Review:

I think I will keep this sort. I am trying to think something to say about this book. The truth is that I wasn't as blown away as I thought I would be from this book. I was expecting something more shady from the main characters to be honest, but so far they seem too good. I expect BLOW to have a secret meaning which we will find out in the second book. This book ends with a nice cliffhanger which sets the ground for a great story in the second book. The book gets points because everything wasn't as it was supposed to be and some people are different than we thought. Michael is a very interesting character and I want to see his face more.

I wasn't completely sold on the story. The into love wasn't completely a problem for me, but I would have liked to see these two spending a little more time together before they fell for each other. I would have liked to see a little more of the Mob stuff because I felt like they were just a side story to fill the pages. It was well orchestrated but the execution wasn't delivered so well. The hot stuff could have been a little cut down in order to solve the mystery of pretty much everything that was going on in their lives.

Overall Blow is going to be a book that most of the readers will like and I give points to the author for that. The characters have a depth and secrets that change the game and the personal drama is just the minimum. I want to see what the author has next for Logan and Elle.
