The cover is orgasmic
Do I need to explain myself? I think not, the cover speaks for itself.
Definitely one of those guilty pleasures you cannot miss
We all have those books we read for the sake of it and kind of don’t share it, this was it. I was surprised to how much I enjoyed it. It was fast paced with some great characters. I can definitely see myself reading the future books.
The unusual love triangle
*groans hearing love triangle* I know they’re not the best but this one was like none I’ve read before (still debating on whether it’s a good thing or not). I’ll be honest I could not find myself to invest nor support anyone in it. Fair warning there is an incest-like relationship in the midst.
There are 5 POV
It’s not easy handling different POV, however, McGee did quite a good wonderful job with it. We were able to see the drastic lives of all the characters and it was especially fun watching them all entwine.
The cliffhanger ending
As you can guess, this book does end with quite a cliff hanger. I’m not gonna lie the end made it even more appealing. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for the next book.
