When I first started this book, I was worried that it would get way too dark for me. I can’t lie. I was really leery of it. One of my favorite narrators narrates this books though. She made it easier to get through. I’m so glad that I was able to ignore it and get through it anyway. I actually wound up listening to it twice. Not back to back. But within a couple hours of each other. It’s a really good story.

This book really hooked me at the very beginning. Then there was a thing that happened in the first few chapters that really made me cringe. It could have gone a lot worse. I honestly thought it was going to. It didn’t. I’m thankful for that. I don’t think I would have continued the book if it had. It was a really intense and interesting book. There are some areas I didn’t enjoy and some that I felt could have been prolonged a bit more. Either way, I really enjoyed it. I give it a four out of five-star rating.

Didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did. I was really impressed. It did have some vibes that reminded me of other books and some movies that are similar to it. All in all I’m glad I chose to give it a chance. I do recommend it.

This book is the second book in a series, but it’s a stand-alone novel. I didn’t think I’d enjoy either book. I thought they would be really cheesy. The first one gave me really strong Twilight vibes. I really did enjoy the book very much. I enjoyed both books very much. They both get a solid four out of five stars from me. If you like satirical and heavily sexual paranormal romances, I definitely recommend this.

I want to strongly state that I am very uncomfortable with the romance in this story. It’s not really something I agree with. However, I have a lot of respect with the realism of the story itself. The author may not be happy to hear my take on this, but it’s my opinion.

Personally, I got really strong vibes of manipulation and grooming in this story. That’s why I say I have a great respect for the realism of the book. Not once is the romance glamorized or made to look appealing. It’s raw and it’s ugly. The guy comes off as a total predator in my eyes.

Another real aspect I’d like to talk about is how some of these girls push themselves just to achieve and obtain their goals. It’s really frightening to see. It’s even more scary to see them being pushed past their breaking point. Our main character, Arianna, basically starved herself and obsessed with everything she put in her body. She was working out and training ten hours or more a day for six days a week. Not only did she not need to cut back on her diet, but really she should have added to it!

All in all, this could be turned into a Lifetime movie or television show. I’d probably watch it. I get that people are upset about the content of this book. I agree. I just ask that they maybe see it from a different point of view.
