In this book, we follow Jane as she tries to save her sister from a cult leader and thinks that former MC President, Max, is the key to finding her.
When reading this story, I think of it as two stories wrapped up in one. The main story, or the essential part of the story is Jane trying to find and save her sister. That is the story that kept me reading on. We got to see the many different levels that living in a cult is like. Cult life is a complex and intriguing part of history. People have tried to understand how and why they become so successful and this book dabbles into that dark world.
The other part of the story, the part that I had a hard time following, was the love story between Max and Jane. That story flip-flopped so many times that it was hard to follow. One second they are in love with one another, then next they hate each other. There was no rhyme or reason to the things that they did that I couldn’t follow the progress of their relationship.
Jane has a lot of her own issues that she has to work out, and considering what she went through, I expected more of…substance with her character. She was all over the place and I couldn’t really understand her at all. And for Max, he had the makings of being a great interest to pique the female readers, but for me, I couldn’t really get that attached to him. I found that I didn’t really like him as much as I had wanted.
