    3.5/5 I had a love hate relationship with this book. I was in

    I had a love hate relationship with this book. I was in love with the writing and the whole story about 70/80% of it's entirety. The ending 20/30% killed it for me.

    The beginning of the story is written beautifully. I love how our MC, Blythe thinks and how her feelings are describe. I love the scene where she meet Chris Shepherd. The middle was not as good, but the characters are ones you can't help but love. You become involved with each one's story and pull for them all.

    I fell in love with Blythe and Chris, and really loved them together. Well I loved everything but how creepy quick they loved each other. That was a little much for my tastes. Besides that, they really help make each stronger, and I love how their stories fit together, even it was a bit over the top and predictable. They are both very relate able characters, and you want to cry, laugh, and even hug them at times.

    The ending of the book to me, felt like it was written by a completely different person. Some of the events that occur were a little too soap opera like for me to enjoy or believe. It went from a very beautifully written story to a rushed one and like that of most new adult books. There is just so much drama that it gets old. Some of the scenes and lines were so corny I just wanted to DNF it right there because of it! It bothered me so bad that I couldn't give it more then a 3.5.

    If you like New Adult, this is one to check out. I now plan on reading other books written by Jessica Park because of how much I loved the first 2/3ish of the book. I am curious to read more of what others thought as well. I have read a lot of mixed reviews, so you might just be another person who loves it. It just ended up falling way short for me.
