I was super stoked to read the plot for this story, it’s one that isn’t as overdone as others and I think it gave the author a leg up. However, the writing was juvenile. If you’re looking for an hour-long read, maybe it’s for you. For me, the main character had me speed reading.
Addison is young. Really young, and her childish attitude and rude attitude was distracting, annoying, and infuriating. Ethan is described at a ripped hunk but never his age so my brain wasn’t sure how old to make him. Put him next to the childish Addison and you get a statutory relationship (I think? Chapter one she’s nineteen but in high school?), and yes I know she’s dead. Then, she lives by herself as an underage (maybe?) kid going to high school, what?
There were just too many inconsistencies and strange plot choices made. What this story needed was a better content editor.
