I loved the book. What made me like it more was a few snarky reviews. I love when people write really negative and have no clue what they are talking about. If you read this book like I did, you would love it. The entire Gracie saga was scary, real, and happens a lot. Gracie is innocence! Noah, well she fell hard for him. The best parts of the book where going on in Gracie’s head. She tried to convince herself that Noah was not a turd. She tried over and over to justify things he did and said. Actions speak louder than words. Noah said it all but underneath he was a turd.
I want nothing more at this time than to tell you what happened about 70% through. I can’t but I will say for the ignorant people who said bad things about Gracie, have never been in love. She was broken down by Noah in the worst way. If you know someone like her, a good friend who fell for the frat boy and just wanted that so bad she would do anything for him. She listened to each lie and when it all unfolds WOW it is awesome. I am still stunned at what his actions did to her. When Jake, who was Noah’s former roommate is involved because he has Gracie’s back. You will be stunned. Poor Jake can’t watch this train wreck any longer. It goes to show how some guys stick together and some are outstanding! Jake was so outstanding!
Bravo to the author for the REAL aspect. I loved this book and I hope you will too.

“Writing is my way of making sense of the world. When I give my characters life on the pages I write, it frees up space in my mind to welcome in new stories that are begging to be told,” says Brownlow
