I liked this book. Didn't love it but didn't dislike it. It was hard to put down at times but I liked the ending and how the author wrapped everything up. There were a few characters who I disliked and were hard to tolerate but it didn't stop me from reading.

It is a nice book, but sometimes I just really wanted to slap Ari out of her craziness. I managed to read the book in several hours, but I felt like there was something missing..... Maybe I'm so used to happy ending romance novels, so this disappointed me a little bit. However, I do understand Ari's decision. It felt a little dragged on to me and a little bit over-dramatic. I would not stop anyone from reading this novel, since it was a good book overall. However, the beginning was slow, and it seemed slow until the middle of the book. The blurb also gave away too much information (knowing who she goes out with and what happens to their relationship) Her post-relationship breakdown seemed forever and I felt like she was practically throwing her life away. I wanted her to recover already, but I guess sometimes that's the reality of breakups.

i actually liked this book , i think the romance was great , yes i'm upset that they didn't stay together in the end but i think it proved that life is not all fulled with happy endings

This book makes you think there will be a happy ending... its not. The characters are really strange. And it seems a bit unrealalistic. I would not recomend this book.

The memory of tonight was as unblemished as new fallen snow that I had to protect from careless footsteps.
