A really addictive narrative I didn’t quite expect. The flow of the story is smooth and easy to read. It kind of reminds me a little of Ms. Colleen Hoover’s writing style in her earlier romance novels. The plot is very interesting, the dark backgrounds of both the heroine and hero tugging at my heartstrings. At the same time, it’s also very entertaining and I’m pleased with the humor of the main character, India, glad that the story is told in her perspective.
It’s interesting that the the supposed nobody like India was the one strong enough to help the elite group of friends including Finn and her stepsister, Eloise with their individual tragedies. At first I was worried that there’d be a love triangle, cheating, and all that stuff and it’s why I was a little wary of the plot but I was definitely surprised at the path it took.
There was this twist that made the story all that more likable and it showed that even the rich have really difficult personal challenges sometimes even worse than we have. Overall, it’s a nice, sometimes heart-wrenching, hopeful, and sweet YA contemporary story with a romance that is not at all overwhelming or cheesy. I’m properly impressed.
