OK so this book picks up kind of where the last one left off and Mac is still trying to get at her brothers killer and is now working for Barrons. She's changed from the first book in the sense that she changed her appearance and a bit of her attitude. But she is nowhere near badass yet. But it was an improvement.
Then there's the fact that Barrons is still just using her for his own purposes but won't tell tell her anything (about anything) and well... He's a total antisocial, bitter and grumpy.....JERK! Sorry.... there.... I said it. Let the hate mail flow in.
I was really annoyed at Barrons for most of this book and just because out of NOWHERE he decides that all of a sudden he wants to kiss Mac at the end of this book (and yes that was a toecurling, hot as hell kiss, that promises Barrons is a sexual God)...Well that wasn't enough for me to forget that I wanted to throttle him for far more than I wanted to jump his bones. Sometimes when a character is standoffish it's kind of hot, when Barrons makes his comments and remarks he just sounds like a jerk. Sorry to all Barrons lovers, I know I'll probably feel different when I see his sexual prowess.
Then there's Mac. Is it possible that I just don't like her that much? Well, no that's not true. I like her ok I just don't care about her one way or the other. And if I hear petunia one more time I'm going to scream!
The story was good but the pace was very slow for me. I found this book to be put-down-able because it didn't really catch my attention until almost the very end, where the world turns upside down, there's a ton of action and shit hits the fan and we are left with a brand new world to explore in the next book. Open to a whole lot of new possibilities. THIS IS EXCITING!
I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy the next book a lot more since a lot of things have changed but I feel like maybe this book was more of a getting from point A to point B in the series, and those are usually not my favorite.
NOW....PLEASE DON'T YELL AT ME!
