It had a good crime/suspense part, although a bit confusing. The cases seemed to be over-lapping and it sometimes came across as sloppy.
The love story was ok. For me it was rather bland, though both MCs were likable.
It was a little sudden - the whole falling for each other. I'd imagine that guys with issues wouldn't fall so fast and hard and throw all their concerns over board...
The world-building was confusing to me too -until I saw, that this is the second installment (I haven't read the first one).
Nice enough, but not a series I will follow.
