I definitely love this story is a new favorite of mine. It was well written.It also had a great plot.i loved how Cali was determined to make everyone pay who had hurt her sister Krissy. Even though it drew attention to her and there were evil people after her to try to get to her father. I was glad Tango was there for Cali and I loved how their relationship flowed into friendship and then more. I felt bad when Tango sat in the car when they told his parents he was dead. This was a fast paced story and how could it be anything else and work. It sure kept my attention. I was on the edge of my seat at times and didn’t want to put the story down. I did laugh at times and others I did choke up. It was a little slow at times yet that did not take away from the story enough that you consider not finishing this not even close. I loved tango and Cali together. They had so much against them but at least now they had each other. I loved the characters and the twists and turns of this story. I just loved the book and I highly recommend.
