just couldn't.
The first half of the book was decent. There was enough mystery and build up surrounding Syd and Drew that it kept me engaged, I couldn't put it down. Then it started to get obnoxious. There were far too many descriptions of scenes that didn't matter. I understand that the writer had to build the scene, but to me it was excessive. Just get to the point already. Not to mention for a while there I kind of wanted to tell Syd she was an idiot. Your boyfriend is FILTHY RICH and you keep saying that. Most rich people...well at least THAT rich are in the spotlight, the place you don't want to be!
The steamy scenes didn't get my heart racing, and part of this is because I have become a snob regarding steamy romance novels. I hate to admit it, but I have read one too many, and this was at the lower end of the spectrum for me.
At the end of the day I threw my Kindle on the couch and marked this book as another loss. Some might find it entertaining, but I did not.
Spoiler: Possibly the most hideous moment that made me want to break things when I read it - the main characters have unprotected sex, and somehow the girl thinks she won't get pregnant because she runs a lot (WTF?). She talks about all these one night stands she has, and yet she's somehow not on birth control, and it apparently doesn't occur to her that the morning after pill is available over the counter at every drug store in America. --> Contrived, stupid behavior to arrive at the ridiculously obvious plot point that follows.
Damaged girl - check

Celebrity scandal - check
Ripped abs and lots of hotness in and out of bed - check, check, check
There was angst and confusion and love and sex and anger and confusion and betrayal and sex. So a romance novel. And a good romance novel. Oddly what makes it different was what kind of bothered me.
Instead of a heroine who is from the wrong side of the tracks or a mousy girl, Sydney is gorgeous, rich and has been afforded all of life's luxuries. With the horrible downside that she has to hide who she is, cannot trust anyone, has only one friend and a series of one night stands. While interesting and I did mostly root for her sometimes I got a little tired of the woe is me act from someone who has always had it all. I get the negative side of fame, but it seems like she went to extremes.
Overall, I did enjoy the love story and I did like to see her search to learn to trust and maybe even love.
There wasn't a foundation laid for them to even be close to being believable as a couple who are in love. But the worst of it all to me, ok maybe not the worse but to prove how STUPID and immature Sydney was. She didn't know how long you're suppose to wait after sex to take a pregnant test AND SHE WASNT A VIRGIN! Like what? If you had time to read the box to find out what a positive test looks like, then it also says the timeframe of when you're suppose to take it. She was all like "I took the test a week too early" smh ✋👋 no one doesn't have time for this insult upon an adult's intelligence. Sydney was stupid, the book and writing was horrible, and you should save yourself time and money by skipping this mess altogether. I guess I am the pariah but I wanted to give a honest opinion about a horrible book to save you time and money. Even though I hated this book my opinions are based upon the book ONLY and NOT the author as a whole even though I won't be reading any of her other books.
