Review #1423 Prodigal by Rektok Ross
Prodigal by Rektok Ross
Rating: two stars (out of four)
This book reminded me a little too much of those stories where the girl drops everything in her life once she realizes a boy likes her. While that wasn’t completely the case in this novel, there were enough similarities to make me cringe. I wasn’t impressed with the characters throughout the story - they fell flat. I also wasn't a fan of the back and forth between Ash and Lexy - it didn’t feel realistic. It was a tad bit unnerving how fast she gave up all her hopes and ambitions of her precious editor position once she became obsessed with this boy. The relationship didn't have a firm foundation and was only based on mutual attraction. I didn’t know what they were going to do with themselves when they got tired of making out. The spiritual elements were handled fairly well, but I was so perturbed with the rest of the plot and characterization that in the end they felt shallow. It was an interesting story premise, but didn’t live up to its potential. I didn't like the ending either. Not something I'd recommend.
