Flows through the same path
The book to me personally had nothing new to offer but hardcore fans of young adult or contemporary romance may find it alluring but somehow the book didn’t charm me much inspite of revolving around the classic bad boy vs good girl theme.
Maybe one after another book on the same theme and same style had made me not enjoy the book as much as it was being praised by others. The book technically has all the elements. Handsome bunch of guys, a good down to earth female character, romance, villains, classic boy saves girl scenes… every elements that could entice the readers of this genre but the fact is that the basic content remains exactly the same as the other contemporary romance.
The one thing that actually impressed me in the book was the best friend. Now that was a character that completely filled the pages wherever and whenever she appeared and in comparison our central character lacked lustre and spark
The book is not at all bad but just another one in millions of similar fashioned and themes contemporary romance
