This one started off a bit slowly for me, but once Dorie goes on her trip things pick up quickly. Although I wasn’t quite sure of her fellow passengers at first, most of them endeared themselves to me by midway through the story.
By far, Christian was my favorite character from the moment he came on the scene. This book was one of those that the reader can see many things that the heroine, in this case Dorie, cannot. She was too emotionally invested to see what (who) was right and what (who) was wrong. I fully understood her thought process. Who wouldn’t think the All-American guy was the perfect hook up? I’ve always had a thing for the brooding “bad” boys though.
There was a lot going on this book. I had fun reading it for sure, but it did get a bit convoluted toward the end. Not that I lost track of what was going on…I didn’t. It just seemed like some strange overkill on the twists.
