Review: 5 stars
I found myself immediately immersed in this book. When it ended, I didn't want to let it go. The book switches between Kate and Jarrod's point of view, so you get to see what each of them is thinking—which I've always liked. I also very much enjoyed Kate's wacky grandmother! I recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy, romance, and adventure, because this book has a little bit of everything.
