Seven letters. A.W.E.S.O.M.E.
I had never expected the book to start the way it did, but it captivated me from the very first page. It had more romance than I had expected, but I gave it 5 stars because aside from the romance (which I didn't mind too much), it was just SO good. I am looking forward to reading more of Miss Jill's books.
P.S. Feel free to ask me any questions.
