this book focuses on Jacey Vincent (friend of Madison's and Gabe's sister), with the hottest Hollywood bad boy Dominic Kinkaide. Well, as you could exthis book focuses on Jacey Vincent (friend of Madison's and Gabe's sister), with the hottest Hollywood bad boy Dominic Kinkaide. Well, as you could expect (if you read If You Stay and If You Leave), both of them are messed up. Jacey has trust issues and she tends to attract the wrong kind of males. Once, her bad choices lead to the death of a friend. Jacey knows she's very attracted to Dom, but she also knows that Dom might not be a good choice and a bad boy through and through.
And Dominic is, well, kinky. But his kinkiness is hiding something deeper and darker that shaped his life when he was just a teenager. His guilt now colors everything he does and his behaviors. Somewhere inside him, he realizes he's not good for Jacey, but he can't resist her and soon he finds himself fall for Jacey.
It's full of angst and drama, but somehow I was cool with everything. Yes, I found myself wanting to kick both Jacey and Dom, but every emotional roller coaster I went through in reading this book is worth it with their end of journey. I just dislike Jacey a bit, compared to Mila and Maddy.

So where to start? There are many wonderful things about this book. This book, to put it simply, is extraordinary. I rarely got a chance to read something based on Islamic beliefs. However, in this book, Rania is a Muslimah and Adam is an atheist, so there is journey for Adam to find his belief in God. Because of Rania, he starts to admit that God exists. But secrets from their pasts haunt them, and Rania might be a tad difficult to seduce and romance, because, well, her belief.
I liked the plot. Liked how Rania and Adam get to communicate. Both Rania and Adam can be awfully stubborn, partly because Adam is rich and can do whatever he wants. While Rania is used to independence. The beautiful part is that Ms. Ahsan puts on her (our) religious views in a story without being patronizing. She doesn't force on anything and everything related to Islam there opened my eyes in a way that I didn't even expected. Simple explanations about our religious belief, and I honestly like the religious parts, because sometimes I got uncomfortable. Not that I'm uptight or anything--hell, no. Just that this book has a way to say things without being too obvious, and the principles actually can be applied to another religions too.
About the story itself, there are supernatural stuffs, romance, and mystery. There are also gentle loving between both of them, a strong friendship, and plain beautiful relationship. There are to POVs here, both from Rania's and Adam's. So I can figure out what's going on with their heads, and it's a good feeling. I really envy Rania, haha. Now, if only I can snag myself an Adam.
One of the most beautiful love story I read this year. But I didn't give 4 stars because reading the book is like a work for me and I take two weeks because sometimes, I need to go back a page and re-read again. Maybe because I didn't really concentrate on reading, so I didn't get to understand a few stuffs (minor, but bugged me out all the same). And maybe, after re-reading this book and not so high after the vacation rush and all those new-adult contemporary romances I stacked on my e-reader, I'll enjoy the book more. But needless to say, now I'm itching for book two....more
