I received an advanced readers copy from the author, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and feelings associated with this post are my own.
“I’m not hiding. I’m wearing my heart on my sleeve. Everything anyone wants to know about me is right in front of their faces. Most just don’t bother to look.”
54 chapters of a dual point of view could have gotten confusing, but Teresa Mummert executed this beautifully. The main characters, Henley and Lucas, as well as their large group of friends, were really, really well developed. Everyone had their own bit of the story, and it took the entire length of the book to figure out who was backstabbing who and what was real. The book was just full of surprises. As I read this book the song Games, by Luke Bryan kept playing in my head. If it wasn’t on Mummert’s playlist, it should have been.
Teresa Mummert always writes characters that evoke some form of emotion from me. Some I love immediately, some I fall for slowly, there are others I want to strangle, there are a few I feel sorry for, and there are some I question with what the hell. These are the things I look for in a 5-star read, and she didn’t disappoint!
