| Amazon |My Review:
* This review may contain spoilers.
I'll start off by setting the mood for this review: I disliked this book. I can't say I hated it because that would be too strong of a word, but it got to the point of me rethinking my decision to start this novel and wanting to never touch it again.
I sympathized with Madison in the first few chapters and I'm all for 'Girl Power' and what not, but when you resort to going behind someone's back and cheating on them (even if they're cheating on you) I'm not on your side. It would have been easier on everyone if she had just stood up for herself sooner instead of putting herself through the guilt and the secrecy.
I didn't really like Yoel from the start. He confessed to lying to her about how he didn't know her when, since the beginning, it was all planned out. The only kink in his plan was him falling in love and to that I say 'good riddance'.
The back and forth with a barely there plot finished sinking this novel in my opinion. I kept waiting for a big plot twist that never came and that by itself was disappointing enough. I also found Madison's best friend Chelsea weird because she would go behind Madison's back and report everything to Yoel. Last time I checked that's not a very good friend.
