Hidden Wings started out great for me. Emma was in a car accident and she was the only survivor. She found out she had an Aunt living in Alaska who wanted her to come and live with her. And then things went rapidly downhill for me.
Emma pissed me off so freaking much it was unreal. Her parents had just died and she'd been left alone, but the second a hot guy enters the picture she pretty much forgets all of this and only thinks about it every other chapter. I mean, COME ON! How is that realistic?! If my parents died in a car crash and I survived, I'd be a complete wreck! No hot guy would be able to distract me from that pain, so I just couldn't take her seriously. She was so damn naive and stupid and I wanted to hit her so bad.
Enter Kade. The extremely hot guy who makes Emma's knees weak and makes her forget her parents just died. Excuse me while I vomit. Kade was a nice enough guy, but that whole insta-love thing bugged me so much, Before they'd even met Emma was having reactions to his presence. When they touched there was electricity, they wanted to jump each other every time they touched or were near each other and it just made me laugh. How am I supposed to take that seriously? Really?
The storyline was ridiculous and I'll put my hand up and admit that I skim read the last 50% because I really couldn't be bothered anymore. There were some extremely predictable twists that I'd guessed pretty much as soon as Emma arrived in Alaska but they weren't revealed until the end. Emma and Kade's relationship got even more ridiculous and I just couldn't take it anymore.
If it wasn't for the fact that I'm trying to catch up on my Netgalley books and that I'm determined to finish them all, I would have DNF'd this book. It was that bad.
Overall, this book definitely wasn't my cup of tea. I couldn't deal with the cheesy insta-love and the extremely predictable plot. I definitely won't be continuing with this series.
