This was a hard review to write since I don't want to give much of anything away but I can promise you reading this book will have you staying up late just to see what happens next for Thorpe and Lily! As you get to know Lily and Thorpe along the journey to Thorpe's ranch, you think you know how this story is gonna end but the whole middle of the book does make you think how is this possible when Lily and Thorpe have so much against them. The whole ending was perfect for what the story told and I so wished that a movie was in the works because it is the perfect love story to be told at Christmas!!
Thank You to Scarlett Dunn for writing a story that made me wished that we get to see more of Lily and Thorpe in the future!!
