Review: Romance is not my thing, its something I tend to avoid. That being said I actually didn’t mind the romance so much in this. It felt realistic and didn’t feel overly forced. Plus there was so much more happening that the romance felt like only part of the story. The suspense/crime side to it was intriguing enough to hook me in. Making me want to find out who behind it all.
There are sex scenes and the violence is descriptive to a certain degree. It has to be in order to get the true level of response. Disgust and anger, how could someone be so broken.
