WHIPLASH!!!
That's what I got from the ending of this book! It was a plot twist I never could have imagined!
Overall, I liked the characters, the pacing of the story was good, and the ending was most definitely creative! But the romance between Rachel and Johnny just never connected for me, thus the four-star rating. It just felt a bit rushed, or contrived, and it felt like there were gigantic timeskips in the development of their relationship. They're awkward and uncomfortable around each other. . . . OH HEY, two days later, and they're tearing each others' clothes off! But the writing is so lovely, and the plot so intriguing, that the book still gets a hearty four stars.
