I never thought I'd find a book couple I like as much as Rush and Blaire, yet Abbi Glines made my wishes come true... AGAIN!
This book was so not what I was expecting at all. We've got Woods and Della starting up right where they left off in Twisted Perfection. Della has her issues and Woods is there for her. A lot of little shockers happened in the book. The twists and turns were something I wasn't expecting from Abbi Glines. Normally, her books are a bit predictable if its the 4th and up book in the series, but holy moly did things get crazy! I love how Woods and Della work together to become one. They understand each other like no one else can.
I love Della. She's a fighter, but she lacks self confidence. I think everyone has a bit of Della inside themselves. But we all persevere and break through just like Della.
Woods. Hot. Yummy. Amazing. There are so many ways to describe this beautiful man. But I think the best way is to state it plainly: Della's Other Half.
They work together. They struggle together. But they belong together.
Okay for those of you who read the book: (view spoiler)[ OMG JACE. That was completely unexpected. OMG TRIPP & BECKY!!!.... Does this mean they get their own book too?! I'm pretty pissed at Becky but I think she's got demons inside and she doesn't know what to do with herself. Comment below with your thoughts!! I'd love to hear what everyone else thinks about it too! (hide spoiler)]
I'm really happy I read this book. Another great love story from Abbi. If you've read the Too Far Series then this is one that you will definitely want to check out!

I never write reviews for books, but this book was a bit life changing. Going into it I never thought that drugs would have such a huge role in the overall novel. I mean that was absolutely crazy.
Sweet, kind Nova. She goes through terrible loss in her life. How she is still standing is quite crazy because she's lost so much emotionally that most people wouldn't be able to live life every day.
Beautiful, conflicted Quinton. He made a mistake. He lost those closest to him. So now he punishes himself because he can't see how wonderful he is. He believes he deserves to dead, when he should fight for the life he still has.
When these two meet, worlds will collide, drugs will be prevalent, and their lives will follow a path they both never thought possible.
I'm giving it 4 STARS because of how amazing Jessica Sorensen can write about death, drugs, and forgiveness all in one book. Tears were shed but Nova's struggle couldn't be experienced without them.
But there are some things about the book that just hurt me. Number 1, there seemed to be a lot more grammatical and spelling errors. Number 2, as much as I loved Quinton and his struggles, he is such a different character than all of Jessica Sorensen's other novels that I was a bit disappointed. (view spoiler)[ Especially at the end with the crystal meth, my heart almost broke. Nova got her act together, so why can't Quinton. I understand Sorensen has written 2 more books, so obviously the problem will reach a resolution, but this just almost ruined her books' main guy character for me. Where is the Micha (The Secret of Ella and Micha) , Kayden (The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden) , or even Alex (The Fallen Star). (hide spoiler)] Number 3, there were times where Nova really aggravated me. She thinks all about how she needs to help Quinton, but every time she is given the chance, she doesn't do anything about. (view spoiler)[ 9 months after seeing him she decides to call him up and she's actually surprised he got into meth. I mean she knew what was going on. It's great to get involved in his life and help him, but after so long... Did she not think about him at all for nine months. How could she not try to go get him. Why did she never call him. I understand she had to get her own life settled. But she also needed to be realistic that he wasn't going to be the same person when she got back. (hide spoiler)]
I thought this was a stand alone for some odd reason but I'm now craving the next book.
