I liked the first book a lot. It was a different concept and I loved Aspen and Maxon. My main problem with the first book was America was slightly whiny. She was not bad enough to drive me crazy because the rest of the book was good. That was not the case in this book. I read about 50% of the book before I was done. I tried to finish this book 4 times before I decided to dnf the book. The entire book is America changing her mind between Aspen and Maxon. I tried several times to finish the book but I never could finish it. I tried. I will not to be reading the next book.
