Evelyn Harper lived the perfect life.
Until she was fired from her job.
After a ridiculous idea devised among friends comes to existence, Evelyn finds herself part owner in a private investigation firm specializing in matters of the heart. Throughout wild antics with her best friends Jonathan and Kate, Evelyn conducts relationship background checks for a wide variety of clients.
Soon it becomes clear that one case has moved beyond professional and Evelyn finds herself fighting an attraction she cannot resist.
Will Evelyn admit her feelings when she uncovers love in the most unexpected of places?
I want to start off by saying that I really wanted to love this book.I was patiently waiting for its release just like everyone else was when I was contacted by the author to receive an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I found the plot of the story to be very slow and hardly interesting.I have never encountered a New Adult based around a PI service. I wanted to be intrigued. I really did but the storyline just failed to deliver for me.
The character development could have used some more work in my opinion. I felt that Tate was too perfect. I think if he had a little more edge and some more angst it could have easily made the story so much better.I didn't mind Kate she was spunky and a really great friend and I liked her personality. Evie was just too plain for me. I didn't hate her but I didn't love her either.
Jon however was the only character to have an interesting back story and he was my favorite male in the book still I kept getting annoyed with him.He's known Kate and Evie for a long time, even crushed on both of them back in high school yet years later he's still trying to make up his damn mind.
It took me longer than usual to get through this one and on multiple occasions I wanted to quit but something in me kept telling me that the pace will pick up. And just like I predicted the story got better just not enough to make me fall in love. Evie and Tate's love story was just not my cup of tea. We all know I love a HEA but I found this one to be a bit too cheesy for my liking.
My final thoughts:
This is the author's first novel and although this book wasn't a 5 stars for me I wouldn't rule her out just yet. I have a feeling that she will produce some great reads with time. I also found that Jon and Kate's voices were the only ones that I enjoyed and I think the two would make a great couple. I hope this will be the case with the second book and yes I will be reading the next one.
