This book was one of those that was on my list for a long lonnnng time, but I ended up forgetting it. I'm ashamed to even admit that I even have the E-Book in English and Portuguese (my birth language), since I bought it at a promotional time, because I really wanted to read.
The point is, it's a highschool bully romance, and I've read so many of those lately, that I didn't want to grab any of them anymore!
But then I just reread Credence, and I wanted more from Penelope Douglas, without diving into Corrupt yet (which I also already have on Kindle, and I'm just waiting for her to finish the series, so I can start reading... Yes, I am one of these people).
What surprised me about this book was the background of the relationship between Ryen and Misha. They knew each other deeply since young age, without really knowing each other. She showed him who she would like to be, but she lacked the courage to reaaaally be that person. She was a scam, simply because she no longer wanted to feel alone and excluded. I mean... Who never?
I will not judge her attitudes, because I think everyone has already gone through similar situations, whether at school or in the workplace.
Misha arrives to solve his own life and mess, but ends up making the real Ryen show her face, and I'm really happy with their relationship.
The construction of each character is wonderful, and I really like the author's writing.
I didn't expect the final revelation regarding Misha, but it was certainly the missing piece in his puzzle life.
I recommend it to anyone who wants to dive into conflicting emotions of young relationships.
The author's note, at the end of the book, was just another slap in my face... We really are more harsh on heroines then with the heroes. We always want them to be perfect and fitting in our standards at 18yrs old!
To the hell with it!
I was just trying to get myself out of morgue at that age, so I guess that's I will now try to be more friendly with my book ladies.
