Cassy Scoles: So far has been a good read but still kind of confused about the character's

Robin: Great story! The writer needs to learn proper grammar. Saw not seen, did not done, doesn't not don't. Of course going back and correcting all the typos, misspelled words and grammar errors would be nice. It's hard to read such a good story with such bad typos and improper grammar.

Camille: The plot was amazing it wasn’t super long it was good enough the end brought tears in my eyes 😭

Valini: Loved the tension between them, how their story played out and the overall thrill

dallenstewart: its rare to find a bok so well developed and well written. Im praying theres a sequel.

awecraz: I love to see strong Khushi, Akash and Payal. Another good thing is a sensible Arnav, even with his short temper and as annoying as Anjali is, it hardly bothers me, in fact made the plot more interesting...I could't stop myself from getting up to date with the story once I found it..Beau...

Deleted User: Enjoyed the story. Not really my sort of thing, but definitely really well written. Liked everything about school/ college.
