    Honestly, this book was very confusing. The overall theme was easy to understand: girl is put in danger, her psychotic father doesn't care if she dies as long as he obtains what he wants, her overprotective foster brother forces a fiend to guard her, they are sexually attracted to each other, eventually emotionally involved, and together they survive through a major tragedy, defeat her father, and live happily ever after. That pretty much seems to be the outline for every novel I read nowadays. It has indeed become old. Despite that, I still enjoyed this novel. However, I often found myself confused. It wasn't because I didn't know what was going on, who somebody was, and didn't read the first in the series. No, the characters' gestures and dialogues confused me. Sometimes, one character would touch another in a certain way, and I didn't understand why. Other times, characters would be conversing and I just didn't understand <i>why</i> they were saying the things they were. I don't know if I was tired or what, but I found myself wondering more often than not why they were doing the things they were. After awhile, I just stopped questioning and read. Xia and Alexandrine's relationship also had me scratching my head. At first, all they did was bicker. And not even intelligent arguing either. There was no trying to prove a point or open the other's eyes. Nope, this was just flat out arguing for the sake of arguing. I was to the point of pulling my hair when all of a sudden, they cared about each other. They weren't emotionally attached yet, just one person caring about the safety of another. I think the turnabout gave me whiplash. Then events actually started happening. By the time I finished the book, I literally had no idea about anything. I think I was just too exhausted to read this novel and actually comprehend it.

    What did I just read?

    I should have learned my lesson from the first book! But no, I wanted to give the author a second chance, hoping the second book would be more clear. It wasn't. Although I found I liked and understood the characters more in My Forbidden Desire, the writing still had my brain twisted. Again I found myself wanting to like the book, the story is definetly interesting and has great potential, but unfortunatly the writing is so confusing that I couldn't figuire out what was happening! (Did she use magic? Or was it someone else? How did she get from point A to point B?) I was lost before I hit chapter 4 and by the time I finished the book (yea, I finished it) my head hurt. I felt like I had just been studying for my high school exams! Will I read the third book? Depends on how much tylenol I can gather! And yea two stars is being generous!
