Avid reader/reviewer and editor. I don't pull punches when I review, love it or hate it, you get what I think.
I went into this one expecting a light-hearted, fun read - more of a RomCom. While it does have its share of wit and humor, what I found was an intense story of love, loss, betrayal, family, and secrets. The story is rather lengthy, but it is wonderfully written and the author successively sucked this reader all the way in to Evie and Colton's roller coaster ride of emotion. Evie is a strong woman with plenty of wit and snark - a woman who has overcome her share of obstacles. I can't say that I always liked Colton, but he did grow on me and he and Evie are so good together. With some 'Holy Moly' twists and a Cinderella-ish romance, this one's a winner.
