Can't say that I was a fan of this story. I was looking forward to a pyschological murder mystery that would have me on the edge of my seat and I'm not really sure what I read in this book. One, it took me way too long to get into this story even with the murders starting early.

I essence, I'm not a fan of mulitple POV's. It's very rare that I do come acroose them, but I do know some authors take to this style, but if there are going to be so many people's POV's, I at least want to understand each and every one of them without getting confused or it taking away from the main stories plot. Thats what happened here and led to this 2 heel feeling.

I also have to say that I wasn't a fan of Lili's or many of the main characters...espcially the YA's. I just cannot get into the head of a young person UNLESS they have a grown up way of thinking. The criminal psychiatrist, I thought was interesting enough and the murderer was your typical serial killer, there was really nothing exciting about him for me.

Another thing that added to my confusion was the how the author switched from calling some of the younger characters to "the boy" or "the girl" sometimes in the same sentence. It really didn't make for a good reading experience and left me confused.

I love murder mysteries, I really do especially when there is a physcopath on the loose, but I need characters who really be on almost the same level and with LoveClub, I didn't that get that here. The story really just bordered on boredom for me and honestly I couldn't wait for it to end and at 413 pages that isn't really a good thing.

**This book was sent to me by the author for the purpose of an honest review.

  1. Ah man that's too bad Sharonda. And dang a long book when you just aren't connecting with it. The multiple point of view I've seen done really well a couple times but really only a couple times and the rest of them like you mentioned either confusing or just not enough to really know them. Appreciate the heads up on it.
