's review

really liked it


I don't know where to start so I'll start with "what in the actual fuck just happened?"

It's so hard to review this book without giving too much away.

It begins as your usual man meets woman and suddenly they're in love the next chapter. However, nothing in this story is what it seems.

As seems to be the trend of late, the story is told in alternating chapters through the eyes of Poppy and Noah. I hated Poppy, she's weak and annoying and although she's in her 30's, the writing felt more like she was a teenager.

I almost gave up on this book as the first half is the typical alpha male/damsel in distress storyline and, in my opinion, this carries on for far too long. I understand why the author did this now that I'm finished with the book but it was still offputting. Then a huge curveball is thrown in that makes you completely forget any misgivings you had about the first half. A curveball of such epic proportions it'll have you questioning your entire life. And then yet another twist tossed in just for good measure. Totally did not see either one of them coming.

A fun read with a unique twist.

FYI - This is a Kindle Unlimited book.
