As much as I enjoy this series, the push/pull of power between Erica and Blake is getting a bit stale to me. We know Blake is going to tell Erica not to do something and she’s going to do it anyway. Then she’ll end up in a bad situation from which he’ll save her.
On one hand, I can almost understand why Erica does what she does. I mean, how hard would it be for Blake to explain his reasons for telling her no? If I were her I’d be ticked, but not go behind his back just to spite him. But Erica does do these things out of spite. She’s supposed to be so smart, but she often doesn’t come across that way. Especially when she comes up with her idiotic plans to go behind Blake’s back and when it comes to her birth father.
I can also see why Blake does what he does to a certain extent. Because as much as she talks about being an able-bodied, smart, independent woman, Erica makes some terrible decisions. She’s truly her own worst enemy.
There are still a lot of things to like about this story. As much as I despise Sophia, I can’t help but be intrigued by her and fascinated by her motivations. Mostly because the writing is actually quite good. You don’t get emotions like hatred out of a reader unless the writing is spot on.
Again, there’s a lot that’s good about this story. But there’s also a lot that felt like same old, same old. I’m looking forward to reading the last book in hopes that the author finds a way to mature the characters and let them really understand what true love feels like.
