This is my first read by this author and I really loved it! It had twists I didn't see coming and I fell for the characters completely.
With how many books I read it takes a lot for an author to really surprise me and this author really managed to put me through the ringer with this read. The writing was great and the plot absolutely was unique and captivating.
The book centered around the Boston Marathon Bombing so it definitely had its dark aspects, but he romance in this Brough this novel together beautifully. It was violent in a true way and remembering this actually happening draws the reader in and connects you to the characters in a real way. Bravo for a great book with a fantastic twist at the end.
