Loved this story. It was one of those books that I couldn’t put down until the end. This is a novella.

I liked alot of aspects of this book. It's what I refer to as an easy read. Meaning that the plot moves along fast enough to keep you turning the page.
However, I also want the main characters to actually have sex. I like the cat-&-mouse game, but I also like the reward. So in that respect, I feel it was more for a younger reader as I am 45.
All in all a good read with a plot twist that was unexpected. But, I was leaning that way before the end of the book.

The premise of this book is a good one.
The plot is solid and there is a twist at the end that makes it interesting.
The characters were likeable, the two protagonists at least (Kendall and Logan) and you really enjoyed reading about them.
Overall, I would have to say that it was a fun read with lots of action and romance on the side.
However, I have to admit that I was expecting a bit more in terms of description and execution in general.
It is not that it was poorly written, because there were only a few grammatical or spelling mistakes, but the way the descriptions unfolded was a bit over-simplistic and well it lacked the depth that would make me connect to the characters feelings and pains throughout the story.
Some things were just happening too fast and the characters were just brushing them off like it was nothing, while they were life-changing.
For example, I would definitely be in shock if anything like what happened with Kendall and her father had happened to me, but Kendall just brushed it off the very next day.
I get that it is a short story but if we had a little more elaborating on the situations and the thoughts/emotions, it would have made it all the more exciting and interesting for me.
But that is just me and like I said, all in all it was a good story.
