"I loved how the characters weren’t this perfect model looking people that most books describe. Colleen Hoover wrote this book for all of us to relate too and I learned a lot from it. I know it’s not based off a true story, but I’ve realized that everyone has flaws, imperfections, and some are visible and some are not. The quotes in the book were so good and The plot twist as always took me off guard. This was a 10/10⭐️"
"I thought the book was good I liked the twists and turns the book had. I definitely was kept interested, but I wouldn’t say they were “couple goals” material. "
"Second book read by Colleen Hoover and even though I wasn't expecting to really enjoy this book, once it started to make me smile, laugh and giggle, I knew it was a good one. The storyline was great and all but the only thing I didn't like was how fast they connected. I did feel frustrated at times with the characters and their decisions. But overall, I really enjoyed it. Can't wait to read another book by Colleen."

"Taking long distance relationships to the next level Ben and Fallon may actually be fated to be together. After being in a terrible fire Fallon is ready to accept her visible scars will never allow her to live life as planned. until she meets Ben, her life still doesn’t go as planned but instead how it was meant to be? The ending the ties these two people is unexpected and shows how scars can be both visible and unseen."
