I REALLY LOOKED FORWARD TO READING THIS BOOK THEreally looked forward to reading this book The criticism I have is the seuence of the actual chapter text of the book and the information inserts that the author has throughout It is very chopped up Reading the chapter then turning the age to find there is information Tamed By The Billionaire (Book 1) (Book 1) (BBW Billionaire Romance) pertaining to something else on the nextage The chapter text starts a couple of Deathgrip pages later in some cases breaking up the continuity Other than this it makes for a very interesting read for those who enjoy nostalgia and want to be transported back to a simpler and fun time.
