I absolutely love this book it has become one of my new favorites. It was a really great read although in the beginning I didn’t think it would be that great then suddenly I didn’t want to put the story down and read it every chance I got until I was done. I felt like I was right there with Brodhi and Kim. The plot was great and I loved the characters. I was even upset when I thought Brodhi relapsed but it all turned out to be awesome. I loved the ins and outs of this story and I highly recommend.
