Four Boundless Stars
These two drive me mad! Yes Houston kept a secret and I understand that she needed to get away. But she makes one of the biggest mistakes and I could tell that it wasn't the right thing to do. The whole time I got that awkward feeling. Rory doesn't deserve to be hurt and she never expected that Houston would. But you have to move past that.
Rory is lost, I think. She's very indecisive. She doesn't want to do the wrong thing. Houston has a lot of apologizing and proving to Rory that they are destined for each other.
Honestly, the beginning I thought this book is so annoyingly frustrating. I think because she was with Liam. Hello? That is not cool. The writer does an amazing job conveying the emotion. Also, the narrators of this story, you can tell they have such a passion. To make you feel that awkwardness, heart pumping, the aching for that one person.
The way it ended I wanted to know more, though I could give two shits about Liam.
