I didn’t hate this story but I didn’t love this as much as I thought I would. Maybe because  I figured out the ending shortly after I started reading the story. This story just didn’t WOW me but I did like this story. I loved how the places are described in this story you feel like you are there. But honestly I felt like Bridget was a bit fickle or really didn’t know her own heart and feelings. All through this story she is so in love with Blake and then just about to the ends she finds out some things that upset her and I understand why she called things off but to turn around and all of a sudden she wants someone else . she was just in bed with Blake the day before and how much she loved him. Just like make up your mind lady.  I didn’t like that even.

I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
