I wanted to like it. But it started off sooooo slooooowwww and the author describes every.single.detail, which I hated. By the time the book gets interesting - you're halfway through it. And I don't normally commit to a book that long - but since it was for my work bookclub, I stuck it out. I absolutely hated Lena. The fact that she was such a goodie-goodie drove me CRAZY. Alex was the only saving grace in this book - but when he was caught in the end, I wanted to scream in outrage.
I won't be continuing the series. You win some, you lose some. Time to move on.
