I don't know why, but I am fascinated by novels about gangs. Probs my least fave of the Fuentes brother companion novels (this is the third), but it kept my attention the whole time, so that has to count for something. Also, Elkeles writes one hell of a love scene, I'll give her that.
I just had some hangups with this one. Not nearly enough Carlos/Kiara and what was in didn't quite ring true. The cover is a scene that is not even a main scene in the book (at least not as major as some of the other ones). And what was with the epilogue? It reminded me of the Harry Potter epilogue. "They all got old and married and had kids (REPEAT CYCLE)."
Maybe I need a nap.
