*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review*
I don't normally read Dystopia. But, this book wasn't very much like others I've read in that genre. This was actually an exciting story. I enjoyed the back story that was short and sweet about some of the characters. I thought this was a fun romance. It has action, suspense and more! It's a slight sexy story, but mainly about the action. This was a short story and fun. I loved the characters, the ending, all of it.
My only problem, keeping this from being a 5 star for me, is that there were editing errors. Nothing to keep it from being enjoyed, but they were noticable.
It's still a good read though!
