I almost DNF'd this after a couple of chapter because it felt like it was written by an adolescent. It was very stilted and seemed to try to hard. But the writing improved even if the story didn't. I almost DNF'd it again about 70% in because it was quite boring with not much happening. Then the story got a little interesting, only a little so I ended up finishing. I didn't feel the romance between these two, no connection at all. It might have been better if we got some of Macklins POV as well, that may have helped with the romantic connection. Then again maybe not. Didn't like the ending, it seemed like the author couldn't be bothered rounding out the story properly so took the most convenient and quickest road possible. This was my first book by this author and I don't think I'll be getting another.
