Overall, I really enjoyed My GRL. The story was very fast-paced, full of action, and it was hard to put down.
I was pleasantly surprised that the plot wasn’t as predictable as I thought it was going to be when I first read the synopsis. The reader quickly finds out that things are not as they seem, and are really thrown for a loop.
My gripes with the book are fairly minor, and didn’t really bother me too much. First, the first-person present tense of the narration was a bit hard to read at first, as the tenses did change a bit throughout. I quickly got used to this and really started to enjoy the writing. Furthermore, I felt that the author did a lot of over-explaining as if it was just trying to fill pages. The author seemed to keep pointing out that the main character really wanted half and half and Splenda in their coffee. I think this is mostly attributed to it being an early work of the author, and it didn’t really bother me too much.
I am looking forward to the next book!
