What a dreadful book!. This book starts off as a normal Justine Elyot fun sexy tale, and halfway through changes into a really odd sort of Science Fiction meets adult Marvel Comic scenario, which gets more and more preposterous. The 'Book Description' is totally misleading and gives no indication that this book is anything other than the usual ' sexy alpha male and beautiful girl finds his/her ideal mate' story. The ending was totally unfinished and unsatisfying. (Took some gumption to get that far!) SPOILER ALERT The main male character turns out to be an alien! Yes that's right an ALIEN! a horrible manipulative person without full earthly emotions, who is looking for a 'brood partner',- so much for romance!. He speaks through thought transference if he wishes to control the brood partner wherever they are. He is also building an ozone replacement machine to repair holes in the ozone layer (-supported by the government who think he is a scientist helping the world, although his has no qualifications!) so that other aliens from his planet can't get through to capture him to take him back to work for them. The whole thing is too depressing and weird to go in to further. Will not be buying any more books by this author.
I enjoyed the twist of this story with lust and desire at the beginning and a change in direction halfway through. I thought it was not Justine Elyot's usual style of story however it was written so that it intrigued me to find out the ending of John, Anna, Mimi and Liam. I liked the ending it felt complete to the twist.
