One of my main annoyances with this is both of the main characters are very conflicting they think something but do the absolute opposite. Elsie is in love with her best friend who I don't think treats her well on top of that despite being ditched all the time she still keeps going back and forgiving him.
I also hate that there is no resolution at the end of the book I guess leaving it open to a sequel. I would not recommend this book.
I wish she would have given him that huge kick in the ass that he needed much sooner, then maybe he would have come around and stopped being such a turd. I think it was good that she went to South Africa, but I don't see the point in making him start seeing people so soon after. Why make one of your main characters so lackluster? I get that in real life people are like that, but I guess I read to escape that sad fact. I'm just a sucker for a happy ending. I would have liked this MUCH better if there was more resolution at the end. Even if they were firmly never getting back together, I'd have liked that a little more. I hate vague endings unless you're clear to your reader that there's a sequel. I feel like I've been left hanging.
I liked the plot line (who doesn't want best friends falling in love?) and I was rooting for Elsie & Hayden in the beginning. The more I kept reading though, the more I thought that her relationship with Hayden was unhealthy. There was another guy friend in the story and I thought the author was hinting at bringing him into the picture. He seemed like a sweetheart. But Hayden needed help. I was hoping he'd somehow redeem himself - but no.
I was all for this book after reading a brief summary. It sounded like a light read I like and the story and genre was something I was really interested in. As I started to read the book, the story itself was fine the first few chapters, but then it hit a certain point where I couldn't stand the characters and the story itself was becoming cringe-worthy.
Elsie was stupid to keep forgiving Hayden for all the wrong he's done. He's an idiot, he's selfish and annoying as hell. The two characters weren't likable and you couldn't connect to either of them. I understand these two are still in high school, but the way they act and talk is as if they were way younger. It didn't sound believable to me. I also felt it was pointless to have Hayden's point of view for a few chapters. It didn't really do anything to the story if they wanted us to sympathize with him because his feelings and his actions don't match.
I was glad to finally get to the end of the story, but I was left feeling angry once it was over because of how it ended. I was really hoping for a HEA but got the opposite. It would have been fine if it was written in a way where they got the right kind of closure with each other, instead it almost felt like the cycle was about to start again with their relationship.
The other characters in the story didn't add any value. In fact, Nick was only there to basically show Hayden gets jealous too. The way it was written, I thought Nick would have ended up with Elsie, or even go a completely different route where he comes out to Elsie that he's gay or something. Either one of those would have made more sense of his presence in the story than just to be there.
I would have given this one star, but I gave it two because I was kept interested in the beginning. Other than that, It lost my interest and I just finished it for the sake of finding out what happens.
Lastly I'd like to say that I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book, through Reading Deals, and I gave an honest review.
