"I always love the way CoHo writes and this book was really captivating. Not my favorite book of hers, but still really good. The main characters were a little hard to take at times, but I guess that's ultimately what the book was about, making mistakes and not being perfect, so I was definitely able to let it go and also understand. "
"Amazing and heartbreaking. Seeing relationships so broken reconnect is truly empowering and gives you a sense of hope. It shows you that love has the power to overcome all. Despite the lies, the misconceptions, the hatred and the tears, love prevailed. These two individuals were able to come to an understanding after all the pain they were left with. Holes in their hearts, fragile relationships, and traitorous actions. In the end, it’s best to forgive, but not forget. 10/10–you must read this. "
"I really liked this book. It’s one of my favorite Colleen Hoover books I’ve read so far. Very easy, quick read. I just liked the characters. "
"CoHo is a pro in creating captivating books that we just can’t stop reading. I liked the book and finished it in three days, but I confess it wasn’t my favorite one. I found the characters a little annoying and I couldn’t keep up with all the drama going on, but I do recommend reading it. "
