Review: Suitors


From Goodreads:
And in a city like New York you can be anyone; Kasey Matthews knows this. A freshman at NYU, she is struggling to adjust to college life while hiding her deeply troubled past.
Why did she run away from her small home town?
As Kasey rebuilds her life, a serial killer is striking at the core of The Big Apple, terrifying citizens of the city that never sleeps.
Who is killing all the suited-up men?
Detective Vincent Gunn has landed the biggest case of his career. Catching the killer is not an option; it’s a matter of life or death.
Can the NYPD and FBI bring this brutal murderer to justice?
New friends, new job, new life, new love… old nightmares. Can Kasey survive this, or will her new world in New York implode?

You read the blurb and think that this is going to be awesome. You open it on your Kindle and begin and, yeah. Not what you expected.

The idea behind the plot: An abused girl finally takes her fate into her own hands, escapes to New York and begins a new chapter. The way all that is presented in the book is entirely different. Something clicks inside the main characters head in the beginning and what follows is a chain of a bit unrealistic events. The problem is that if I reveal even the first one, it spoils the entire book. So, let's not do that.

The book is told in third person point of view. Which can make you really detached from the characters if the narration doesn't focus on getting the reader introduced to the characters. This book did not focus on that at all.

With Suitors the problem did not lie entirely in the narration style, actually, the biggest problem was the writing style. Almost every other sentence either began with the character's name or a pronoun. This style really limited the story. You couldn't get into the plot as well as you could have a bit more sentence structuring.

The sad thing is, that this book almost became my first ever Did Not Finish - book. I have never ever quit in the middle, never. But, unfortunately, on every other page I wanted to.
