    I didn t get too far into this book There was as far as I read one instance of the F word, and then a bit later it got a little too sexual for me I don t know if anything actually happened, but the description of his arousal was not something I wanted to read.As for the book itself In some ways it was a little boring to read, as Heck kind of just goes with the flow and doesn t seem to have much of a personality, and there s not a ton that happens in the first thirty pages However, once I I didn t get too far into this book There was as far as I read one instance of the F word, and then a bi...
