Ugghhh I struggled through the repetitiveness of the first one and gave this one a go. There’s just so much internal monologue followed by exactly the same spoken monologue. Whhhyyyt???? I just don’t care about the end of the story. Have stopped at 85% and returned both.

I was hoping for a good duet series. It’s a weird tacky story that just doesn’t seem logical. There’s holes that are brushed over. I pushed through but just don’t care about the rest of the story.

Weird narration

The age of the voice was wrong and just didn’t grab me. DNF only a few chapters in.

Liked the premise. Didn’t like the story. Couldn’t get into it. Narration annoyed me and it was hard to know which male character the narrator was being as there wasn’t any variation in the performance. Shame.

The main male character just seemed like an ass and the acceptance of this was just not on. Not for me. Have returned

This is not Pucked. It’s like it’s trying to be but misses the mark. Lack a humour in particular. Also the female narrator doesn’t put the emphasis on the right words or something, like she doesn’t read the punctuation correctly. Have returned at 60%

I tried but there were holes that couldn’t be filled. It’s like there was a back story that was missing.

Not my favourite

I have loved many an AL Jackson book but this one, and this series are not my favourites. Characters are good and the kids are always written so well.

I bought and returned this book twice (years apart). With all the rave reviews I expected to be taken in by this story but it just didn’t grab me.

Interesting premise for a story. Bit confusing with the backstories though. Just moved into another book without any care for the ending of this one. Just didn’t grab me. Narration was good.
