I’ll be quick enough with this. I should warn you about SPOILERS!

First of all I admit that sometimes I like the way Abbi writes but this specific book was horrible.

The story is about a 17 years old girl (I repeat 17 years old) who had no previous experience with guys. Suddenly she meets Jax and of course she falls for him immediatelly. Ok I accept that. Within two weeks she KNOWS that he is the ONE and that she will never fall in love again. And here I am asking you… what in the history of fuck is this shit? You’re 17 years old and you meet a guy and haven’t even dated before. EVER. How can you know that he is the only one you will ever love that way? And how can you even LOVE someone after two weeks to the point you can’t live without them. Please…

Ok let me quote:
“I love you more than anyone or anything I have ever known. You somehow become the song inside me. It’s because I love you so much I am going to walk out of your life.”
Said by a 19-years-old rock star to a 17-years-old girl who never dated before. And wait a minute, who talks like that at that age or any age?

So this was a book about how beautiful and mature 17-years-old Saddie was but I guess not mature enough to tell her mother that she should stop being a slut. Instead she goes around buying her condoms. Awww how thoughtful!

The characters where all boring. I usually like the third wheel in love triangles but Marcus wasn’t even close. I never liked Jax and I thought that I would somehow ship Saddie with Marcus but nope, he showed nothing different than Jax. All the other characters ware barely introduced to us so yeah, I guess Saddie and Jax were enough for the story.

To sum up, don’t read the book if you’re not delusional.

Don’t judge.
