I used to be the blogger called YAL Book Briefs, but I grew bored of the handle and changed my name to Howdy YAL. I also respond to MJ. I like to read, write, eat truffles, and watch bad Lifetime movies.
Definitely some flaws. Even though I don't like one of the love interests I get he's characterized the way he is for a reason.

Still though, it works for me. Projected rating right now is probably between 3.5 and 4 stars. I'm thinking probably four.
