Rating: 3/5 stars
Okay, the title might just be a little bit too harsh but that really is what this book felt like.
Vivian was an interesting character on her own and it was easy to sympathize with her. Her inner struggles concerning her parents felt incredibly real and her hurt came across clearly, but I wish the author had spent some time developing Vivian’s character outside of the conflict situations.
Dante, on the other hand, was difficult to distinguish from the rest of the Twisted men. He’s rich, brooding, mysterious, and terrible at communication. And so are Alex and Christian. Some flashes of personality shone through, but that’s all it was: flashes.
Ana Huang’s books have never particularly been story-driven, which I have no problem with, but in this case, our characters follow the same patterns as all the other Twisted couples. Reusing the same story formula could work, but Vivian and Dante aren’t strong enough personalities to carry the whole book.
Even some of the things Dante says to Vivian feel recycled from the Twisted series.
I’m not saying this is a bad book; I think on its own it can stand strong. But after finishing the Twisted series and LOVING every moment of it, this book failed to make its own mark in Ana Huang’s releases.
