Rogue Chronicles Entry No. 128
This let me down just a bit. Brooke and Jett started out to be so amazing characters, but in this they could be simply filed away under Badass Alpha Male and Damsel in Distress. *le sigh*
Brooke was way too depended on him, like she lost herself when she opened up to thim; and she made alot of stupid-ass decisions in this last installment, trying to be strong although she is afraid of freaking everything. It was like she wasn't even the same person anymore... Jett was too unfazed one time, then a total sap the next, perfectly two-faced with absolutely no flaw although J.C. Reed trying to make it look like he wasn't all that perfect. Didn't stick, he felt totally wrong to me in this last installment, too.
And together, boy, they were in an unhealthy relationship of the kind that rivals 50 Shades and Twilight. It was a hot relationship, granted, but not in a way that would make up for it. The wicked didn't stick to Brooke the same way that the imperfections didn't stick to Jett, and the combination didn't rock any way you sliced it, not compared to the first two books.
Plotwise, it was pretty good. It had some nice action, good suspense, and an unraveling that you didn't expect. However, it also felt forced at points, because Brooke was just too much of a scaredy cat. It read like she was already damaged enough to be shipped off into a mental institution, which totally spoiled the good plot parts. Then she was a crybaby, and after that she acted totally badass. And you just can't chalk all of that craziness up to hormones, no way.
To sum it up, it was a mess. It read okay in its parts, but the overall picture ruined the last installment, and thus basically the trilogy. Meh.
