I wanted to like this story and romance but this book seemed to be more about revenge and very hate filled. I do think that this book was different in that the narrator   talked to the reader. I did enjoy the romance between both people and at separate times. I just wished that I loved it more , but it was hate filled for me.

Wow what a fast moving book. Arcadia didn't always make the best choices during this book. I can see why she needed a break. I loved that this book had memories mixed through the story. I also loved the romance with one of the boys. This author has become an auto read for me.
