By Ashley May 25, 2020

This was an enjoyable and fast-paced story. It was one that I sat down and read in a day. For the most part, the characters were likable, but that is the way it should be. They seemed like real people, things you like about them and some things you don't. There were multiple aspects to the story and ...more
