    I may sound a bit childish but i just recently finished the book, and I honestly wished Billy ended up with Georgie! But it was a sweet story that definitely took up a lot of my time! In a good way of course! Who doesn’t just love books? 🙂

    Actually, Rowan, I’ve talked to a lot of people who felt exactly the same way. Who doesn’t want the two characters who initially seem like adversaries to end up falling in love? 🙂

    This lady basically copied the inside cover of this book! That is so fake.

    Hi James,

    As a reviewer, I take my job–to provide thoughtful, original assessments of each book–very seriously. Most books, including this one, I don’t even see in hard copy form, so I would have no idea what the jacket says. These days, most reviewers–including me–get eGalleys of new titles from the publishers, long before the book appears in print form.

    As you can see from the hundreds of reviews on this site, I have no reason to rely on the marketing copy that book jackets provide, since reading each book and providing a nuanced, insightful perspective of its contents is my passion–and the heart of this endeavor. I would never undermine that by “borrowing” from a book cover.

    Her review in no way resembles the inside cover, at least of the edition I have. Care to offer specifics, or is this just a drive-by shooting?
