Most Favorite Book Review
This story did not turn out anyway that I had assumed it would. It was definitely filled with suspense but the ending was crazy!!! I just knew Symone had found the perfect match in Drue, after everything she had been through. He seemed to genuinely care for her & want to protect her. He held his secrets & psychotic ways in really good. Anjelo was just as crazy. Im sure they were plotting on Symone the entire time & the way she met Drue may not have been coincidence. I felt bad for India but her situation was the only way Symone found out the truth. I hope Anyaa is as genuine as she seems. The plan to move away was genious, but Drue has to have some type of help to keep finding Symone. You know the book is good when you are feeling all types of emotions for the characters. I was actually praying for the boys at the end of the book. Waiting on part two to see what happens with everyone & if Raj is too good to be true, like Drue was. Good job Author Olivia.--Amazon, Tammie S. (Five Stars) 4/18/16
