RB sucked me in from the very beginning, just as I thought I had an idea of where the story was headed we found a twist or a turn in the story. Each surprise only made me want more, long to know what was happening next. She does a wonderful job of portraying the emotions everyone was feeling. As we approach the end I felt content with where Nash and Rowan were. I am excited to see what she has in store for Evan and Chaz.
Thank you for another great book RB.
