This story was a no go for me. The characters and plot were insufferable. The story line could have been good but it was all over the place. The characters were all morons and half the characters fell of the face of the earth in the story. There was a ton of fluff in it too. It was painful trying to read it.
Madeline was pathetic. The more she tried to prove she “wasn’t a naive child,” the more immature she actually acted. In fact I felt all the characters were immature.
Preston/Tobias was weak. For a seasoned detective he never got a single thing right. Even with distractions or being blinded by self-fish motives you’d think he would have some decency, but no, he was terrible. He wasn’t a strong, sexy, hero. He was a manipulative, lying, self-fish, asshat.
Their love story made no sense at all. There was no spark, no fireworks, no chemistry. Just a girl acting like a high schooler crushing on a boy in an almost obsessive manner. And she was in love with him just by looking at him. She was basically a nuisance and his doormat.
