My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: I read the synopsis and was immediately interested in reading this novel. It took me a few pages to get in the novel, but this was a hard book to stay away from. When I wasn't reading the book, I was thinking about it and constantly wondering what direction the book was going to go.

I loved the characters, the plot, and the premise of this novel. And overall throughout the novel, I really enjoyed the writing style. There were only a few moments where I had a disconnect, but most of the time I was connected to the novel on an intense level.

This novel involved a love triangle that was so frustrating and yet so irresistible. How do you fully commit to a relationship when every time you close your eyes you see your dream guy?

I loved that we got to know more about the characters as the novel went. Even though in some places I might have liked to gain more insight to the novel, for the most part I really enjoyed just getting to know the characters at their own pace. I felt that reflected their personalities really well.

Sterling's novel is an intriguing start to this series and I will definitely stay tuned in.

In Summary: An intriguing premise mixed in with lovable characters and a love triangle that is bound to keep people hooked.

Warnings/ Side-notes: I can't really think of anything that people might find offensive.

The Wrap-up: A great novel that I really enjoyed reading. I was entertained and all admit so wrapped in the love triangle that at times it was absolutely comical.

Love,

Danica Page
