I really enjoyed this book. There was never a dull moment. I liked that the author kept a mystery to the book that was slowly revealed of their past. I enjoyed Ellie's character, I thought she was unique she was just a women trying to get past everything she went though. I liked Dex's friends and Regina I liked how Regina turned how and tried to help Ellie realized shes not her past from foster care. I really loved this book and think you readers should check out this book. 4.5 of 5 stars!
