It's a predictable story that reads quickly. Like a B-movie you can't not watch, this is a story you should read. The HEA will leave you smiling.
So, here is the basis for my two-star rating:
The chemistry between Aubrey and Liam was superficial. The story felt rushed, especially the end. The end was disjointed, and I felt like surely I had accidentally skipped past several chapters somehow. Unfortunately, that was not the case. I guess that is the crux of my disappointment; I actually wanted more. I really wanted to like the book. The potential was there, and with more detailing and development, my review would be very different (except for the one major inaccuracy that really bothered me - see below).
I didn't completely dislike the protagonists, hence the two stars, instead of one. Liam was a jerk several times in the beginning, and Aubrey let him get by with it too much for my preference. I don't like female characters that overdo the attitude to the point of bitchiness, but Aubrey could have been a little bit stronger. Her inner monologue and feelings often came across as trite. I did love Sophie and Roxanne. Roxanne made me laugh out loud, literally. I admit I swooned some once Liam's attitude levelled out (and I have a weakness for dark hair and green eyes - the book cover is HOT!). Full disclosure ... I like strong (and sometimes bossy and domineering) male characters. However, for me, developed characterization is important to pull it off and make it sexy instead of offensive.
I enjoyed disliking the antagonists in the story. The author did a good job of pulling me in for that aspect of the story.
*Slight spoiler (and note to author)* Custody hearings are not jury trials (except in Texas). That was a major plot misstep. No matter what liberties fiction authors can take with facts, this was a ridiculously false plot point. It also rendered the last 1/3 of the book pointless. I kept going back thinking I missed a reason for the need for a jury. I was willing to accept the quick relationship development of Aubrey and Liam, but the aforementioned weakness of the plot - no. That was bad. Hence two stars instead of three.
This story actually reminded me of a mediocre fanfiction romance, which I could read for free. I suppose I have done my due diligence to give possible readers some things to think about before buying the book.
The real gem here was the 2nd novel Punished (that was included) was incredible!! I reread it for the 2nd time...and enjoyed it just as much as the first time. It was one of the most erotic, down and dirty, panty melting books I have read lately!! I just want to know when does Scarlett or Olivia get there own stories!!!
