I really, really liked this series. I liked the characters, I liked the story, and I liked the twists. Honestly, I wish I could write a super specific review and tell you all the things I loved about it, but I don’t think I can. I definitely can’t put my finger on why it deserves 5 stars. It probably doesn’t, but I loved it 5 stars worth so that’s what it gets.
The new character additions were pretty cool. I loved Connor and wish he would have been included in the first book as well so I could have gotten to know him better.
The switch from only Addie’s POV in the first book to Addie and Laila’s POV in the second book was a little weird and I felt like there were a lot of sub plots swirling around at one time, but none of that was enough to put me off at all.
I think I really liked how sweet this series was. The overall tone of it was such that I knew I was going to be totally satisfied at the end. I could tell Kasie West was building up to a sweet, happy ending and I didn’t need to have any anxiety about whether or not everything would work out for the characters- I just knew it would.
