I really enjoyed this book, I felt it was a very easy read. The story line flows seamlessly and the characters are great together. Although, I felt the drama and suspense could have been a little stronger, I loved this book non the less. As a debut novel, Hollie Westring did a fantastic job portraying the characters, the good and the bad. I can't wait to read book 2!!
