Read it in all of 2 sessions because it was so easy to get into. The first book felt complete and was satisfying, but the hints at wants to come for book 2 show that book 1 only touched the surface. The concept of assassin debt collectors is eerily plausibly. But I wonder what the bank gets off of killing people other than scaring people with very low debt to pay up and people to not getting credit cards in the future.
This was just as enjoyable as the others in the series. I loved Max, and it was nice to see a kinder side of the misunderstood bad boy, Alex. I would have liked even more chapters. My favorite parts were the closet and hallway scenes.
Every book in this series has been a hit. I really liked Charlotte. She reads like an aspie, and it was so refreshing. She's not given a label and there's nothing that says she is on the autism spectrum, but if diagnosing fictional characters is a thing, total aspie. I can relate to her wanting direct answers and conversations rather than skirting around topics. Similar to myself, she will often start to answer a question trying to be vague and waiting for the other person to ask for more information before giving it up.
Kissing The Shy Guy was so sweet. You have this mean girl with a bit of a reputation and then a shy guy who is a little bit of an outsider. He thinks that she is stuck up and selfish, but his sister has been sneaking around with her boyfriend, and now that the cat's out of the bag and she's been dumped right before the competition of a lifetime, he feels obligated to help. Then he spots her catering a family member's funeral reception and doing other things that make him question if she's really as bad as everyone thinks.
I've read very few books about dancers but this one was great. It had a rich dancer who was pretty set on doing the exact moves and being completely technical and she was competing for an arts scholarship. But she didn't want to work with the choreographer her mom chose who was really stiff and wouldn't be able to push her. She doesn't want to continue to rehearse the same dance that her mom wants her to use to get into an elite ballet company. Instead, she wants to win this competition so that colleges can see her perform and she can have that as an option rather than making being part of a ballet company her life.
