This is a great read!! Aymes definitely know how to write to keep the pages turning. You definitely fall in love with the two main characters and are routing for them all the way. The book is almost solely the two main character throughout the entire book, I wish that the supporting characters had a little more face time. Julie & Ryan could be overwhelming at times for me, however the pages kept turning I felt like the shoe was going to drop and oh boy it did!! This first installment ends with a cliff hanger that leaves you wanting more!! I am really looking forward to continuing this trilogy and finding out how Julie & Ryan’s story turns out.
