The premise for this revenge novel was very hard to swallow. The main female character wants to avenge her brother's death by trying to have him so enamored with her and then throwing him away. What kind of revenge is that? Really. For your brother's death. The other thing is that the contrived conflict between Claire and Grayson. It's repetitive with no real development.
I think there was real potential with Claire's character. She did have a lot of spirit but her evolution is not convincing developed. Grayson's character is better developed but again, his evolution is hard to swallow as well since it lacks proper development.
This story has potential but it flounders.
