I normally love books in which the H/h have had a previous relationship. This story just seemed too angsty for a romance book. There was a lot of emotional backstory going on throughout the book.
For some reason, I just could not connect to either the H or the h.
They both had their dysfunctions, which is fine, but it got in the way of the story for me.
I think there was too much going on emotionally for a shorter book. I may have felt more connected with the characters if it had been a longer book and I could have really understood each of their viewpoints more.
It really isn't a 3 star book for me, but didn't quite hit 2 stars. More like 2.5, but I rounded up.
