The beginning felt a little awkward with a more abrupt start and stop and go flashbacks to Alex's childhood. It was hard to really connect and sympathize with him, when his background felt more like a stark rendition rather than an emotional immersion. The interactions between Alex and Kat were stiff and the transitions were a bit jarring, which hurt the flow of the story for me. I've never read this author before, so maybe her writing style isn't for me but the tone and flow didn't really work for me. Overall, Alex and Kat had some spark but I needed more depth.
