This book was all telling--no showing. Very few details, very little emotion and very very little plot development. Rosalie's home-life with her mother and stepfather could be fleshed out SO much more. But they mention how horrible it is...then that's it. Seriously, that's it. They hint about what happened to her as a child, but never develop it. And her mother and stepfather are caricatures, completely one-dimensional, no development...they are there to be the villains (who are only in maybe 5-10 percent of the plot).
There are absolutely no transitions either. I was beyond frustrated about this while reading! Shane, the hot misunderstood bad boy, is at one minute mean to Rosalie (the not-quite virginal good girl heroine) the very next minute she trusts him with a pretty serious problem. No transition, I remember squinting at the book wondering if I was missing a big chunk of the novel. Perhaps my kindle didn't download it completely, but in chunks? But alas, no. Just no development. I would be reading it, then suddenly it would say 4 years later...4 years??? There was SO much that could have, should have, happened in those 4 years. Nothing is mentioned. Everything is glossed over--and I mean everything. Shane's and Rosalie's relationship, Rosalie's awful home-life (which is fixed after a couple chapters in the beginning...such a let down when it comes to novels), how they're separated, then how they're back together. No details. No development. Nothing. All glossed over plot.
This novel took me only an hour to finish. I'm a fast reader--but not that fast. I'm pretty sure I didn't skim either...granted there was nothing to take in, nothing to require thoughts because everything was glossed over (I know I'm being repetitive about everything being glossed over--but I can't stress enough how frustrating the lack of detail and development was. I'm just trying to warn readers the best way I know how).
The only reason I gave this two stars, instead of one, is because there was a lot of potential (again, I'm using this word WAY too often!). This could have been an amazing angsty new adult novel. Instead, this was a shell of a book. I would not recommend this, especially if one needs to pay to read it.
My rating: 4.5 stars ****

I love the step brother concept and really wanted to like this book, but it ended up being too simple for me.Read more
