I am familiar with Audrey Carlan from her Calendar Girl series, which I enjoyed. When I saw she was venturing into the MC world, I had to take a chance on it.
I am a big fan of MC’s, so maybe my expectations were too high, but it went a little overboard for me. It was too much, too extreme of everything. Almost like maybe trying too hard. I thought the storyline was a good idea, and the characters were well developed. It was just a lot of over the top that wasn’t necessarily pertinent.
Still love Audrey Carlan and her writing, but this may not be the lane for her.
