Weak Male and Female Leads. I finished this book, but it was a struggle. I doubt I will read the 2nd one. I just felt zero connection whatsoever to either Fable or Drew and their budding romance/love seemed awkward, odd and did not really ring true to me. As well, I guess fairly quickly what his deep dark secret was, as well as the sub plot 'secret'. The Author dropped enough hints to make it fairly obvious.
