[Review] Lola by Melissa Scrivner Love

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

On a scale of gangs to guns this book is a baby on board sticker.

I did not finish this book. From the first page I knew I wouldn’t. When I read the description, I was excited. I thought the book would be fun and action packed. I found it to be slow and dreary.

I felt like the author was beating a dead horse. While the writing is vivid, it lacks the luster needed to keep readers interested. Additionally, and I know many have complained about it, the medical inaccuracies are hard to get around. Growing up in a family with doctors, it’s really hard to get past the blaring discrepancies that could have been fixed with a little research.

I had to force myself through the book and even then, I couldn’t make myself finish it. As much as I would love to pick the book back up again and have the book finished for this review, I can’t bring myself to pick it up and complete it.

I would recommend this book to fans of description, gangs, and the beautiful city of Los Angeles.
