My Review
Okay, so this book is not narrated by Kate. Andrea leads the charge, which is why this novel is numbered 5.5. It is a full novel and not a novella.
I had some basic gripes. The first is I get so sick of the story line where a guy moves on and has another girl and the girl he left sits back and pines over him until he comes back. It’s just not realistic to me or maybe my personality says that weak. Pick up your shoulders and go find someone else to parade in front of him. Make him jealous, not sit back and whine about him moving on.
I won’t say that totally happened in this story, but you’ll have to read to see what I mean.
The other problem with this one was the believability. I read this so long ago, I don’t remember all the details, but my notes say, that the god storyline didn’t fly. The fact that I don’t remember this one that well says a lot. The action was good, but it’s not quite a 5 star because the story as a whole wasn’t memorable.
My book boyfriend is Raphael.
