3.5 (spoilers)I have a love/hate relationship with this book. The author is obviously talented and has an amazing voice. No doubt she can spin a great story and wring every drop of emotion from your soul ( ha ha ) but I prefer to not spend my Saturday bawling my eyes out. I will be sure to read reviews before investing my emotions with this author again. Was the juice worth the squeeze? IDK if they were for me, I LOVED the characters and fell hard for them only to have some snatched away from me :( so you will have to read and find out for yourself.
