I loved it. The more I read the more I didn't want to set the book down. ( )

I loved Sam's character although I don't think he's your typical emo teenager. That could be b/c of his childhood and 'condition.' Overall, it was just a sweet love story. I have read the whole series (Linger, Forever) and really liked them. I wish there were more. ( )

Not sure I love the back andf forth narration but it was good enough I'll be plowing through Linger starting tomorrow. ( )

MA'AM WHEN I TELL YOU I SOBBED!!! Ahhhhh I absolutely am in love with Grace and Sam :( like they are literally so cute. I can't wait to read more of this series ( )

I had trouble getting through the beginning of this book, honestly, it was really boring. I heard great things from my English teacher who always recommends really great things, so I pushed through. It took a while, but I got into it.

Things I Liked

This story has two POVs. Sam and Grace. This is really cool to see from both of their perspectives.

The sentences are really beautiful.

The plot is unique. Most werewolf books are pretty different.

Things I Didn't Like

The action scenes were not all that interesting.

Grace got on my nerves more than once.

The way being a werewolf worked, while different and original, it wasn't how I would have preferred it to be.

I wish that I would have liked this book more than I did, but it was still good, just not great. ( )
