Review: Freefall by Tess Oliver

Freefall: Alexander "Nix" Pierce and Scotlyn James

(Custom Culture #1)

Freefall (Custom Culture, #1)

After leaving high school, with a hard won diploma and the title of most likely to break hearts, Alexander "Nix" Pierce has left his wild, out of control years mostly behind him. A small inheritance from his grandfather has given him the funds to open up his tattoo shop, Freefall, and he has started to pull his life together. Aside from trying to keep his best friend, Dray, from killing himself in the fight ring, and his slight obsession with a pin-up model he's never met, Nix's life is going smoothly . . . until Scotlyn James, the object of his obsession, walks into his shop.

Ever since a tragic accident killed her family and left her alone in the world, Scotlyn James hasn't spoken one word. Up until now she didn't care that she had no way of talking to people. Her awful aunt would never have listened, and Lincoln Hammond the arrogant, selfish man who pulled her from the streets of Los Angeles wouldn't hear her words if she could speak. But when Lincoln insists she get a tattoo to cover up a scar on her side, Scotlyn meets the artist, Nix Pierce. And now she longs for her voice. Now she has found someone who will hear her.


There is nothing memorable about this book. While I was reading this book I had put it down for some sleep and when I woke in morning I had forgotten that I had even started the book. I was already halfway through at that point and I had to really sit there and think about what book I had started and what it was about. Now I know I dont have the best memory but it's not that bad. The character development was lacking which makes it hard to care about the characters or even remember them.  I don't have a clear picture of Nix or Scottlyn but i do like her name.  Scottlyn didn’t seem to have much personality and I wondered why Nix was even into her so much.  I knew he was attracted to her, but where did all the emotion come from?? And the whole ending was just like really?? That just happened, so unbelievable. There were no repercussions of what went down? That all can't happen with that neat and tidy of a wrap up. I highly doubt I’ll continue with this series which is too bad it had a lot of potential.
