"2.5/5 Almost DNF it. The first part of the book was just INFURIATING to read. Not only is the character unbearable, it felt almost repetitive. But, then it got good in the second part of the book. There were a lot of TWs, but it was executed in such a manner that I really understood how horrendous the acts actually are. Lastly, the style of writing was easy to read, but it wasn’t stellar in a way. "
"The overall plot was predictable from the get-go, which made the beginning a little slow, but there's a twist you actually won't see coming. I loved how the story was written in two different perspectives, then at the end it came together seamlessly! Definitely gave some 'Colleen Hoover Verity' vibes.. Finished in a day 11/21. "
"3/5, somewhat of a slow book and I guessed the twist before it happened but overall a decent read "
