Paul and Rachelle: yay or nay?

Post by leanne_brown17 » 04 Dec 2018, 07:59

Do you feel that the relationship between Paul and Rachelle added tension and excitement to the story, or did their interactions fall flat?

By the end of the book, I was so over them. The 'will they, won't they' got very boring. In the end, I was actually indifferent about their relationship.

I think it's a yay! Their relationship add something in the whole story. But I also think that it was kind of too much.

Like most fictional romance relationships, the author made them look like they were gonna last forever. I loved how they were featured in the book though, so yay for me!

The author's approach to romance didn't appeal to me, as I thought that there wasn't much chemistry.

I like a little romance in just about everything I read. So while reading the sample I was very excited to see that there was a possibly of a romance. I am defiantly rooting for them.

I think that it added a somewhat dramatical tension to the story.

Of course, love relations add excitement to the story, but as I have not read the full book so I cannot say anything about the relationship between Paul and Rachelle.

It felt forced, and predictable. The masked vigilante was the best part of this story, and I wish more was based off of that.

I agree. I thought the book would be more centered around the masked murderer and was disappointed that it wasn’t.
