(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).

I quite enjoyed reading this book, even if it did have the fluctuating first person and third person POVs. It was good to see both of the storylines and how they ultimately converged together.
Jade was an interesting character and it was good to see that she didn’t turn into a puddle of goo (sometimes literally) when she was around her crush. I think my favourite part was when she went to Thailand. I liked the relationships she formed with the children there and it was also good to see that Jade liked cats. I liked her right from the start, with her reaction to a cat being mistreated.
The supernatural elements in this book were pretty intriguing. I particularly liked the concept of the forest and the creatures there were in the forest. It was a pretty unique idea to have the animals take on human form and I felt really sorry for Luck. I would have liked to see a bit more of him.
I liked Mya as a character, but I didn’t really know what age she was for a while. I also didn’t realise at first when the storylines were merging together, because Mya wasn’t described at all until the first time Jade saw her.
The minor characters were intriguing, but I would have liked to see more of them during the book, particularly the children Jade met in Thailand. I did particularly like Shea as a character and I would have liked to see more of him. I didn’t know much about his past, but I did like how his relationship formed with Jade.
I did notice some errors in the writing, but it was good how the dialogue reflected the life of the characters and how they’d grown up. I was pulled easily into the storyline and there were some really intense moments in this.
If there’s a sequel to this book, I would definitely read it. I’d also check out other books by this author in the future. This was a really entertaining book that I read pretty quickly. There’s a bit of disjointedness with the two storylines, but they’re still pretty easy to follow.
