ARC Reader Review
“The first few paragraphs of this novel drew me in and would not let me go till I knew the outcome. From start to finish, it was engaging, romantic, and suspenseful. A story of young love, love at first sight, and a cautionary tale, this was indeed a great read.”

Starred Review 5/5
“I really enjoyed this book. The story was emotionally engaging. In fact, I was so into it, I kept having to go back and add comments since I was that much into finding out what happened next. I really liked Cara and Jamie. How they acted through what can only be considered enormous stress felt genuine and honest.”
