As a big fan of Alisha Rai, it pains me to not finish one of her books, especially since I was highly anticipating GIRL GONE VIRAL. I loved THE RIGHT SWIPE, and I had such high hopes for the second book. I mean, bodyguard romance? A curvy heroine who loves her body? Sexy hero with a beard? Sign me up!
Sadly, I just could not get invested in the story. I read about half of the book and absolutely nothing was happening. It’s rare that I am this bored by two characters. I didn’t feel any chemistry between them and I found the multitude of subplots distracting. I think I could have forged on if I felt any zing between Katrina and Jas. They barely had a half hug and they didn’t pine quite as much as I was hoping for.
I think my biggest problem was the “mystery” of Jas’ military thing and Katrina’s marriage. I felt like I was only seeing part of both characters, and it was the boring part. I am mildly interested to hear about how Katrina’s first marriage worked, but not enough to keep reading.
Overall, I am a big fan of Ms. Rai’s writing. I know I will continue to anticipate her future books, this one was just a miss for me.
