If you asked me half way through this, I probably would of rated only 2 stars but when I was finished I realised just how good it was. There was obvious plot points that did not agree with me - if anyone knows me and have read this, they will know exactly what I am talking about, but this book left me exhausted in the best kind of way.
I spent my time reading this surrounded by people giving me worrying glances. If I wasn't fanning myself (ODAMNHOT!), I was shaking with the power of it, or I was laughing out loud or smiling like a loon - and even crying like a baby at some points. This was a roller coaster ride of emotions in a book that surprised me.
As I was reading this I felt there was way too much sex, nearly every event was followed by it and it became tiresome near the end, so tiresome that I skipped a lot. Other than that the obvious plot line I hated, but that wasn't the fault of the author and in a way seemed to bring the story together even more. I, also, normally like to watch a relationship develop and all the UST that goes with it but in this we watch a relationship grow, fall apart and get back together even stronger!
I can't recommend this highly enough - but don't expect a happy, sexy read. This book is definitely powerful!
