I don't really know what I was expecting from this. I followed the entire publication of this book and was so ecstatic to read it. I saw so many reviews boasting about this and that got me even more excited. Don't get me wrong, I liked it. I just couldn't connect enough to actually care sometimes.

And it's all Rachel's fault.

She drove me up the wall. She is one of those characters who are to good for anyone to feel pity for them. And I just really don't like that in a character. Not accepting someones "pity stare" does not make you any less stronger. Her feelings changed with the wind on any subject.

Logan was another storm altogether. I actually really like him. But like Rachel, his feelings changed minute to minute. (I just really couldn't get past that!) He was also was somewhat controlling. I realize that he was her protector, but some of his words took it a step to far.

Now I admit, I got teary eyed a few times. The romance was sweet, and the story line was actually really interesting.

But, I was underwhelmed.
