When she's not pursuing an outdoor adventure, Ali's less healthy passions include ice cream, coffee, and beer.

Review by: Lexee Toste on Nov. 30, 2018 :
I really enjoyed this story and the characters. I loved how Roxie did not want to just bow down to Ryker. She was in a new school but for the most part she didn't back down and just cater to his whims, even when her new friends starting distancing themselves from her in the middle of it. I liked the pace of the story. We get to see a lot of build up between Roxie and Ryker. There is plenty to grab and hold your attention as you go through the book. We have our typical mean girls but because of their wealth and where they stand in the social hierarchy (outside of the academy as well as in) they are more ruthless and have more means. I was definitely hoping for more of Roxie and Ryker together and we don't get to see too much of that in here. We get to see the beginning stages of them getting to know each other and finding each other's boundaries with what they are willing to put up with but not a lot of time of them being together. With that said, it didn't detract from the story too much, because it fit the characters and how everything was set up. It just makes me lean toward this not being a standalone story really. We do have an ending that is not a cliffhanger and it's a little bit of a happy for now, I just wanted more out of it at the time. I'm super excited to pick up the next story and continue their journey! This was a fantastic read!
