Review

I don’t really know what to make of this book. I enjoyed the story and the plot, the characters struggles to overcome their past differences but I just couldn’t get into it so much as I was hoping for.

The main thing was that I just couldn’t connect with the heroine, Lola. There was just something about her that just wasn’t working for me. I was really wishing she would decided about who she wanted to be. At the start of the book she came across as a strong woman who has conquered her past and then the next chapter she is scared little Hannah again. It some parts it was hard to follow which personality she really wanted to be.

I did enjoy Blue. He was a little different to some other characters. But sometimes I was wishing he would date someone else. It felt like he wasn’t getting his equal in Hannah. I guess you can’t choose who you love in the end.

I’m happy that they finally got together, but maybe not happy with how they went about it.
