I really enjoyed this story. I hadn’t read the previous books so was a little confused for a couple of pages but that was okay . Once I got into the story a little I didn’t want to put it down. My heart went out to both Kristen and Pasha and rooted them on as if they were real so this is a nod to the author. I loved how Kristen and Pasha came together and grew to truly care for each other and I choked up a couple of times. While reading this. I truly enjoyed the characters and the ins and outs of this story. I recommend.
