Story Line: I loved the concept of the book, which is what first drew me in to give an honest review in exchange for a copy of the book. I thought that it was really interesting that the book has two story lines, one that belongs to Derrick and Jianna and one that belongs to Ryan and Natalie. However, even though there were two story lines they were wonderfully interconnected that I never once felt like the two story line were awkward, as I had once thought they would be. I also thought that the author did a fantastic job of incorporating the real life events into the story!

Relationship: I loved reading about Derrick and Jianna's relationship. I loved that they had an almost instant connection to each other and couldn't stop reading the book because I wanted to learn more about their developing relationship. Ryan and Natalie were really sweet as well! (What can I say, it's a romantic book lol!!!) It's super clear that Ryan and Natalie love each other so much that they just made my heart squeeze all through out the book!

Overall: This is a beautifully written romantic and mysterious book that will have you saying "wow" and probably crying at points throughout the book!! I especially loved the journal entries because they were romantic, thoughtful, poetic, and beautifully written. P.S- Just know that you'll forever be wanting letter like these hehehe!!!

Rating: I would give this book a 10 out of 10!!!
