Rated 4 out of 5 by from I loved it When I started reading it I didn't know what to expect. It sounded like an average love story but I knew there must be more to it and there was.

The only reason I gave it four stars is because the ending made me question whether what happened was needed or was it just the author pulling on the reader's emotions.
