*I received a copy of this ebook through NetGalley in return for an honest review*
It is not often that I DNF a book, and sadly this is one of them. As a teenage love story, it was highly unoriginal and drab. I felt like there was potential for there to be this amazing redemption of the main character, Tyson, but I honestly couldn’t get through half of the book. You have a boy from the wrong side of the tracks submerged into a rich girl’s family. He has a haunted past that he can’t let go of, while she practically eats diamonds for breakfast. The scenario is one that I’ve read a hundred times over, but better written ones.
The only thing that I appreciated in this story, really the reason I picked it up, was the promise of diversity. But it wasn’t enough to keep me wanting to read.
Would I recommend:
No. This book just wasn’t for me. I was looking for something different, and all I got was the same story I’ve already read, just with worse characters.
