My review

I loved this book. It was unique. I could not stop reading when I had started. The writing is so good, and I was up late to see how the story would end. I know a book is great when I have to stay up all night for answers. 

Clarissa and Richard are so complex and interesting. They made the story phenomenal, and I liked their relationship. It was one of the best ones I have read in a long time.

Take the time and read this book, you will not be disappointed. 

Share and Enjoy !
