Ms. Harrington is one of my favorite authors. I love how she takes you into their story. I felt so sad for Miranda and sometimes Sebastian did make me made with his attitude.... but he came through for me in the end. There are some books you just wish you could rate more than 5 stars and for me this is one of those books!! Loved it! "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
