At twenty-eight, Matt Sky has the perfect life. He has a beautiful girlfriend, a massive inheritance, and four national bestsellers — all penned under his airtight alias, M. Pierce.

At twenty-seven, Hannah Catalano is a train wreck. Her boyfriend is a deadbeat and her job is abysmal.

Matt and Hannah meet online as writing partners. Their relationship is safe, anonymous, and innocent…

Until Matt sees a picture of Hannah. Hannah’s picture sparks an attraction Matt is powerless to ignore. When circumstance brings Matt and Hannah together, the strangers begin a love story that’s passionate, poignant, unforgettable, and unstoppable.

My Review

This book was so not for me. Why does this always happen to me? I see a high average rating on Goodreads, I read some great reviews from trusted bloggers, I get super excited about a book, and then I end up disliking it. Why do I never love the books that everyone else seems to love?

I disliked a lot of aspects of this book. Really, the only thing that didn’t bug me was the writing. I thought the characters were mediocre at best (and not very likable), the story was weak and drove me crazy (not in a good way), there was nothing overly unique about it, and I found myself bored throughout.

Also, considering this is book is of the Romance genre, I was very disappointed by the actual romance. It didn’t feel realistic to me and I just didn’t feel the connection between the two characters.

Best Aspect: Writing
Worst Aspect: Captivity/Romance

2 stars
