I really enjoyed this book. I liked the plot as well as the pace a lot. I did choke up at times while reading this. I like the flashback shown so we understand why Aly left. I don't usually like going between the past and the present but it worked fine in this book. It also showed how feelings had grown and I loved that. I liked how the author made Ollie the love interest instead of Aidan the next in line to be king. I didn’t want to put this down. I loved ollie’s love and loyalty to Aly. I also really liked that there were some twists. I just loved Aly and Ollie together. I loved the characters and the twists in the book and I recommend.
