Loved the female friendships...at first. But when they turned out to be pretty shallow and one-sided in the case of everyone else and this MC, eh.
Needless to say, this female lead was not my favo
rite. And this male lead could have been cut and pasted from countless other HRs.
Which is why I can't binge read this genre. After two books, it all starts to melt together, so that I can't remember if I just finished a book about the dark and brooding male lead with a heart of gold and the virginal Mary Sue with a chip on her shoulder, or the dark and brooding male lead with a chip on his shoulder and the virginal Mary Sue with a heart of gold.
