It is a great story, well actually i've read the second book of it, co'z i have no idea at first that it was a trilogy. So yup, i read the second book first. Kind of weird?!? While reading the book, i sometimes laugh co'z there are some part of the story will make the readers realize that there really is a thin line between love and hate. After I read it, all part of the story was so great. Every romance story have all their uniqueness and Simone Elkeles definitely prove her originality from this story.
