So I’m going to be brutally honest here, as I think all reviews should be that way…

I couldn’t connect with this story.

As much as I LOVE A.M. Madden’s books, and I was highly anticipating this sexy new Lair’s story, I just had a hard time fully enjoying this book. There were a couple things that just didn’t sit well with me, but the major factor was that I was completely losing interest in the first 40-45% of the book. I found it to be slow moving and had no real focal point to where the story was headed.

Yes, there were aspects of the story that I very much enjoyed. The humorous dialogue and the mysterious “Apple” that was featured. But that was about it. The sudden “switch” that flipped for Vaughn didn’t seem that believable to me, and it seemed like the romantic relationship between him and Haven lacked a building of desire on his end.

I guess I’m just a little let down by this story. Okay, maybe more than just a little. And maybe the anticipation and excitement was built up on my part as I LOVE the author’s Back-Up Series (#LairLover for life!), and was hoping for this book to be more along those lines. But I will say that just because I didn’t care for this story, it will in no way deter me from reading the author’s future novels. This one was just a miss for me, unfortunately.
