Hey everyone! As you’ve probably seen, I’ve been slowly getting into the habit of posting my reviews again! Consistency is not my specialty, but I’m working on it!
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I had a really hard time writing this review because there were a lot of things about this book that I liked and a lot that I did not like. This story follows Starr, a regular high school girl with big dreams for the future. When she goes to take a leadership test, she is shocked to discover that the test was a cover-up for an Organization who wishes to recruit her as an assassin. Next thing she knows, she’s on the run from this crazy Organization. To her surprise, Christian, a goth boy from school who hates her, comes to her rescue and they team up to get her as far away from the Organization as possible.
I’ll start with the pros. All in all, I really liked the concept of Starr being on the run from this Organization. It seemed interesting and I was curious about who they are and what they do. I also liked the side characters as they seemed really amusing and made the story more fun. I might grab a copy of book two just to figure out what’s going on with the plot because it did intrigue me.
However, there were some cons as well. First off, I know this was supposed to be an enemies-to-lovers thing but it seemed like insta love. Also, some of the dialogue was kinda cringy. Sometimes random information was introduced and the main character just moved on like it was completely normal while I would still be trying to figure out what was happening. (Head to my Goodreads if you want to see a spoiler about something that confused me.)
Ultimately, I thought the concept was cool but it kinda fell flat for me. Maybe it suits other readers better? I’m probably going to read book two out of curiosity and that might help clear some things up.
