This was a great story. I loved Vik's and Maddie's relationship and how it grew throughout the story. Her secondary characters were also interesting. Lucy Monroe's writing is strong and her ability to tell a story keeps the reader looking for more. I can't wait for her next book which will tell the story of Maddie's best friend Romi and Maxwell Black. I recommend this story to anyone who is looking for a female lead who is not a pushover and a male lead who learns to compromise to get what he wants. I give this story five moons.
