Leaving Paradise

Leaving Paradise - Simone Elkeles Honestly, I'm disappointed. A lot.
The beginning of the book was great, promising, everything was developing smoothly. The writing style was normal, readable and it was easy following the plot. But then came the scenes in which Caleb and Maggie interact with each other, again the beginning was cute, their chemistry obvious. Then somehow everything fell apart. The dialogue between C an M became strained, their encounters not romantic (or natural, I think natural is the better word)in any way. The main characters reconnected in a surprisingly short amount of time. All was forgiven but not forgotten.
I expected more, much more from Simone Elkeles. I loved the Perfect Chemistry trilogy and this book began on the same note. Except then unlike the Perfect Chemistry the book started losing the rhythm of readable writing (if that makes any sense). It seems as if at some point the author got bored with this book-but she had to keep on writing because of the deal with the publisher-so she just wrote the most obvious things. She didn't even try to camouflage the simply written sentences.
