Uber with great character development. However, I enjoyed fanfiction version more than published work.

I was trying to really like this book the whole time.
Kept waiting ... to settle into a rhythm... to take me to that special 'suspend disbelief' place, but ended up feeling the plot was choppy and unfocused. I found that the length of the book (which I usually long for) was not really helping the story. To me, this book could be a lot more powerful if it was shorter and highlighted a smaller number of events to really shape the story.

I liked the lead characters, though Alex's past was a bit over

Excellent!

This book has everything. Great story, great characters, love, heartbreak, but most of all the human ability to persevere. The author captures you from the first to the last word. It's a rollercoaster of emotions. Very well written. Well worth six stars if I'm honest. Enjoy.

Great book with good developed characters that leave you wanting to learn more about them. The story line was great and with other minor story lines weaved in well which added to the character. This helped it seem more based in reality then in fiction. Love it and intend on reading the sequel.

Got it just to have something to read, and couldn't put it down. Loved the characters, the suspense and loved to hate Dana. I am hoping there will be a sequel.
