5 Star Review

How will Bryant handle his friend Jordan making a play for Rose? Will Bryant ever stop being so hot and cold and push forward with Rose? When the unthinkable happens which guy is there to support and comfort Rose when she needs someone the most? 

OMG I loved this book it has so many twists and turns throughout the book. I really connected to the characters and really loved both men who want to be with Rose that I had a hard time decided which team I was on : Team Bryant or Team Jordan. I cried a number of times throughout the book. It’s a emotional book that sucks you in from the very beginning. I was sad it ended and upset with the cliffhanger having me wonder what’s going to happen next. I hate waiting to see what’s in store next for Bryant, Rose, Jordan the the others in the book. But I’ll try to be patient and wait because I’m excited to see what happens next. It’s a great book with a heartfelt story that brings you to tears and makes you feel everything the characters are feeling and living.
