The book drug on a little to much. The story could have been a little shorter and been better. I like an epilog at the end of a book too or I feel like it is left without an ending.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I have to agree with some of the other ratings and admit the book was a task until halfway through. Even with a predictable outcome its worth reading. Blake and Adriane meet during a social gathering for their hostess wants to see the reaction. Blake is Adrian's enemy in another newspaper. Her father and Blake have fired editorials at each other. The political climate starts heating up along with several girls being murdered. I was surprised in good ways towards the end.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

It took me a while to get into the book. I almost put it down, but decided to preserver. The book starts out really slow. I didn't think the book was ever going to take off. The first 70 pages were rough getting through, but once you can get past it Adriane and Blake's relationship starts taking off. The book adds a little suspense with the River slasher, otherwise the verbal battles started getting humorous and I wanted to see what else was going to happen. The book has some love scenes that are tasteful and not graphic at all. The political tension and riot was fascinating to read. There is a lot of history involved and the author did well in her research.
I enjoyed the book after it picked up and the characters were well done. The plot was great loved the twists and the history. I vaguely remember the riot from high school and was fascinated to read more about it. After I got done with the book I told my two oldest sons about what happened and the time period. My 15-year-old knew some of the history and asked to read the book. I am glad I stuck it out it was nice talking to me children about and book and one wanting to actually read it.
