Where do I begin? I’ve loved everything Marie has ever written, and she shows that she is so diverse in what she can write about.

Addie and Axton were such unique characters that had such different personalities. It’s those things that really draw you in. We immediately found out some very interesting and unique things about Addie at the beginning of this book and it made us look at her in a different light. These things also are what make her relationship with Axton so interesting. Axton is your typical musician with the sex, drugs and rock & roll mindset, except for him it’s country. He’s the boy that every girl wants and that every girl falls to the feet of, but Addie. That is something I admired, he liked Addie for who she was and what she stood for. Yes, he was the typical guy with the “challenge” attitude, but it was so much more than that. Their while relationship throughout this book was “so much more than that.” Everything was so in depth and really made you want more.
Per the usual, emotions ran high and varied throughout this book. There were moments I cried, laughed, was angry, was laughing, all of the above! MJ is so good at this! She really knows how to make her characters “real” to her readers. Another amazing book by her and I can’t wait to see what’s next!
