Assessment

I chose this book because the title and cover drew my attention. The cover is calm and how mysterious it was.

My favorite part of the book occurred when Colt finally received that that life was still going on around him without Julia there.

In my opinion, the book is very realistic but fantasy actions occur.
Some reasons I liked this book is because the intense mission to keep their secret affair going. And after awhile of Colt rejecting his feelings for Kirby they finally went out. Reasons I disliked this book is because Julia called Colt "flat" trash! Then after all Julia and Colt been through Julia stayed with Austin.

Overall, I would rate this book a 4 because the book could have been more detailed and meaningful
