Fly by Hilary Duff  --these words are a perfect motto for Sloan…Hilary Duff isn't quite the right feel but the words are..


Open up the part of you that wants to hide away

You can shine,

Forget about the reasons why you can't in life,

And start to try,


Forget about the reasons why you can't in life,

And start to try, cause it's your time,

Time to fly

⇝My Thoughts⇜


M Leighton can definitely write something that has feeling (at least between the hero and heroine)…and the words flowed with ease while reading this book.  I just feel like a lot of the New Adult Genre lately is getting boring and repetitive.  If I had read this when it first came out or even when I first purchased it, I probably would have rated it higher.  I did try not to let it influence my rating too much though.


While I felt the connection between the two main characters is amazing, I didn't really feel like that between them and any other character.  It seemed like the secondary characters just took second fiddle to them, almost as if we weren't supposed to like them.  It made the ending and everything to do with "all the pretty lies" come off as unconvincing.


⇝Sex Factor⇜ Yes, but it's not overdone though.
