This story was heading toward a 4 star read for me and then just as it started to get interesting with regard to the prospect of a relationship it ended. Almost like a prequel to a longer novel that never happened. A shame because I would liked to have seen where the author could have taken this because the writing itself was good, and it felt well reseached.
Four stars for the writing, research and the portion of story we got.
Two stars for the abrupt ending, and leaving the reader with characters they could come to care about had they been given the opportunity.
