I was totally hooked into this story early on and I honestly couldn't put down the book until I had finished it. The basic story wasn't unique - just your standard love triangle really between Ocean, Evan and Ari, but it was the author's style that totally captivated me - not to mention the twist at the end, which was sheer genius in my opinion. I particularly liked the POV used by the author, especially the little interjections in the story by Ari's brother Ira. It was a little like watching a soap opera, with the occasional asides to the camera by one of the participants. I've never read anything like it before and it was so, so well done by Tracee Boyd.
So, in summary, I truly enjoyed this story and would recommend it to anyone. It is full of very valid and very real moral guidance and suggestions. It is a fantastically written story.
BUT...and it is a very big but. Why can we not put as much effort into editing and formatting as we do in writing the story. I know how painful editing is, but it is a VERY necessary evil. This book is poorly edited and poorly formatted. There are words missing, grammatical errors, typos...you name it. The only reason they didn't drive me crazy was simply how good the story was. I would strongly advise the author to re-edit the book and resubmit it for sale. This book deserves 5 stars in my opinion, but I could in all fairness only give it 4 and that is solely due to the poor editing.
A great read and so totally different to anything else I've read. The editing didn't ruin the story for me because the story is that good.
