Review ~ Bait (Wake #1) by M. Mabie

Bait (Wake, #1)
ebook downloaded via Amazon for free.
  Release Date: October 13th 2014

Publisher: Self-published

He was trouble from the start, but I couldn't resist.
She was the best kind of trouble. The kind that was so wrong, it felt right.

I’ve tried and failed to stay away from him.
I’ve done everything in my power to make her mine and keep her.

He’s almost impossible to say no to.
She never tells me yes.

We’re always fighting.
When we’re not fighting, we’re… well… making up.

He makes me laugh so hard.
I miss her laugh the most.

I'm a liar.
She knows the truth, but won’t admit it.

Sometimes, I wish I'd never met him.
I wish we could meet all over again. I'd do better.

His girlfriend knows.
The guy she’s with is a fool.

I’ll never love anyone like I love him.
She doesn’t love me enough to choose us.

It was the wrong place.
It was the wrong time.

It should have been him.
It will always be her.

This book contains adult situations and is recommended for adult readers.

My Opinion

I'm going to keep this short.

Reads about cheating aren't usually my thing, especially when that's the entire plot. However, this author is attending a signing I'm going to and Bait was free so I thought I'd give it a go.

Whilst I ended up reading until the end, this wasn't a book I could love. Something about it made me read on--it reminded me of a car crash, you know what's coming and you know you're not going to like it but you look anyway. That's the feeling Bait gave me.

I couldn't root for the love interest between Casey and Blake, and I couldn't like Blake. To me she was a selfish asshole with no backbone. I can handle small cheating, but Blake never grew. She was weak in my eyes and the whole thing went on way too long. You don't hear much about Grant, yet you still feel for him. He was the only character I felt anything for. It was all kind of twisted and a hard book to like for that reason. I can't root for a main character who does what Blake does.

Overall, it's one of those reads I kept reading out of morbid curiosity. I couldn't like the characters or the situation, but the writing was good.
