Trea’s Review of Trying Sophie:

I’d never read anything by this author before, and if I hadn’t promised to read and review this entire series, I’m not sure I would read anything else by her ever again. What was supposed to be an easy read turned into a slog of epic proportions, because this book really dragged for me! It really felt as though it was a long-ish novella that had been padded to make it a full length novel, because there was so much unnecessary detail and conflict put into the plot! Sophie was too angsty for my tastes, but I loved Declan! He really saved the book from a two star rating! The supporting characters felt awkward, and not truly a part of the story, which doesn’t work if you’re trying to set up a series! Let’s hope that the next book is better!

3 stars out of 5
