My name is Kimberly and I'm the reader/reviewer behind Wit and Sin. Wit and Sin is a website that provides honest reviews and publicity. I primarily read and review Romance titles, but I also review Urban Fantasy, New Adult, Young Adult, Mystery, and Non-Fiction titles. In addition to Wit and Sin, I am a reviewer for Joyfully Reviewed (pen name: Shayna) and Romance Junkies (pen name: Lily).
5+++ stars for the beginning - it's heartbreaking, intense, and tragically all-too-timely. Simone, Reed, and their friends' journeys, watching how they coped, grew, and changed over the years - all of it was top-notch
3.5 stars for the romance - I liked Reed and Simone as individuals (especially Reed) and together and their romance was solid, but it wasn't as engaging as the rest of the book nor was it memorable like many of NR's other couples. Perhaps it was that the instalove just didn't do it for me. I'm burnt out on instalove in general, so take that into account.
