⭐⭐⭐ (3.5 Stars)
This book tells the story of Grey McCallister, Donovan Kennedy, and Liam Brooks, three childhood best friends that get separate at age 12 when Donovan moves with her family to Spain.
Six years later, Donavan comes back to New York and the innocent relationship she had with the boys is no longer that simple, also she’s harboring some secrets of her own.
As you can pretty much guess from the above this book has some MAJOR Gossip Girl vibes, and I was here for it. I loved the drama. However, I think I needed a bit more from the story. It’s pretty clear from the start who Donovan will pick from the love ”triangle”, and I would love to have seen more flashbacks from when they were childhood friends. We understand that Donovan, Grey, and Liam are damaged and faced a lot of issues together, but that’s never really shown on the page.
At the end of the day, the relationships and plot points never deepened. I wanted a lot more backstory from them, especially Gray, that had so much potential.
However, this definitely was a fun book. If you like a high-school drama, Gossip Girl, and steamy scenes, you will not be disappointed.
