This book is fun! I liked the tension and build-up throughout the book leading the to the end of the party and ultimate fall out of the Riva family.
Spoiler Did anyone else think that Mick was an addict?? And then feel redemption when Kit asked if he was in a program?

This book while it definitely kept me wanting to know what happened and why I also found myself super annoyed and idk what else. Bored??? I really don’t know. While I enjoyed the writing and the characters were so intricate, this just wasn’t for me. And while this is nothing on the author or anything it’s more on me and unfortunately this book didn’t do it for me. Also, my attention span does not do well with the changing of POV’s as it flowed. I became super confused as to who it was but again this my issue not anything else. So yeah, I also had such HIGH hopes but it just didn’t get there. 😭
