^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^I Loved and Hated this book, so many times i was calling the lead girl(Tori) stupid and wanting to smack her but still i enjoyed this. I Guess i can relate on her self doubt and not thinking she was attractive, but it's how she let people take advantage of it. And funny thing is that she was the only one who thought she wasn't wanted and because of that she drew herself in and became a wallflower so of course she wasn't noticed, which led to her being desperate for any male attention which made her naive. lol i feel like i'm rambling but god there was one scene where i was fuming at her and the boy, *kyle* he was her brother's friend who she basically grew up with and one night he got drunk and took advantage of her ( not in that way) and what pissed me off was hat she let him and she didn't think it was a big deal. In a way yes i can relate and on the other hand she was so damn annoying .
The romance for me was meh at most, i loved grant and hated him. Because he did the one thing i hate in books and real life, he made a choice for her. It was like new moon all over again (lol yes), leaving because he thought it was the right choice. and let me say i understood where he was coming from, she was naive she may not have been ready for a relationship but still he had no right to decide that for her. Her decisions were stupid but they were her's and i can respect that, she learned from them. Girls/women changing themselves to fit in or so that a guy will like them better, i don't like it because if you weren't enough for them then, he doesn't deserve you but it's your choice. Overall 4 stars, i didn't hate hate it but i didn't love it
