I kinda got addicted to this series because of "Rival" (book two), which made me fall for every character so bad that I just couldn't help finding out how everything started for Tate and Jared.
Part YA and part NA, this book doesn't just tell a story of a teenager being bullied, but also shows how one can become a bully without realising it. Not at first, at least. How much willpower does it take to fight back but not come down to your opponent's level? Surely a lot, and that is exactly how much Tate had to endure for quite a while. Jared has always been a great guy and an important figure in Tate's life, so his mean actions/words are like stabs right through her heart. What possibly could have happened to make him such a bully all of a sudden? And with her of all people! Nothing can justify his behaviour and yet, nothing behind it is the reason Tate and the reader would expect...
I devoured this book in a matter of hours and I'm really glad I also have "Until You" with me. I believe seeing everything through Jared's POV (which I really missed here) will make for an interesting psychological journey... If you haven't started it yet, do it now!
