This book is fine. The writing is fine, the plot is fine, the characters are fine. It started out well, but the plot twists are more like gentle meanders and the characters are pretty dull and not incredibly well developed. This reads like a decent fairly clean story from Literotica got stretched way out into a novel. I'm certain I will not rember this story in a month. It's not bad, but it's not good and it's certainly not memorible. If you want an easy summer read there are better options but this will get the job done.
