This was a cute, fun read. There was very little angst (which I LOVED) and the story moved right along. It moved at a perfect pace and everything was tied up nicely in the end.
I truly enjoyed reading this story but I finished it and felt like it just needed more. More story? More character development? I'm not sure what it needed but I felt like this was a novella rather than a novel. It was a good story, nothing was wrong with it but I just wanted MORE.

It was so hard to put this book down! I just wanted to keep reading and reading - it completely captivated me from the start!
I absolutely loved the character of Rose. She was so funny, witty and REAL. Violet was okay, I like that she truly loved her sister but she was a secondary character for me.
Joe was a mystery to me for the entire book. I found myself wanting to believe what he was saying but not completely trusting him. Even after finishing the book I'm still not sure what to make of him - he truly is a man of mystery!
Great read, I highly recommend it! I can't wait to read some of the authors other works!

Rebel is one sexy hunk of a man!
I truly enjoyed this book and didn't want to put it down; such a good read! But, I felt like there were so many things that weren't explained - Rebel's back story could have been much more explained. I felt like some parts were just randomly added in, they didn't "fit" with the storyline. Maybe it's just me who felt that way, maybe not.
Another reason I'm not giving this book the 4 stars I feel it could deserve is because it just ENDED. Nothing was wrapped up, there were so many questions! Something big happens, we feel like Teagan is finally getting to the bottom of stuff and the books ENDS. Not cool, not cool at all. I understand wanting to leave the book open for the next one and for getting readers to want to purchase the next one but it still wasn't nice.
All in all, good story, it has likeable characters (some not so much) and it definitely makes you want to read the next book.

This was a short, cute and fun read. I liked the idea of the storyline, even though its been done so many times before. I love the idea of pretty much love at first sight and just knowing that someone is the right person for you - it intrigues me.
I wish the book would have been longer and more fleshed out; it would have been much better had it been an extra 100 pages. I would have liked to have read more of Madison and Holden's backstory's and delving more into why they think and act the way they do about certain things. I also would have liked to have learned more about Madison's parents and what was going on with her father. She came home because he was in the hospital and after she comes home there is barely any mention of her parents. However, the book was still good as it is and I did enjoy it.

I'm not sure how I feel about this book. It was good, I loved the idea for the storyline, but I felt like it wasn't great. The book was a bit long for a story like this and there were too many loose ends. I don't like feeling like I have too many questions at the end of a novel and that a book isn't complete.
I loved all of the characters, each and every one - they were flawed and perfect all at the same time. I especially loved Mouse and would have loved to learn even more about him.
I feel terrible for even bringing this subject up since I clearly knew what the story was about but I don't know that I could just jump into a relationship with a homeless man, I really don't. Maybe if things were more built up in the story I would have had an easier time accepting it? It was too quick for me - Blake and Livia started talking and then bam they were an instant couple. The rest of the book was them facing challenges as a couple and from the summary I thought the book was more about them becoming a couple...
Regardless, the author is very talented and I have read some of her other works and thoroughly enjoyed them. This book was good, in its own way, I just thought it was a little bit too long for my liking.
