Absolutely disliked this book. Could not finish it and had to read the spoilers that made be feel glad I had actually not finished it. Cheese and drama overload and completely unrealistic!

I thought this book was a bit predictable, and the ending was brushed over too quickly. However, I still couldn't put it down and it was an exciting story with good character development.

*SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!! IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE BOOK, YOU MIGHT WANT TO SCROLL DOWN. I DON'T MEAN TO RUIN THE STORY, BUT THESE ARE MY FULLY HONEST OPINIONS ABOUT THE BOOK, AND I JUST WANTED TO BACK IT UP. PLEASE DON'T REPORT.*
I'd seen a lot of good ratings on this book all over, and I was 100% looking forward to this book.
But after reading just the first little bit, I knew it just wasn't for me. Usually, I can typically manage to force myself to love a book, but this one wasn't even willing to let me like it. The entire thing was a massive turn-off for me, and the two main characters were definitely not my thing. Fallon and Ben's personalities are so contradicting and fake.
When they first meet, Ben mentions Fallon's boobs and panties over and over and over again. This literally made me shudder and shiver. Like oh my god. Also, at the time that they make love, Ben says some things that made me sick to the stomach, and I'm not even exaggerating. Ben's humour was not enjoyable for me. AT ALL. He tries to be funny to entertain Fallon, but I was not swayed by him.
These two meet once a year, but they're seriously always tangled up in each other every time they meet. It's a little hard to imagine, mind you. And after their primary meeting, Ben's already undressing Fallon, and their instalove is SO UNIMAGINABLE. Like it's absolutely unreasonable.
(There's also a stereotype mentioned near the beginning about gay men, and reading into it just made me uncomfortable.)
In summary, the whole plot was just unbelievable, and WAY (and I mean WAY, WAY, WAY) too many coincidences occurred. Also, the plot twists were just too much. When I discovered that Ben had been the one causing all of Fallon's pain, it actually disgusted me. It's even suggested at one point (just slightly suggested, nothing major or obvious) that Ben didn't regret his actions of doing so. When Ben and his deceased brother's wife have a kid, it made me enraged that he just left them when Fallon came back. It might've just been me, but this man shows no responsibility and doesn't admit to his mistakes. His personality is just a complete turn off.
Seeing the compliments she's received, I thought Colleen Hoover wouldn't be a letdown, but this one really left me 100% disappointed. This is the first book I've ever read by her, and I'm not sure if I'm looking to read more. I made it into 84 pages, skimming the rest (which is actually a huge achievement for me in my opinion), and then I just had to toss the book away. ABSOLUTELY COULD NOT KEEP GOING. It made me cringe so hard on some quotes that were said (ESPECIALLY by Ben, oh my god, I could not take them AT ALL), and I'm so sorry, Colleen Hoover, but this is the first book I've given a half-star rating to. This just was not for me.

This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. I discovered this author when I read another book of hers that I too enjoyed. I plan now to read all of her books. She is an extremely good author!!
