Things with Drake and her are rocky and he doesn't seem into her so he goes for it. It's then that Drake sees that he wants her but shes now with Logan. Chloe feels so torn between being with the guy who shes attracted to or her best friend.
Love triangles are cheesy and still I can't help but want to keep reading them anyways. I guess it is guilty pleasure of mine even if I have a love hate relationship with those types of books I still continue to read them. I did love and enjoy this book which is why I have rated it a 4.5 of 5 stars. I loved the characters and how supportive her best friends are I wouldn't even mind having a friend like Logan. Now the hard choice is who should she choose? With this book I was team Drake, he brought fire and passion in Chloe. Meanwhile Logan brought familiarity and comfort. When Chloe was going through the problems of who to choose I just wanted to smack her over the head for getting herself into this situation rather then talking to Logan. Maybe talking to him in the first time no matter how uncomfortable it would've been it would've been best. She should of let Logan know how she felt rather than string him along and ruining their relationship more. Oh and towards the ending, I just saw coming and I am so glad that I have the second book at hand or else I would've gone crazy with a cliffhanger. Well I'm going to cut this review short because I want to get to the second book already :-) Highly Recommend!
