There were several things I didn't like about the first three books, but my biggest issue with them was the over the top drama and dragging story line. After his initial over the top sexual harassment of Ella in the beginning, Easton settled into a charming brother-ish friend to Ella. I wasn't sold on the series as a whole, but everyone raved about a Easton's story in the reviews, so I have it a shot. What a disappointment! He spends the ENTIRE book drunk and apologizing for his over the top selfish behavior. I keep waiting for someone that claims to love Easton to drag him to rehab, but no, his dad restocks the liquor bar and continues to ignore the behavior. Harley is boring and you wait until 95% in before you get her story. The ending though, yet another cliffhanger?! This story could Havre/should have been told in one book. I feel like I wasted my time and my money on this book to get no resolution. I don't understand the hype at all.
