This was a very interesting read. I loved that this book was full of twists and turns that you did not see coming. The relationship between Josh and Mackenzie is very heartfelt. You feel the pain that she has had to live with for so long. Josh feels very guilty for the way that this all had to play out. Both still love each other dearly but they have to face the past before they can try at a future.
My Favorite Moment: I really liked when Drake told Josh where he was going and who he was protecting.
