On the run from the Organization, Starr never planned on falling in love.
Starr Bishop’s the complete package. A perfect smile, brains to match, and a winning attitude. Boys want to date her and girls want to be her. She’s the type of girl you want to hate, if only she wasn’t so damn likable. But don’t worry, she’s not interested in your boyfriend. Boys are one complication she can live without.
When the Organization decides she’s not only the model student but the ideal assassin, Starr’ll need a lot more than high test scores and extracurricular involvement to get herself out of that commitment.
Dark, moody, and dead sexy Christian Evergood is the last person she’d expect—or even want— to come to her rescue. From opposite ends of Webster High’s social hierarchy, their lives collide in one electrifying moment. Christian isn’t the Goth loner he pretends to be, he’s a part Cherokee, All-American boy who wants to be a hero, Starr’s hero. Christian makes Starr forget that the Organization is after her, but nothing will stop the Organization from collecting their top recruit.
By the way, the spot for junior class president just became available.
WHAT I THINK
First of all, never mind my opinion on this book, I want to thank the author for providing me this book in exchange of an honest review!
“You will take physical exams this afternoon at our headquarters. We will leave via helicopters in about an hour.” Without another word, he pulls out a chair from the desk and sits down. Physical? Helicopters? Headquarters? What type of leadership exam is this? Something doesn’t add up.
I was really intrigued by the synopsis of this book and then there’s all those praising reviews about it too! I truly thought that I’d enjoy this and to be honest, I really wanted to like this. At some point while reading and sighing and pushing myself through this, I started to feel bad. What is wrong with me? Everyone else loved this and enjoyed reading this and then there’s me who doesn’t enjoy it at all, who feels the slump creeping towards me while reading. But we all have our own opinions and the books we like and don’t like.
At the beginning, I really liked Starr and truly saw the potential assassin in her. She managed to escape from the exam building without getting caught by the Organization, she survived. But then came Christian, the oh so handsome and drool worthy guy who sends electricity through her every time they touch. After that Starr became quite annoying. I most definitely couldn’t see her taking care of herself anymore and definitely not as someone who’d take down the Organization.
And Christian? Do not like him at all, not even a little bit. To me, he seems to be too ruling over Starr it’s almost like abusive behavior toward her. Can’t imagine myself thinking someone like Christian as my Guardian Angel.
The romance? Not feeling it at all. And besides it felt like most of the book was about these two just swooning over each others without any care of the world until one day the Organization just happens to question Christian and that’s it, nothing else happened. After that they were back at swooning over each others.
And I still can’t figure out the reason for Starr’s grandparents in this book. What exactly is their purpose in this one? I don’t know if there’s some deeper meaning for them to be in it at the next two books but at least in this one I think it was just a waste of pages. Without any meaning they just popped up for a minute to lock Starr in and then puff, nothing about them anymore. Like why, why are they mentioned?
There were some good points in there too. Not saying it was all bad. Those good points are the start with the exam and reveals and then some happenings in the middle of the book. But there really weren’t more than two-three points when I actually got excited and then those were gone and I was back at the creeping slump. And for that it’ll be only 2.5 stars and I don’t think I’ll even be continuing with this trilogy.
