"*WARNING THIS REVIEW WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS* Yea I didn't really like this one. I don't see why everyone who likes Colleen Hoover says this is the best one. For me, it was boring and really tough to get through. The writing style was different and more slow paced than her other books. I feel like the dude Leeds(which is such a weird and stupid name to have lol) fell in love waayyy too fast. I mean I occasionally read books that have love at first sight or instalove, but this? Come on, that could've have gone way better. I knew nothing of this book, until a friend spoiled the whole "paranormal" aspect of it lol, so when they got shot, it shocked me, along with finding out he killed Sable, but even before that I figured Layla wasn't Layla, you know? The whole time they were in the house, I just got the clues before leeds did so I couldn't really enjoy it. Also, leeds is a horrible boyfriend with no morals. He legit just kept having his "girlfriend" possessed because he preferred the ghost. Stupid butthole. Anyways, I kept putting it off and I wished I didn't because that was a waste of time. I will say I liked how aspen reacted to when Sable came through, and how she misplaced her trust in leeds. That's a good sister right there. I don't know what else to say about this book, other than it was okay."
"Love Hoover’s writing, generally, but I have mixed feelings about this one. The storyline was really quite intriguing, but the surrounding details were unsettling, disturbing and maybe didn’t need to be. Will read more of her work, but wouldn’t necessarily have anyone start with this one. Verity and It Ends With Us are better representations of her work. "
