The plot had a lot of promise. Unfortunately the writing was so poor, I couldn't connect with any of the characters. All the major emotional sections of the story felt as though I were reading them thrice removed from the action (all telling, almost no showing). Until almost the end, the main characters exhibited the emotional maturity of 12-year-olds, which also contributed to the lack of connection. The detachment was so bad, I couldn't even get mad at the jerk hero or the spineless heroine. I gave it 1.5 stars because of the plot that could have been highly interesting in the hands of a more skilled writer.

I really enjoyed the journey in this book. Both main characters were engaging and I loved the twists and turns the story took. There is alot more to this book than the title or synopsis would lead you to believe.
