Our thoughts...

Ugh. I am so thankful that is over. Writing this review is almost as painful as finishing the series. I don't think I can say anything new that I didn't already say in regards to the first two books. Book three is just more of the same that I encountered in the first two books. (See my reviews here and here).

Here is what my notes look like from when I read this:

10.0% : "I barely care enough to finish this. I've been attempting to read this for a few days now and in only10% in. This is boring."  

23.0%  "this is just getting ridiculous. Actually, it has been for awhile. I'd rather go clean the bathroom."  

30.0%  "You know things are getting old when you fall asleep during a hot I-haven't-seen-you-in-weeks sex scene."  

72.0%  "we're finally given some real plot action and it's quickly taken away again. I'm so bored!"  

I originally had high hopes for this series because so many friends gave it 5 stars. I could not get into it, could not respect or care for these characters, and could not finish it fast enough. This is definitely not my finest review but in all honesty, I don't care to give this story any more of my time.
