-- My Thoughts --
Charlee had always been in love with Dexter. Up until he caused her mother to die, and her father to be forever deformed. Now, Charlee has to take care of her little brother and her father's work. But it's not that easy, specially when Dexter is lurking around every corner. Did he really do it? Can their love truly conquer it all? Is it really love at all?
Well, I will first talk about the good sides of this book. The writing is typical. It is straight-forward and to-the-point. Nothing too fancy. Nothing too dull, either. I liked the characters, Charlee is such a fragile girl with a very tough exterior. I didn't like Dexter that much, he got on my nerves. He always took out everything on Charlee and that was disappointing for a male lead. I preferred Elliot much more. Actually, I LOVED Elliot and I would have been so happy if there was a love triangle with him in it, no such luck.
The first half of this book was quick-paced and it kept me on edge. I liked that. But the second half of this book turned downhill really fast. It was very, very confusing. I couldn't keep track of the time. It felt like the editor, just copy and pasted different parts of the book in the wrong places. This really irritated me. The end was satisfying though. It was good. I don't really know if there will be a sequel, but if there is, I want it to be about Elliot. he would make a much better male lead than Dex.
