After five months of blissful pretending, Sadie and Rayne are practically the couple of the year. At least, according to Sadie's friends at school they are. But she knows the truth. Their feelings are just an illusion. Now, with graduation and college right around the corner, Sadie realizes she can't put off the inevitable any longer. She has to make a choice. Take the easy way out and run away from her problems, as usual, or move forward with courage and discover her own destiny. But when Ash Hastings, the son of the black-eyed man who almost drove Sadie to her death last November and Rayne's supposed best friend, makes an unnerving appearance in Sadie's life again, the path to her future takes an unexpected turn. And this time, Sadie's life isn’t the only one in danger.
The book was really good. Rayne was a definite improvement. Rayne and Sadie have a complicated relationship. One second they're kissing, the next they're telling each other that they shouldn't be together. The friendship between Ash and Rayne continues to strain as Ash commits mistake after mistake.
Sadie according to me matured a lot in this story. She struggles with the desire to just let things be what they are with Rayne because of the deep connection they seem to have. She is hurt that he seems to put up some sort of a wall between them and she hates that she can't jump over it. Rayne gets to have a lot of time as the narrator of the story, showing his emotions as Sadie pushes him away. Which honestly made me quite happt! :D
He is in love with her and he will do anything to keep her by his side for as long as she will have him. The one character for whom my heart break was Ash.
Honestly he did not deserve what he got. Contantly trying to prove himself to his father backfires on him. I REALLY want him to have a story of his own right now where at least he'll find a happy ending! My next move?? Alreading going for the third installment. ;)
