** spoiler alert ** There was a good concept here, but for me that got buried under all of the mess.

Complaints:
-Everyone was really catty and mean to each other pretty much all the time
-Too much drama (adding in the Ben told Luke to break up with Mina at the end, for example, was unnecessary)
-Luke was pretty much the worst
-For a one dimensional terrible mean girl, the mean girl apologizing re Ella was not awesome
-I didn't care much for any of the characters, including Ben and Mina
-The fact that Luke and Ella sort of got their own happy ending was pretty much what sold the one star rating for me. By the end of the book, I needed them to be unhappy and not married instead of (presumably/eventually) unhappy and married
-The drowning incident
-The poor writing and weird POV switches (that sometimes even started mid paragraph)

I am plotting in my head how to redo this as the romcom I deserve.
