Publication Date: July 2nd 3013
Format: e-book (borrowed)
First things first things first… I LOVE CAYMAN! I like-ish Xander, really liked Skye, I was not particularly fond of Cayman’s mother.
This was a great story! I was pretty hooked as soon as I started reading it. I was even so taken by it that I let my other book rental lapse and now I have to wait my turn to be able to rent the book again. I felt like the story was very well written and I was completely absorbed in Cayman’s struggles with love, life and her mother.
Cayman was just such a fun character. She’s not a typical teenager because she’s very mature for her age. I think I probably love her so much because being an only child of a single parent, I can totally relate to her relationship with her mother.
I felt like the love story wasn’t so much about Xander so we really didn’t get to know him as well as Cayman but I felt like that was ok. Not that there wasn’t anything to know about him, but his issues where trivial comparatively.
The reason I am not giving this book 5 cups of yummies is the ending. It felt…rushed, that’s the best way I can describe it. The whole situation was a lot of build up with very little pay off. It was a little disappointing. I was actually kind of mad at the book for ending. It left me feeling like their just should have been MORE.
On the whole I really enjoyed this novel and I am looking forward to reading more books by Kasie West.
