(forgive me for conjuring up such a sloppy review.)
Cover Up is an admittedly beautiful story art wise, however, it lacks in almost every other departmet.
The story begins with a very promising premise, a young tattoo artist temporarily flees his abusive ex partner and finds a man of which perks his interest. This is all fine and dandy until you reach the 10-15 chapter mark where you can tell that the author simply wants to end the story. The main events get repetitive and the writing becomes rushed and almost unfinished., some of the chapters simply stop meshing together decently, and it just becomes all around confusing.
There is so little focus on any characters but the MC and it just gets really exhausting. The same topics constantly get brought up over and over again when justifying any other person's actions.
The most prominant thing that really killed the entire book for me was how lightly rape was taken. As a victim of those vile actions, it hurt when the author just pushed it aside for the sake of "love" or even the slightest of hate. The author only really showed how negetive it is when it came to the antagonist. There was really no need for so much of it in the book, if anything, the repeated sexual assault only really weakened the "happily ever after" that we were given.
