This one just didn’t work for me. It happens. Others seemed to really enjoy it, so it just may be me.
I wasn’t able to connect with Paige. I found her rude rather than sassy and crude rather than clever. It wasn’t so much that she was insecure, we all are in some way. It was that she never once seemed to consider anyone else’s feelings. I simply found her to be unkind. BUT like I said, there are plenty of 5 star reviews that felt otherwise.
Levi was ok. I found him common or unremarkable. He was fine. I liked him better than Paige, but he doesn’t stand out to me.
Overall, I felt like the characters and plot were one dimensional. The story had great potential but the characters weren’t strong enough to carry it for me.
I enjoy the authors writing style and very much enjoyed Matson’s first book, but this one fell short for me. She is writing a sequel and I have been told that book two will answer a lot of questions we are left with in book one as well as a huge character adjustment for both Paige and Levi. So I will be reading UnExpected to see how these characters grow and change.
2 stars and several Long Island Ice Teas for Blindsided. Cheers
