** I was given this book free, via Netgalley, in exchange of an honest review
** I give this book 3.75 out of 5 stars*
I enjoyed this book, I loved Maggie, I felt like she was a very relatable character. I feel like that may be how many women may feel when having a blended family. Being a step mom, and a step child is no simple task. I really had such an issue with Nico’s family, and a very hard time reading from Lara’s perspective.
I was able to predict how the book would end, but it was still very enjoyable to read. I actually woke up in the middle of the night, and couldn’t sleep, so I finished the book. It’s going to be one of those books that just sticks with me. And I think the ending was wrapped up extremely well, and I love how each character got the ending they deserved.
