An average read This is not my first Haley Randolph book I m not so sure that it won t be the last, however Like in previous books in the series, continuity and proofreading seem to be an issue This time, however, I even caught switches from first person to third person It makes it hard to keep up with the story. Ok so I really didn t enjoy this book for many reasons The first being all of the descriptive hyphenated run on phrases on every page Also, wasn t there some traumatic stuff that happened to here and all she could do was swoon over 4 5 guys Horrible horrible book Do not recommend.
