Didn’t put it down
By Hannah P , Jul 22, 2021
Age rating (in my opinion): 12+ (mentions of sex, brief making out)
I loved this series, and read it very quickly, but it was a bit of a slow-burn, which I usually love, but i just felt like it needed to go a bit faster. That’s the only reason i gave it 4 stars. I loved the protagonist, Stevie, though, and absolutely adored Nate. Definitely recommend.
