Review: I was excited to read this book because i had heard a lot of great reviews of it and I can see what they hype was about. This was a really good romance story but it also had a lot of substance to it as well. It wasn't all cutesy and light which can get kind of annoying after a while. The plot was well paced and I was sucked in to this story right from the beginning. I think the best part of this story is the characters. Lucy and Jude are both very well developed characters that I couldn't help but fall in love with. I loved that Lucy was strong and determined to follow her dreams. Jude was also a really complex character. At first he appeared to be stereotypical bad boy but he is really a lot more than that. Both characters also had a lot of emotional baggage that they were carrying around. This is essentially what drove the plot and I really liked both of them. I was surprised to find out that this book has a sequel because I don't think it really needs one. However, I am glad it does because I am not ready to give up these characters yet.
