I was weirded out by the title of this novel and was interested so I had grabbed it so fast. I began to read, and this was extremely fast paced. I read this within 4 hours of checking this novel from the library. I hadn’t binge read a book since middle school. This book was a page turner and kept me on my toes. I never had thought that I would ever pick up a book that made me feel exhilarated as this one did. I regret not taking my time with this novel, but at the same time I was glad I found this novel. The author knows how to keep a reader hooked onto the story. This offered drama and romance as well as some comedy. I plan to read more of her novels in the foreseeable future.
