Book Blurb:

Grief and loss can make a person act out in all the worst kinds of ways. Madalynne Johnson has always been a bit of a handful, but with the loss of her brother, separation of her parents, and her boyfriends unexpected news of joining the army she has gone into a full on tailspin. 

Parker Grant experienced loss firsthand when his brother took his own life. Darkness closed in. Madalynne saved him; showed him the light. And even though he isn’t sure what the future holds--he wants Madalynne and this time he won’t give up without a fight.

Over-all Comment:

I thought that the whole story was plainly cool. There were scenes that I couldn't get out of my head maybe because it was a great one or a not-so-good one. I have said this tons of times but I will say it again, I think I will regret not having to read this book. Yes, you will see that I might be giving out plenty of side comments but a book always has this 'unique' part in them that you will totally regret not being able to read.

Elaborate? Okay here you go....

The storyline itself was not on the 'oh my gosh it's so amazing' side but it was thrilling to read. The only problem that I noticed the entire time was that  it's more on the cliché side. It started With Madalynne being head over heels in love with Parker, thinking that he doesn't love her back but eventually he does. Then things got out of hand, and stuff. The ending was a major cliché too, but you should definitely find out what it is for yourself. There are those mind twisting moments wherein you never know what he/she will do, but most of the time the story was predictable. And cliché. Sorry, I was just affected by the CLICHÉ moments. But Kira please, don't stop writing. The whole storyline, plot, and stuff was great. Maybe you should be just a little little more creative and everything's cool. Like maybe you can be the next Jenny Han or Stephanie Perkins. Hahaha.

Now when it comes to the characters, it was awesome. Especially Maddy's. I get a bit irritated with her sudden change of moods but at the same time, I actually thought she was cool. And a great decision-maker (let's not forget about that). I can totally relate with her, except of course with the sexy moments. But she was definitely that indecisive teenager at first that becomes matured towards the end. And I'm screaming like 'Been there, done that". 

It was fun getting to have all of the character's POV in one book. Like there are Jacqueline and Lee, who are both minor characters that was involved with Parker and Maddy. They were each given their on POV, though it was in the ending part, I think. At least I knew how they both feel. Because what happened to them, was so expected too. So predictable. But it actually came to my mind once that maybe what I thought will happen, won't happen. Because it is __________. You're right guys, predictable. No, no, no, I wasn't going to say cliché on that one. 

I still recommend you to read this. Just like what I always say towards the end of the review. So far, I am very proud to say that most of the review requests I got were nice. And great. And fascinating. And so on. And it's not so cheesy tooo. (one of my friends is very particular with that one).
