I borrowed this through Kindle Unlimited. It took me a while to get through it. That's never a good thing.
I guess the author is Australian, but this story takes place in California and the characters are American. A lot of the phrasing seems to be Australian. It's definitely not spoken like an American would. Some work on the punctuation would help, too. Some additional commas and quotes.
Otherwise, I liked Reid. But I didn't care for Zarley so much. Reid is SO in to her, but Zarley is somewhat callous. He basically kisses her ass and does anything to keep her, including letting a neighbor watch them have sex. After she completely freaked out about seeing Reid kiss a random woman in a club where Zarley is performing as an erotic dancer, she then has sex with him in a public park and expected him to be okay with a random guy touching her breasts and upper body during the act.
The relationship seemed unbalanced.
