TeriLyn's thoughts: This was an interesting read for me. At first I couldn't believe what Charlie was doing but after sleeping on it, I get it. There were many parts that I liked about the book.

Charlie was young and had plans and felt suffocated. She was consumed with Colin and had demons that needed to be conquered. Her decisions came from a very mature place for a 21 year old girl who had hot,rich, superstar boyfriend.

Speaking of said boyfriend, Colin was awesome. I loved the way he treated her, how he only had eyes for her; he was all-American personified. His addiction to her seemed unhealthy to me and somewhat unnatural but only because I've never seen a man that wrapped up in a woman. I guess if I were the object of his affection I'd probably feel differently.

One issue for me was the time between the past and the present being one of them. The writing and how they spoke of the time frame made it seem that Charlie graduated from Harvard Med in two years that seems short to me? I also thought the amount of time that had passed was a lot. I got confused.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It felt very real to me and Charlie's honesty made it that way. I did not like the epilogue, just a warning. But I do very much look forward to book two.
