Then halfway through it all went tits up.
All of a sudden these two people -practically strangers - were declaring their unending, undying, eternal love for eachother, to the extent that would make anyone who wasn't a thirteen year-old YA dark romance obsessed little girl feel rather sick. The imediacy and ferocity of their love wasn't romantic, or enthralling, it was just plain unhealthy. As a reading experience, it wasn't a smooth transition. They didn't glide into romance poetically, and gracefully as the genre demands. It was like being hit by a truck. The book became PACKED with cliches and some of the wost characterization I've ever witnessed.
Such a shame, because the original plot idea was so promising, and the main characters in the first few chapters were fantastic! One star for the start, two stars for the potential that the author shows. Such a waste of a really good beginning. All this book needs is some heavy duty editing, and I would gladly give this book a second chance.
To top it off, the secondary main character William who she claims to love is just as wealthy as her. This does not seem very well thought through in general as part of the plot; the main character is flaky and inconsistent at best, the romance between them cliche and seemingly founded on nothing but the fact that they like the way the other one looks. Despite the explanation of how her stereotypical one true love has had visions of her for 200 years, frankly the 'relationship' between them is verging on ridiculous.
Whilst I would hope to see it get better and actually have the writer consider the plotline a bit more, I cannot bring myself to pay for a second novel to see if they actually have a relationship beyond attraction and self-pity which they share between them throughout the majority of the novel.
This being said, the writing in itself is not awful; the lack of plotline and development just makes this a pushing read at best and extremely unentertaining.
