I had no idea what I was getting myself into as I selected this from my review copy list at random and rarely read summaries to books, just the genres.

The premise of this book pulled me right in. While I find teenage “romance” to be cringey as all hell, I’m a huge fan of anything to do with bound souls. This book reminded me of a movie I watched with a similar premise, which caused me to want to re-watch it. (The movie is 2:22) Normally, it causes me to enjoy a story less when I’ve seen the plot elements done similarly or the exact same way before. But really is one exception for me.

While I usually don’t get invested in the lives of the characters, this is one of those rare books that caused me to care. I wanted to see how things were going to unfold. I wanted to know if history was repeating itself in the present and how things went down in the past. Would they be avoided this time?

I look down on the whole arbitrary rating system with books. Either it’s worth reading or it’s not. I very nearly gave this a middling rating or do not read rating because of the ending. It just felt abrupt and out of nowhere for me. I hate cliffhanger endings with a burning passion but I still went looking to see if it has a sequel and I couldn’t find anything.

It feels as if this book ends a few chapters too soon. In the story, Meredith is going back and forth between these two guys that she’s into. At the very end. the story just stops out of nowhere. It feels like half of what you read was trying to uncover the past and the other half didn’t amount to a damn thing in the end.

The narrator does an exceptionally good job. There weren’t any instances of repeated dialogue or other common Audible errors.

Overall, I’ve enjoyed this story quite a lot. But the ending has left a bad taste in my mouth. Though I don’t think it entirely ruins the story or should prevent you from reading (or listening) and enjoying it.
