While the plot of this book was good,it does have a lot of unanswered questions as it is a short read. I would have liked to have read more about Jason and Remy and got to know their characters more. As far as the romance between Zoey & Maurice,it was way too brief. The only thing sexy and romantic about this book is the cover art,which doesn't match the main female character. Zoey's character is described with straight hair and she's pale skinned in the book. I hope the rest of the series gives more attention to detail with each character as it is a promising series.
FTC:I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
