Strike a Poser by Dylan Edward Asher

Strike a PoserStrike a Poser by Dylan Edward Asher
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Olivia is a con-artist, she and her current accomplice, Jillian, have set up a big score in Olivia’s old city of Orlando. Olivia needs to find some help for her current con so she visits her old flame Jack and enlists him and his brother to help. Olivia has completely scripted the entire con but of course anything that can go wrong certainly will.

Unfortunately Strike a Poser just wasn’t for me. The story has a lot of potential to really grab a reader but there just wasn’t enough depth to the story or characters for my taste. There’s not much of a background on anyone other Olivia and Jack dating fifteen years prior and when the con gets going it never really gets explained what the plan will be but you just get tossed into it happening. A part of it got a little confusing even following as it started switching back and forth between what was currently going on and the team setting up the con the day before.

Also, I’m one that doesn’t really care if a story has explicit language but only to a point. The characters in here and the f this, f that type and it got completely annoying even to me. To me, if you cuss every other word you’re just showing how unintelligent you are but maybe this would be why the lack of depth to the characters, there just wasn’t any to write about if their language is any indication.

Overall, not much depth to it, unfortunately I wouldn’t recommend this one.

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