Review: I thought this was a pretty good book. The plot is intriguing and kept me hooked throughout the book, the characters were all well developed, and the writing was pretty good.
However, I didn’t like how each character got a back story. I felt like it was too much development and I would have rather had the time put into the setting and bigger plot points, as there is a lot of information in this book and some of it did go over my head. This also focuses heavily on the romance, which isn’t for me.
Verdict: If you like political romance thrillers, this is for you!
