3.5 to 4 stars...would have been higher but i Didn't connect with the mc's as much as I'd like. Also, and this maybe one of the only times i say this, but I felt like we needed more of the secondary characters to round this out. Not sure if this will make sense, but while, we get a little bit, it felt like all the H and h's bff's and buddies were only on the periphery of each characters life, rather than the important people they should've been. Like the H's roommates and best buddies...they're there, they're mentioned, but only a little bit. Not enough to convince me any of them were really important to the H. But still, a great read, and I'm definitely going to look for more of Ms Doughton's titles.
