I’m really not feeling this one. It feels lifeless to me. In books 1 and 2, the characters had chemistry. I knew they’d get together, but I was eager to see how. This time around, I felt nothing. They didn’t feel like two people who were bound for each other. They both feel paper-thin personality-wise.

As far as the plot goes, it’s more or less a repeat of the first 2 books without the charm. So it feels as if the book is just “going through the motions” as if there’s a checklist of plot points the author had to check off. It worked the first 2 times, but it really feels lazy this time around. There’s conflict, but I never cared or felt invested. It’s difficult to enjoy the same story 3 times in a row it seems.

The narration is alright, nothing special. But I’m always going to knock points off for people who say made-up words such as “farmiliar” and can’t tell the difference between O and zero.
