It took a bit, but I really liked the main character Chloe in this. And despite his attitude I think Derek was probably my favorite character. I liked the premise and I liked the writing style too, but I didn't really feel like the plot advanced much in this book. For a book that is almost 400 pages, I didn't really feel like a lot happened. That's not to say I hated it, because I didn't, I just wasn't sucked in like I thought I might be. I might read the other two books in this trilogy, but it won't be right away.
