I don’t think I have been pulled in so many different directions and experienced so many emotions while reading a book in my life. This series has effectively destroyed me.
I’ve literally been sitting here staring at my keyboard and trying to think of what to say to properly express my thoughts about this book. I just can’t do it. I was ripped apart and then put back together.
Caleb and Olivia had one hell of a story. Two people shouldn’t have to go through so much heartbreak, drama, and flat out bullshit just to be together. I appreciated the continued use of the present and past views in this book. It was able to fill in some things that I had questions about from the last book. It also continued to add an amazing sense of suspense and intrigue to the story. There was a point when I was nearing the end of the book that my heart was pounding. You could practically picture the climax of the story approaching, the pacing of the book picked up, and then all hell broke loose.
That tiny amount of sympathy that I had for Leah in Dirty Red? Yeah, that went straight out the window in this book. I can see how why everyone hates her. You can add me to that list now. I got a great deal of satisfaction with one certain interaction between Leah and Olivia.
In the end, I was happy with the way the story turned out and how everything came together. I just feel bad that the journey was so long and painful for Caleb and Olivia.
