After reading Rumors, I finally understood what was lacking in the Luxe series. The whole series is just too fast-paced (despite each book having like 450 pages). There are some particular moments that could have been more detailed or savored, especially in this book. (Like what about the time when Elizabeth spent at California with Will? What about the struggles that Elizabeth had to do to try to meet her true love?)

I've realized now that the Luxe series aren't based only one particular character (or family, in this case). It's mainly on all the gossip in New York's fast-paced dramatic society. This book is all about news, looks, deceitfulness, drama, gossip, society, position, money, and putting on a facade.

I never recalled reading a series such as this. These series are unique (although somewhat superficial in a sophisticated way). Rumors is a little bit better (more intense) than The Luxe. But still in shock from sudden events.
