My Review

I loved the story line of this book, the idea that Eve had a daughter before Eve sinned was really neat Eve's daughter knows no sin and there for can not sin.
I really did like the story, and it would get 5 out of 5 stars but, sadly, that isn't going to be what I'm rating this book.
My Rating: 1 out of 5 stars
I wanted to like this book so much... I actually finished it, even though half way I wanted to put down the book. I felt like I wouldn't be fair to the author not reading the whole book. I loved the whole idea of it, it was really interesting.
 I love the concept of it and it would be given 5 stars if the language and sexual content wasn't off the charts. 105 words? seriously? I'm sure teenagers have pretty filthy mouths but shouldn't books be teaching them this isn't cool? And the sexual content, lets not go there. Not to mention attempted rape. and dog got killed, that took away one star for sure. 

What really did it in for me was the language, I had to take a break from the book because it felt like it was too much.
If you don't care about any of this stuff then try the book.
Sexual Content: Very Heavy.
Lanuage: Heavy, 105 words.
Violence: Heavy.
Thanks to NetGalley for allowing me to review this book.
