This may get some backlash for my opinion but I am giving a very generous 4 stars but I would probably go 3.5 if I’m being honest. I freaking love Leigh so hardcore but I just couldn’t get into this one. I knew it might be a difficult read for me but I nearly stopped reading about 65% through.
I did not like Francesca at all. I hate to say it but she was whiny and so annoying! I understood she was is horrible situations but even when those situations turned good she spit on it in disgust. I grew so angry that I wanted to throw up when she was talking to Angelo in the rain. I read that part and got so sick I had to stop reading all together. She grew up in the last chapter and epilogue but I could not stand her 19 year old self being the way she had been. I could possibly be taking this too much to heart but I did not like her. And the notes.......she took the notes so freaking literal and I just got fed up!
Now Wolfe, holy hotness!!! I got to read both sides and understand his actions more than Francesca did so in some parts I didn’t hate her as much but her age showed and I didn’t like it. Wolfe knew exactly what he wanted and how he was going to get it. He made me fall for him while he was being the way he was to his bride. I loved him fiercely at their introduction and knew he would be a hell of a character!!!
I am so sorry that I didn’t like this book as most did but I really disliked Angelo and so many characters in this book. I wish you nothing but the best with this book. This just wasn’t for me. You came across cheating, abuse, death, violence, blackmail and even some love but the one I couldn’t get passed was the first....cheating. It’s a no go for me.
