What an expensive disappointment...can I have a refund? :(,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Colters' Gift (Colters' Legacy) (Kindle Edition)
Firstly, the price. Your never forced to buy a book, however, you almost always are when it's Maya Banks because your expectations are so high. Mine even more so having read all her previous books from every series she's ever done. So when I say this is a big disappointment, I mean it. The price has reduced, slightly, now, but when I purchased it, it was nearly £10. For a Kindle book. WAY too overpriced. I'm aware Maya has recently started publishing her own books which might be why it's so expensive but for me your already going to lose UK readers with this price. No Kindle book should ever be that much, that is the price of a hardback imo. Perhaps I feel even more annoyed because the book was such a let down.
Secondly, I hardly feel it's worth writing a review on the book itself but here we go. I felt like we spent nearly half of the book in Lauren's apartment with the two main lead's Liam and Noah. It was a bore-off, simple as. The sex scene's were only worth skipping, same old same old. Now, I'm aware there is only so much you can do with a story and it's character's but I've read plenty of authors who are on a par with Banks and are producing fresh new ideas in the Romance genre so for me this was a big let down.
Considering this was the last in the series of what I thought up till now was individual and cared for by Banks, it was just plain lousy. It felt rushed and the ending was rubbish, not to mention we had follow-up's of everyone but Max and Callie who are one of the favourite couples from this series, not good.
Basically, save yourself some disappointment, re-read her old Colter's Legacy books, don't buy this and wait a few years till it's dramatically reduced in price.
Not good Maya, not good.
