 3.5 Star Review

Well, this book had certainly a lot of twists and turns and I was literally screaming at my kindle why the hell Sloan isn’t asking the most important question EVER in the 1st half of the book:
Nope, she doesn’t ask Killian what’s going on and just accepts that he hates her guts and openly shows it. I was like, “for real now?!?!” Come on, we’re women and we ALL want to know what’s up, we don’t give up until we know the truth… but nope, Sloan accepted her destiny. 
So, after some tragic event 4.5yrs ago, her ones lover turned her back on her and they parted ways. He basically blew her off and told her to never ever cross his path again –nice huh. Of course Sloan had no effing idea what’s going on and gave up after several tries talking to him.
 Fast forward: Killian enters Sloan’s life again and basically told her to wrap up her belongings, to follow him, and leave her ‘home’ because he bought her –yep you read correctly, he effing bought her. According to him he made a deal with her uncle and now she’s his for one whole year and he can do whatever he wants with her *UGH.
Yep, Sloan is shocked because why would he buy her if he hates her so much. Yeah I asked me the same question…again, why didn’t she ask: WHY DO YOU HATE ME?
Calling Killian a jerk and ass would be an understatement in the first half of the book, even until the 65% mark. He was rude, mishandled her and lied. Of course we could tell that some spark of the old Killian was still lingering underneath but again, it wasn’t clear why he hates her guts – very frustrating.
Well I can’t tell you what’s going on but what I can say it that this book has some serious twists and turn, and when you find out the truth you’ll be like: NO FREAKING WAY, that’s messed up! But yeah way, it all happened and Sloan had to put up with some crazy sh!t.
Why I rated it only 3-3.5 stars is because most of the time I didn’t feel the story; it was more telling than showing. It was often too fast forward and I was like, ‘mmh oook, that was fast, too fast.’ I like to feel the character’s emotions and turmoil and not just by reading words – I need more dialogues, more heartache, more frustration, just anything. The other thing that threw me off a bit was how fast all of a sudden Sloan enjoyed the Fifty Shades style. I mean nothing is wrong with that but after some shocking news, she all of the sudden tells Killian to inflict pain on her so she forgets… He told her that this is his fetish bit she just got introduced to it and BAM she’s hooker, too.

Uhm, I think she turned overnight to a nymph or something. It wasn’t quite fitting to be honest.  The second half of the book felt a bit too rushed and I couldn’t get over the fact that Killian, Mr Smarty-Pants never ever asked Sloan about the truth himself!! Geez, wth is their problem. I mean yrs earlier she was his everything and he counted down the days until she’s 21 and then he doesn’t even bother to ask if the accusations were true?!?! Nope, this left a bitter taste in my mouth.
Don’t get me wrong I liked the book, it was ok but not WOW; I’ll def check out more of Ella’s books because this was my first and it woke my curiosity.
