This book was definitely written very beautifully . Jackson is a fantastic writer except when she write in the male POV. The pace of the book was rather slow and it dragged on for longer than necessary. The first half of the book was super slow and only by about 60% did some progress start to take place, it felt like it could have happened sooner.
Aly is great, I like her. She's genuine and kind. Jared is tiring to deal with. Hearing his inner thoughts was like a song on repeat and just felt like it was all self pity and constant whining.
Although the writing is good and character development was not bad, the story doesn't resonate in me and is forgettable.
