I like stuff with romantic elements and angst, usually YA, fantasy, paranormal/urban fantasy or variations thereof. Usually wrinkles nose at sci-fi due to unlikely tech. Straight girl who likes boys that like boys!
The characters felt flat, every character - including side kicks! - had drama, angst and a dark story lurking behind a more or less normal seeming front. It became a little too much for me. The book ends abruptly with hardly any issues settled, as if the author decided there were enogh words to send it to print. At least they could have taken the time to weed out the most blaring grammatical errors.
