You know when you start reading a book and it ticks off all the boxes in your 'ideal read' column? But then as you get farther and farther in you keep looking for that deeper connection with the characters and keep hoping (but fail) to find that 'OMG, I don't want it to end' feeling? Yeah, well that's exactly how The Restorer went for me. I so wanted this book to work for me! The premise was interesting and fresh, the protagonists intriguing, smart and a little sexy, but the execution just fell - flat. Too bad this was just an OK read.
