I loved this fanfiction story based on Twilight.
The book is well written, Shay Savage did an amazing job capturing male's POV again! You might think it's YA but there were some hot sex scenes, so I'm not sure about that, not to mention that Thomas likes to talk dirty in bed.
There was high school drama and angst, which I love, so naturally I loved this book.
There was a lot of twists, so it sometimes felt exaggerated but everything was well put together in the end.
I was utterly wooed by ending and epilogue, sweet and perfect.
The character development was good, especially when it comes to Thomas, I liked how he changed over the years.
There was a lot of references to Twilight, not a 5 Stars (originally read 10/7/2014)
4 Stars (ReRead 7/12/2017)
Overall Opinion: This was still an enjoyable read the second time around.
I am dropping my rating from 5 stars to 4, however, mainly because of the pacing.
It was on the longer side at 481 pages in my kindle app, and I really do think it could've been edited down.
There were some things when looking back at it that weren't all that relevant or needed for the overall storyline.
I did feel like it was slow at some points, and I think it might be because of those moments.
I also felt like the last 15ish% was jammed packed full of things happening and time jumps.
While I really do appreciate the closure on all aspects of the story (and my followers know how much I hate not having closure!), I th
I really liked this one.
I was a little worried at first.
A few things concerned me.
(1) The fact that it was Twilight fan fic.
Yes, there were a lot of similarities and because of that all I kept picturing were these two.
And various other scenes from the movie.
It didn't really bother me, I just found it amusing.
The storyline itself was different but there would be pieces here and there that you could tell came from Twilight.
(2) The fact that it took place in high school.
Yes, I am a slut and I like sex in my books.
I am pleased to say that this book did have some sex in it.

Actual Rating 4.
I really liked this book.
It made me cry like a baby, several times.
It is such an emotional book.
There are many things going on, the story is not just about one things.
It is definitely no just about a romance between two people.
It is so much more.
When I though the book had to be getting naturally towards the end, as most books would have at that point, a whole new set of circumstances happened and I realized I still had almost half a book left to read.
It was an incredible ride.
I got to love the characters even though I couldn't stand Thomas at the beginning.
I liked the love story, but I loved even more Thomas story.
He is heartbreaking and an ass.
He is so vulnerable that you want to wrap him up and take care of him despite his assholeness.
Shay Savage has done it again.
It seems every time I f 5 My Rumple STARS
I went into this with a bit of trepidation because it was YA (not that I won't read YA but it's not my goto, depends on the author)and it also did not seem to go with the Shay Savage that I know and love.
This story just seemed so far off from Surviving Raine or her Evan Arden series.
And it is!! But silly me, so is Worth and photobucket.

I’m Thomas Malone, and I’ve seen to it that the world revolves around me.
He’s smart, popular and the girls love him.
he uses them to his advanta DNF at 22%
Now, I read all of Miss Savage's books and I loved all of them.
I said it a million times and I'll say it again: She writes the BEST male POVs in history but unfortunately, this one just did not work for me.
The hero, Thomas, was a grade A manwhore.
He already got a blowjob from a random girl within the first few pages.
He was too arrogant, treated girls like shit, and bullied anyone beneath him.
Add that to the fact that the writing was so exaggerated.
All the screaming, shrieking, yelling and his father's abuse.
I loved this author's style of writing so much i UPDATE: I was unaware this was Twilight fanfic when I read this.
because I was not in "the know" and, apparently, I'm completely and utterly unobservant as well.
Regardless, if you want a review that's kind of separate from the whole fanfic umbrella regarding this book, here you go.
"I'm Gonna Go With 3 Stars" Stars
I'm not sure what I was expecting this book to be like.
the blurb was kinda vague and Shay Savage can be kind of a wild card (which I loveshe gave us both Surviving Raine and Transcendence
