Echo (Bleeding Hearts, #1)Echo by A. Zavarelli

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Writing: ★★★
Story: ★★★★
Characters: ★★★

Overall rating: 3.3

Two Weeks.

That's what it took me to get through this book. The first 70%, give or take, was a yawnfest for me. The story would start to move forward and then *BAM* sex scene. I'd skim over that.. A LOT.. the story would pick up and then *BAM* ANOTHER sex scene.
At that point it felt like the story was built around the sex, and it really didn't add anything to the story.

But towards the end, the story got pretty good. Mainly cause the main characters didn't have time or opportunity to screw. This was the redeeming factor in this book, making it a solid 3 Star read. Not bad.

I don't mind sex in a story... actually enjoy it most of the time.
- When I'm connected to the characters
- When it adds to the story
- When it isn't over the top ridiculous

The one thing I was pretty ticked off about is that this book ends in a damn cliffhanger. Really? What was the damn point in that, could have just taken out some of the sex, and finished the book.

So yes, now I'll be reading the next book... hmm.. guess *that* was the point in the cliffhanger. *smh*
