More like a 3.5. One of the things that attract me to a book is the cover. This one having a beautiful cover, intriguing blurb and high praises and I'm sold. However it fell short for me. It started a little slow and overly sweet for my own liking. What I like most in this story though is Landon's character. What he did was admirable. So I guess I'll be reading his story. I might have loved this had I not read stories of the same kind before. Sad to say it's just not for me.
