So, the only thing that stopped me from giving this book five stars was the ending. It was rushed and horrible, and honestly, I felt robbed of a decent and proper ending. I felt like the author was suddenly tired of the melodrama and just said F*** it, they all lived happily ever after. Well Jane Green, I disagree with you. See, I spent hours reading this book and I feel like I know the characters well enough to call b.s on the happily ever after ending. But, that is neither here nor there I guess. Overall, it's a great book and I found myself very engrossed in these people's lives. I liked the characters but I was not terribly in love with any of them, so I often found myself not really feeling any type of way about the situations they got themselves into. I think Green's writing style is what really captivated me, and she deserves credit for that.
