Great narrator.

Story with good potential

Terrible relationship spoils it all for me.

Minor spoilers ahead.

I’d kept hoping this book would improve. Diana is intelligent, independent and powerful and I kept hoping she would unleash her power or at least Stand up to Matthew.

Instead the red flags in their relationship get more disturbing and are framed as romance. Matthew gets more controlling of her and I couldn’t go any further when about half way through he grabs her pushes her onto the couch and tells her he will kill her before allowing anyone else to hurt her. This is not long after he man handles her off a horse because he didn’t like the way she was riding. Gee how romantic.

Seriously. Narratives like this help abusive relationships begin and continue. It is harmful to frame a mans control and treating you like a helpless child as romantic because he just cares so much about you.
