This book is awful and reads like a first book except it isn't!

Ever heard them say in English class or a creative writing class, show don't tell? Well all I got out of the first few pages of this book was Ms Miller telling me WAY too much information - background information that I don't think I really need to know at all in the first chapter of a book, whether it be a series featuring some of the people featured in the background information or not.
This book reads like a first published book, or one where the author simply phoned it in.
Seriously, do not buy this book, go to your public library and borrow it and then come back here and thank me for saving you the money.
Linda Lael Miller has written some great books which begs the question, what the heck went wrong with this one? I honestly wondered if she even wrote it, or if someone ghost wrote it and they put her name on it because I couldn't believe this was written by her.
Apparently the other books in the series get better, but I think I will borrow those too from the library now myself.
Ms Miller, or anyone connected to her, please tell her re-read the book herself - the writing and word usage and over-description is bad enough, the plot is average at best and honestly, the protagonists don't have much chemistry at all - other than the words she puts down on paper which don't make chemistry - the characters, if they feel real to us readers, make the chemistry!
This is officially the first book I have returned on Kindle - apparently you have 6 days from the day of purchase to get your money back - heck yes, I did it, no one should profit from this poorly conceived novel!
