Being someone who has not so much of a great person as a “sperm donor” I don’t hold it against Fallon for being rude to her father. I will never be nearly as nice as she was to her father. I don’t even consider that man to be my father. EVER. At least Fallon’s father was in her life. Did he have the right to be so rude back to her? I don’t think so.
I went into this book blind. I didn’t know anything other than what the blurb said about the book. This was not one of the “must read” Colleen Hoover books recommended to me. I put all her books on my holds list at the library and this just happened to be the 2nd one in.
Read the blurb above. Did you? Okay, now where it says “Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist.” Yeah… so this wording of 100% deserved! I did not see that plot twist coming. Not one single bit. I didn’t want to put the book down before, but after I read what I read, I did NOT the book down until it was finished. I wanted to reach in and smack Fallon upside the back of her head and shake her & tell her to read the manuscript. I feel that my internal frustration with her worked, because she did finally read the manuscript. Oops… I promise that’s going to be the only spoiler! But seriously, the plot twist is an uppercut right into the jaw.
