Review : I am sad……Really sad…. Not because this book was horrible! Until I reached 90%, this book was just awesome! The story-line was perfect! I love the way the author intertwined bot characters -within 70 pages!!!! I was surprised, because normally it’s very difficult to connect with such a short story. Grayson and Emma are both such lovely and likeable characters- I am really looking forward to read te second book!
And now the reasons why I am so disappointed. After I reached the ~90 %, the story-line just didn’t work out for me anymore. It just felt like a totally different story for me as there was a big cut which just changed everything . Totally different scenario in a totally different situation… For sure, this is explained in the second book. But even then – the change was so abrupt that I just hoped for some more pages which could have changed my thoughts for sure… Even then I am dying to get to know what happens in the second book!
