My Rating: 3/5
I received an arc in an exchange for an honest review, thanks to YA Bound Book Tours
SO much HEARTBREAK! This was a roller coaster ride full of emotions, but mostly pain and heartbreak. Why did Charlotte and Jacob break up? What secret is he holding that broke them apart so viciously?
This was a typical cliche heart break in relationships, a secret dividing two lovers, torn apart by fate. This " big secret" they kept emphasising throughout the whole book, I honestly was expecting it to be some HUGE news that would be so devastating. Okay so maybe in some sense, I could understand how it would be a problem, however, like in any relationship communication is key. A problem can be tackled if they just had open communication, I feel conflicted about this. I really liked the story, I loved the emotions seeping through the pages for both Jacob and Charlie. But then I kind of think this story was a bit prolonged too much. On a side note, both POV's for the characters was a delight to read! :)
I honestly can't say much about character development is shown in the book, it is more of both of them learning to overcome their difficulties (or what they assumed to be their difficulties) and stop fighting their feelings. But that doesn't mean there wasn't any, for Charlie she realises that life goes on. Good and bad are part of life. And for Jacob, he learns that love can overcome any hurdles and honesty and trust are the key foundations in any relationships.
Although I felt the book was very long, I really did love the writing. I feel like the author got the emotions perfectly in the book, it had the right amount of feels.
