I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
Well, I know others aren’t going to like this review, but I’m here to give my honest review. So here goes…
Drama, dysfunctional, overwhelming sub-plots, stereotypical characters, crashing ending and just not something I found promising at all. I really hoped for a warmer story, but with the jumping between times, characters fighting, their issues, regrets, secrets, and basically overall chaos of the story-line, I ended up not liking this book at all and struggled to finish it.
I expected more from Lulu Taylor.
