The only thing that got this book a second star was that the twist at the end was a bit of a surprise.Other than that, it was boring. Could we get a lot less talk and a little more action? I found myself nearly falling asleep & skipping over pages of descriptive crap. Nobody bought this book to read about what New York or Italy looks like, girlfriend. Think of it as Fifty Shades, minus anything you liked about those books. It was unoriginal & I would probably have stopped reading it weren't for the fact that I have the day off & it's rainy & I'm bored.
