After seeing so many great reviews for this I knew I had to pick it up since I'd (shamefully) had sitting on my Kindle for review for months! Unfortunately I just didn't enjoy it as much as others, it was a bit too much love story and not enough of much else for me, I prefer more action in my books and this was just a bit too 'sweet' for me, that being said I do think fans of the romantic contemporary genre will enjoy it.
There were also a lot of typos in the version I was reading (which, as far as I know was a finished one.) which put me off as there were quite a few times I got 'pulled out' of reading because I had to read a line again.
The story itself though was a really unique and intriguing one, it was something I haven't seen before and was what kept me interested in the book when the romance got a bit too much for me.
I thought Maggie and Caleb made a great couple and were pretty hot together, though I'm not usually a fan of the 'insta-love' it worked in this story and actually made sense, Shelly Crane is a great story teller and did a fine job of putting these two characters together and some great secondary characters, I liked them all except Kyle who was just too hostile at times, he seems like such a nice guy to start I thought he'd be more understanding of the situation since he lives in that world.
So, overall, even though I didn't love this book myself I think others will.
My thoughts on the cover
I really like this cover, I like the soft colours and the swirly frame, the font fits in too. Its a really pretty ensemble.
