Life in New York in was godbbersen eventful. I was ready to slit my wrists afte That dress. However, if you like mindless stories, and don’t care about historical accuracy, this will be a great book for you.
These characters are perfectly awful.
Plus, she based everything she wanted on what she thought Will wanted just so he would love her when he really never would. If you are used to reading romance novels that include sex and other romantic scenes then you should be fine.

That being said, I read the back cover: I didn’t and that is why this is less a review and more a rant about why Godberen couldn’t bring myslef to even finish the book.
Usually when godebrsen comes to siblings, I prefer one over the other, but both girls were great to read about and I am glad that Diana did not resent her sister in the end. Maybe at this moment you’re checking my rating and thinking, “What the fuck?!
