Arc provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
I saw this book on Netgalley and the cover totally drew me in. I read the synopsis and thought, 'Hmm, sounds interesting!', so of course I requested it. When I got approved to read it, I was super excited! Let's just say I was a little bit let down.
I can't even bring myself to write my own summary because this book felt so scattered and I keep getting confused trying to write one. This book follows many different characters and it's a bit hard to follow until you learn who they all are.
This story totally feels like something you would see in a soap opera. Basically, it's a bunch of crazy drama that probably wouldn't really happen in real life. People aren't who they say they are and people are getting killed.
I think it's a totally cool concept, but because it was so all over the place it's hard to remember every little thing that happened. I do think it was entertaining, though. The fact that everything was so dramatic is what kept me reading.
The characters in this book were decent, at the most. Josie and Tristan weren't my favorite, even though the story was basically centered around them. Really the only two that I liked were Alex and Monica. They were the only ones that seemed realistic to me. Everyone else kind of seemed like they were just acting in a movie or something, if that makes sense.
The reason I gave this book 3.5/5 stars is because I was entertained throughout the book. I will admit, there were some times that I was thinking, 'Okay, enough already. Can we move on?' and I just wanted to skip through those parts. Overall, it's an entertaining read if you enjoy drama and mafia-type-stuff!
(I didn't have a favorite quote from this book)
Do I recommend this book? Maybe, maybe not. I guess it depends on what the person likes to read.
