My Thoughts:

I received this book fromNetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Okay, I feel like I’m the only person on goodreads who thought this books was just okay. 

Let me explain why.

I felt like some of the scenes were just unnecessary and dragged on too long. I also felt like Rose’s narrative was really immature at times.

I did really enjoy the fairy tale feel romance, but I feel like this book just didn’t do quite enough for me.

But again, literally everybody else on goodreads likes it, so if you like the synopsis, go for it!
