2 Star #Review #Giveaway of In a Split Second (Split Second #1) by Sophie McKenzie

Two lives. One explosive moment. And a secret that could end it all... A riveting, romantic thriller from the author of Girl, Missing.

Charlie’s life is torn apart by a terrorist bomb in a London market. Months later, she meets Nat, whose family was devastated by the same explosion. But as Charlie gets closer to Nat she uncovers secrets and a whole cast of shady characters that lead her to believe Nat knows more about the attack than he is letting on. In a Split Second is a breathtaking thriller that shifts between the perspectives of its two main characters as their courage and their loyalties are tested to the limit.

I tried so hard to love this book.  This one really reminded me of a book called BlackOut by Robinson Wells but where that one had some yummy plot twists and well a paranormal aspect.  In a Split Second was bogged down by a lot of gilt and well just ended up being boring. 

The characters didnt work for me and well I would have loved to learn more about the world they lived in.  There was no mystery in the book as you know who the bad guy is. So this one just didnt work for me.
