This was certainly one emotional rollercoaster ride packed with angst, heartbreak, justice, and love.
I did think there was a really great basis to the story and Alisha did a great job at writing beautiful but troubled characters, but I just felt like there was too much going on and too many people in the 'group'. I personally would have loved this if it had been culled down a bit and not so many tropes being played out.
In saying that it still was a beautiful read with lots of angst (I'm glad Ellie didn't make redemption easy on the boys and Rain), plenty of emotional moments, well-written steam, and of course the cutest little girl ever... Lilly, who in my mind stole the show!
Overall Alisha did a good job, and I'm intrigued to see what happens in book 3 - there is certainly a lot to unpack from that cliffhanger!!!
"No matter what happens, we have each other, and Lilly has all of us. We won't let anyone down again."
