My Rating

My review

I was quite shocked to learn that this was Billy Jolie’s first book! Edgy, fierce and dark I was completely blown away by this story. The flow of the book was easy to follow and the buildup to the conclusion was intense. This is not a book that’s easy to set aside for more than a few minutes. I was easily drawn into the character’s dramatic lives and found myself loving and hating them alternately. I get kind of tired of reading supposedly suspenseful books that almost always have happy ever after endings. This definitely is not a happy every after and honestly that was refreshing.

  1. This book is so on my TBR pile as well. Very nice to know this book doesnt fall into the happy ever after ending like a lot of them do. Its refreshing to a have a book that differs from the rest. Cant wait to read this one.

  2. I just started reading this book and your review just makes me even more excited to keep on reading it. I am especially looking forward to not everything ending up happily ever after. I think a lot of books cheat themselves out of being completely profound and life-changing just because of someone's need to end everything with it all being okay and happy. Life is not always okay and happy, and there are some situations that will not work out–and that's fine!
