This book and I were not Clicking...

Clicking - Alex Gale

Sometimes, you can tell a book from the cover. What is even going on there? The composition makes no sense. It's clearly just three different photos cut and pasted over a cloudy background (why clouds?) to give the illusion they have something to do with each other. It's a horrible cover. What's waiting inside is just as cut and pasted together, unfortunately, which is a shame because the first 40% or so is really good. The set up is solid and cute with a lot of promise, but it devolves into the same "too much telling, not enough showing" issue that a lot of short stories have. Throw in some unnecessary drama, paparazzi scum, homophobic grandparents who put the Westboro Church to shame, and an insta-relationship (one non-date with sex and the guys are basically already living together), and this story went downhill fast.
