I really liked this book. At this point i’ve read almost every book in this series and not in order which is good because you don’t need to read them in order. Each book is about a different couple but within the same group of friend’s. This book had some suspense and mystery in it, compared to all the others. You never knew when or how Kyles was going to make his presence known and when he did it was in a kind of messed up way. Theres definitely a nice surprise that you don’t expect at all, but I loved that the author put it in the story.
