My Take on the Book:

I thought that the ‘awkward’ scenes were done very well. Some of the subject matter dealt with in this book is on the heavier side.

There was a particular scene in the book where I felt a bit sorry for the receiving character (even though I shouldn’t), and wondered if they realized the monumental consequences they had set into motion by the response they had initially given.

I ended up giving this book a five star rating and got an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Last Word:

It’s the first time I’ve read a book by this author – and will definitely be reading more books from her in the future.
