I honestly didn't expect to like this book as much as I did. It's just that I'm slowly learning to take the GR ratings with a grain of salt. So imagine my surprise the way it grabbed me.
I would have finished it sooner but I had to give myself a few hours break in between just to not get too swept by the angst. And that's how I know how much I like it, the fact I plowed thru it regardless of all that intensity.
And I like this book enough that I forgot the fact that this is supposedly a NA book (which I'm not a big fan of, but not really sure if it's really NA), that I didn't care that the H is a fighter (again, not a big fan), that I didn't get overly annoyed at the h esp in that one pivotal scene, that I could overlook how the H's condition was, in a way, romanticized which makes it really dangerous if we're talking real life, and that I didn't even mind some of the repetitive lines and some tiny editing issues here and there. Bottom line, it grabbed me, and the H made me swoooooon LOL
For a debut novel, well done, Ms. Evans! (To the other new writers out there in this genre, this is how you do it, that's all I'm saying...)
