My Rating: 3/5 stars
I was first drawn to this book by the cuteness of the cover! I admit it. I am a cover junkie. If it's pretty or looks cute I pretty much buy it. Overall, I liked this one. It was a fast, cute read. I will say it was a bit lacking in depth and I wish I had more plot development. I did feel as if the plot moved a bit too fast and that everything was resolved a bit faster than I would have liked.
I did like the alternating POV's and the flashbacks really help us a get a feel for just how deep Piper's heartbreak goes. We also get to see how Sasha reacts and helps us understand some key things concerning his actions.
With that being said, it was a cute love story between Sasha and Piper. Sasha broke Piper's heart and now pops back up in her life years later. She is completely unprepared for his reappearance and even though he still makes her weak in the knees, she refuses to let him back into her life and her heart. Instead, she wants revenge. She wants to make him hurt like he did her once upon a time. Yet, she's finding that matters of the heart are rarely that simple. Sasha manages to work his way back in, despite her efforts to keep him out.
We do have some pretty important side characters. Joss is Piper's cousin, and the two are very close. Joss has a daughter, Leah, and the two are really the only people that Piper has in her life. Cam is another important character, but I'm not going to say exactly where he fits in. But he is all kinds of adorable and definitely steals your heart.
Alexia did have a few plot twists that I definitely did not see coming. They are heartbreaking, but I think at the end of it, Piper comes out a much stronger person.
