Part captivating, part irritating
Reviewed in the United States on November 15, 2018
First I’ll preface this review by saying that I did enjoy the book overall. There were parts of the story that had me hooked and I couldn’t put the book down. There is a huge tragedy scene that had me bawling my eyes out for pages upon pages, and I stayed up way later than I should have because I could not stop reading because I had to know what was going to happen, but then other scenes I almost gave up on the book entirely. I loved both male characters, Danny and Phillip, but their friendship kind of confused me. They are both charming, attractive, athletic guys who have the same girl best friend Jadyn. It is obvious that both guys have feelings for her throughout the book, and she bounced between the two, wondering what it would be like to date each one at different times throughout the span of the book, and both boys took it in stride, never getting jealous of each other or mad at her for bouncing between the two the entire book. However, I could not stand Jadyn. In the beginning of the story, she wasn’t so bad, and her antics and tantrums were normal for a young girl, and teenager, but as the book progressed into college and adulthood, it seemed as if Jadyn got even brattier, always complaining about something one of the boys did, mainly Phillip. Nothing ever seemed to be good enough for her. The ending honestly just pissed me off. The “first date” portion of the book was really sweet in my opinion, but Jadyn’s attitude toward the whole ordeal was just bitchy and very whiny ruining the ending for me. I do recommend this book if you are in the market for a clean, coming of age romance, but be prepared to be annoyed by the female lead.
