Never caught but still running...away

Caught Running - Abigail Roux

If it looks like an infodump and if it walks like an infodump it is an infodump.


I do love the trope, but I hate the writing. I hated it in their Cut & Run books and I hate it here. It's disjointed despite logical progression of the story and the constant switching from two different points of view (clearly written by two different authors) makes it seem like the characters share a mind and are repeating some things over and over.


Such a shame, not really.


I'm DNFing on page 13 because the most important thing about becoming an assistant coach to a high school baseball team is to dress for the part. I smell gratuitous UST building ahead.
