This story is actually one of the most difficult for me to write a review, not because it was too revealing (you know what I mean, remember the fifty shades of grey? Haha lol). But because I’m so distracted that I find myself rereading my favorite scenes from the story. That good eh? Well, this book was really great. I love that even if I am just reading its first chapter, it already caught my attention. Or should I say, it’s too romantic that I can’t help myself but be giddy, to the extent that I almost scream haha lol.

And just like the author’s other stories, this one also has some lessons that we could all ponder to. Romance with values or lessoned induced stories is somewhat my thing now eh? I can’t even will myself to read other stories because I think I am still having a hangover lol.

Honestly, the story’s plot isn’t that new to me. I’ve read and watched movies with the same plot so when I was in the part where the main characters were introduced, I kinda expected how this story would go. But to my surprise all of the things I’ve expected didn’t happen at all, quite the turn out of the events actually. It just happens so fast that I didn’t see it coming. So yeah, I guess it’ll be safe to say that this story is quite unpredictable at all. The only concern I have about this book is the way these two main characters were able to reveal their feelings for each other. It wasn’t that bad at all, but I just think all stories or maybe most stories have that same analogy and I really don’t like it. 

Just like most of Moseley’s other books, this one didn’t have that hard to understand words or phrases, so tucking a dictionary with you wouldn’t be necessary at all. This story only has a few characters so they’re so easy to keep track of. The only complaint I have for Emma’s (main female) character is that she easily jumps to conclusions which always turned out hurting her own feelings. But I still adore her character because she was able to provide for her daughter and her little brother for such an early age. She’s just 16 when she started supporting herself! For Carson, well, at first, I was really in the verge of falling for him, actually I think I did as early as its second chapter (and I really thought he could be a great addition to my book crushes), but right after when I got to the conflict part, I was heartbroken. Like he just shattered my dream man into bits and I really hate him for that. But as I read on, I just found myself aching for him (haha, I just sounded like I am Emma in this story eh? Lol). But still, he’s not worthy to be added to my book crushes list, because he just broke my heart!

I also love the fact that the author didn’t add a b*tch third party in this story, because usually when that happened, I easily get carried away and all I want is to wish myself to get inside the story and kill that b*tch myself. Haha, I’m not really that fan of a third party b*tch but I find it amusing for a third party j*rks haha.

I really wanted to give this story a 5-star rating, but there’s something telling me that it isn’t enough, that the story isn’t enough when you compare it to the previous books I’ve read from her which was the Free Falling. That book really left me with a terrible hangover, this one though still has that effect on me but not as terrible as the latter.

My overall experience with this book was really awesome and it is highly recommended. If you happen to already read it, please feel free to share through the comments section below, *wink.

At first I wasn’t sure if you hated this book or loved it… I’m glad you liked it. 😀 I honestly don’t think it would be for me, because it sounds a little too heavy for me. I’d also probably get annoyed with the protagonist a lot, if she is one of those to jump to conclusions like that. But that’s okay! New Adult romance novels are hit-or-miss for me, most of the time a miss.

Great review! =)

Yeah, protagonist that always jumps to conclusions are sometimes annoying. But surprisingly for this one, it wasn’t that bad 🙂

I really do love a unpredictable romance and I like the set up of this story. Haven’t read many romances with pole dancing.

It’s kinda hot really, but still a little bit conservative 🙂
