RATING: 4 stars

If you are looking for a book with a happy ending, look elsewhere. This books ending leaves something to be desired, but it gets four stars for shock value alone. You’ll never see the twist coming and it will smack you right in the face. Yes, you know she’s gonna kill Adam, she makes no secret of that, but there is something else so shocking that it leaves you feeling more than a little confused.
