I love the character development throughout the book, and the little plot twist at the end. There are important themes in the book, stuff we all recognize from our childhoods, growing up, the 'playground drama's ', the popularity race, the want to be understood etc.
I deeply recommend this book, 11/10 for me!!

I didn’t like Ryen. I didn’t like Misha. The idea of the story started out with potential. They’ve been pen pals since childhood but have never met. When they do meet she is nothing like the person she was in her letters. She’s nasty, fake, pretentious and an utter cow.
I get that the author meant to make her two faced but she had zero redeeming features. And where did the random Laboutins come from?
Misha is a ball of rage who blew too hot and cold for me.
Carnal sin for me in a book is to throw in some random anal action and it go from, no thanks I don’t want to do that, to let’s get is on with no prep and no lube. Let’s be real.
I kept thinking it had to get better, the potential really was there. Unghhhhh I hate it when that happens.
What a spectacular story!
I think at some point we have all been where Ryen is throughout this book, think we have all changed ourselves to suit others when we really shouldn’t have and reading this only proves that. Obviously I figured it’s out a while back (because I’m old or at least that’s what my YA’s say lol) but reading Ryen’s journey made me think back and wonder if I would have been happier growing up if I had had someone like Misha. Someone who isn’t scared to confront the truth and yes probably.
Honest to goodness this story needs to be read, it needs to be read by everyone and I’m seriously glad that I have.
Ryen isn’t a bad person. But she isn’t good. She embodies the dirty, gritty, indifferent sides of our personas. But she’s been given a chance to redeem herself. She tried to be brave. She does and acts as we might hope to act in her situation.
But it isn’t a beautiful budding love. It’s hard hitting. Misha is written well, but some of the angst we experience through Ryen don’t come across quite as well with Misha, and this is my only criticism. Misha has done his growing outside of the narrative, he’s already done a lot of his atoning. Whilst the story outside of the pages would have made this novel the weight of a concrete block, I did wish for more on that front.
That all said, I did love the story, and undoubtedly I will come back to it eventually when I’m ready to re-digest that which I missed on my first read through.
The characters where fantastic and to say that although this is a young adult book it was still brilliant, for me they really didn't appear that young at all. This book went from Friendship, then hate and then love, it was "mean" girls at its finest in my opinion and when all the cards are laid on the table it makes for a thrilling love story.
Misha and Ryen were just brilliant and for me, I would love to see a book of all that happened for them. His rise to fame and them becoming the team that we know that they are. Maybe one day, we can only hope. This book is a total recommend for me. Next up for me is Corrupt.....
I very nearly gave up on this book before page 60. I found the first half very slow but the latter half I quite enjoyed. I am glad I persevered as it did finish well, with no loose ends.
My greatest disappointment was the lack of love I had for the two main characters. I felt pity towards Reyan (the girl), and Misha (the guy) I liked at the start, hated in the main, and liked again in the last couple of chapters. I think that's what the author aims for but it didn't make for comfortable reading. There seemed to be a number of characters who just appeared with no real background, and felt a little skated over but were actually quite useful to the story.
There's a lot of passion later in the book, with high octane teenage hormones racing around, and actually as a 40 something, it took me back to the no holds barred approach to teenage life and that was nice.
What I really liked about this book was the hidden story, an event that affected Misha throughout the book but isn't really described in full till that end of the book.
So, overall it wasn't dreadful, and it did take some effort to get through but I take ownership over not reading the synopsis properly
