Truthfully, I didn't know what to expect from this. I have had a bit of a bumpy relationship with Christina Lauren throughout the years and I think it speaks volumes for my growth as a person and as a reader overall. I started with their Beautiful Bastard series and absolutely adored it, and quickly gobbled up the rest of the series. But then I hit a wall wherein I simply didn't want to read any romance novels whatsoever and I ended up abandoning the series at Beautiful Secret (thankfully I'm getting back into my romance mood now), and then I abandoned their other series (Sweet Filthy Boy?), because of the same reason. When they came out with Autoboyography, I was straight onto it and really liked it. I felt it knocked their dynamic out of whack a little bit, just because it was so different to what they usually did - but without comparing it to their other works, it really was a fantastic book and something that is very necessary in young adult literature. So, honestly, I was a little sceptical when this one emerged... But I couldn't stop myself from buying it. When it arrived in the post, I picked it up and started reading.
I fell in love with this story immediately - there were no pauses to think and consider whether I liked what I was reading - the book just settled straight into my heart and it felt incredibly right in my soul. I absolutely adored this book, and it isn't one that I'll be forgetting any time soon. In fact, I would go as far to say that it is a book that I will go back to at some point in the very near future. I added a lot of sticky tabs throughout and I genuinely do look forward to going back to them and reading my favourite parts again.
There are some massively important topics covered in this one - and I think they definitely, 100% hit the mark on women's fiction.
