Even his hair didn't have a strand out of place. He was so perfect. She had wanted to run to him and mess up his perfect image. She didn’t know why seeing him with someone else she had wanted to change than into donkeys. Beth hadn’t believed she would be here on her birthday.

That doesn’t leave them much time. Beth can feel the pull deep inside that says Edward can be trusted and is telling the truth.
I liked this novella but felt it was definitely too short - if you can even call this that. But I felt this was rushed. It took under an hour to read. I wondered why this wasn’t just added to the beginning of the first book of the series as a prelude- to Wedding Bells Times Four. This did make me curious about the first book and interested in trying the book. I would have definitely liked more background on Beth, Nora, and Edward. I just felt this was way to short presented as it was.
