P.S. This book does not have a cliffhanger ending, it wraps up as a full story quite nicely
The plot and subplots were all over the place as well. He was tricking her. She was tricking him. No wait he is tricking her again. Parents get involved in the trickery with their own motives and history. I gave up at 90% because I just did not care anymore how it ended. I liked the story of how the hero and heroine how they previously met (even though some of it was weird as well including the throwing up. ) Also I liked that it was a KU book.
The young adult portion . . .
Because the characters reminded me more of high school kids and not grown adults.
Vapor - The male H is still being controlled by his father and basically living under his father's thumb. He reminded me of a boy trying to break free from his controlling parent and find his own way, not of a twenty-six year old man.
Ides - The female H was more believable as someone around college freshman age, which she is somewhat closer to at twenty-four. But there were a few things with her character that seemed a little contradicting. Like why an inventor genius germaphobe like her wouldn't invent some kind of decontaminator for her germ problem, was beyond me. Instead she just invents a moisturizing hand sanitizer? Umm, okay then.
Also, some rude name calling with fat references was another reason why these characters seemed immature to me.
The contemporary and sci-fi portion . . .
The slang and crude language did give the book an urban type of feel, but it was more contemporary because the book seems to take place in our own current times. The few futuristic items of technology in the book were the only parts that could be considered science fiction.
The erotica portion . . .
Lots of sex, dirty talk, and the characters having conversations during sex. Most of it was pretty hot. Some of it was just plain weird. Other parts were like Really?!? You're having this conversation now? Definitely variety & weirdness going on with the sex scenes.
The story . . .
Even though I have a love/hate relationship with this book, the story was interesting up to about the first 200 pages or so. After that, I was just ready for the book to be over. I kept waiting for some kind of resolution and for them to get their act together, but it never came. A lot of issues went unresolved or just kind of given a quick little wrap-up.
** Start of Spoiler **
Then all the talk about having kids while they're supposedly on the run & hiding out from who knows what this time around. I was like Really? Kids?. I think this couple would be in my top five for most dysfunctional fictional characters that should never ever breed.
The ending reminded me of those cheezy teen pop movies where the Prom King and Queen gets crowned & then gives a speech about their undying love in front of the whole school. Yes, it was that kind of ending.
** End of Spoiler **
The characters . . .
Despite all their flaws, I found the characters very intriguing. Maybe I liked them more than I should have because of all their flaws. I don't know, but they were fun to read about. Vapor was crazy, obsessive, reckless, and sexy. Ides was crazy, weird, stupid, and sexy. Call them whatever you want, but boring they were definitely not.
The book also has a few hot guys to choose from. Team Riot! Poor guy was badly treated through out most of the book though. I hope to see a HEA for him in the next book (if the author does make this a series).
Overall . . .
The book is interesting, creative, and worth reading. If you're willing to overlook the issues I mentioned above.
I think this author will only improve and get better with time and experience. I will look out for future works by her.
