Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mini review on GR! Mini review: DNF Trigger warning: Suffering injuries from a sport. Till the point I read. I received this E-ARC via Macmillan-Tor/Forge and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I read the authors debut and didn’t enjoy it. Still this one sounded promising and I wanted to give it a go. Unfortunately this author isn’t for me. I didn’t care for the characters or the story. They seemed alright. But not enough to continue reading This is a personal thing. Still recommend.
