  • I have never tasted caramel frappuccino but that sounds pretty good.
  • I feel so bad for Blair 😦

I had to order this immediately after I noticed that there was another Alexa Riley book available in physical form!

Blair’s relationship with Fritz was historically bad and I saw some of the storyline coming. I think it should’ve been a sign when she talked more with Johnny than with her own boyfriend.

Blair has a low esteem and didn’t want to end up like her mother, who barely even remembers that she has a daughter. More than anything Blair wants loyalty since she has never been able to count someone no matter what.

I really should’ve found Blair and Ryker’s relatioship creepy since he kidnapped her but I didn’t. and I’m not sorry about it. I love it how Ryker wants to give her anything and everything she wants, expect let her leave of course.

I find it kinda sweet how he calls her his cricket. Ryker is possessive and controlling but he likes to take care of her. He knows her almost better than she does.

I really enjoyed this story but some parts were so predictable that I chose to give it four stars.

4 stars
