I liked it but felt completely unsatisfied by it. The prologue about Parker was so, so good, I was there for it. However, it didn’t really have anything to do with anything until 87% of the book or so, and it felt like the scene related to it was there as a filler, just so no one like me would come and say why did we have that prologue when nothing in the book had anything to do with it? And, as it turned out, Nash had drama of his own, and that’s what actually ended up being at the climax of the story. So, had anyone asked me beforehand (lol), I would’ve suggested that the author added a part for Nash in the prologue. Leave Parker’s part in there too, then switch and add a part of Nash’s backstory as well. And then it would’ve all tied into where she wanted to go with the drama between Parker and Nash toward the end. I also have to say that the usage of the word “wondered” drove me nuts here, and I think it was a built-up from the previous books in the series. For example, when one of the characters would say, “What are you doing here?” he wondered. OMG enough with the wondering. It could’ve been “questioned”, “inquired”, etc. There were other instances where it just didn’t feel natural to use it. It also gave the whole thing an unnatural vibe, like the dialogue didn’t feel realistic. Anyways, it’s been a cute series, but not the greatest.
