My Rating: 2 Stars
I was excited to read this one, but it read more like YA and I wasn’t expecting that, nor was I looking for it in a story about a MFC in her late 30’s.
I found the story arc to be fumbling, the dialogue stilted and awkward, the shifts between present day and past were not well defined, and I didn’t really understand the romantic relationship between Gillian and Aiden at all - the reader is told more than shown; that didn’t work.
Unfortunately, this one wasn’t for me.
