TBH..the first time i read the first book shatter me...it was a struggle coz i didn't like juliette the MC at all...i tend to try to find ways to be able to connect to any of the characters when i read. but gawd her POV's at that time was just frustrating. i even rated it just 2stars then. And the writing style at first there were many strike out words and purple proses. However, since i am a die hard romantic it has its moments too. and the anti-hero Warner was intriguing at first and i thought crazy even.
But as the series progresses i began to really like it and the writing was good. It was the final book Ignite Me that save this series for me. It was kinda an open ended ending...but my SHIP SAILED AND WENT OUT WITH A BANG! lol!
Now I am rereading my copies and I realize that I can appreciate it better now with a different perception from the first time i read it. Do read it for Warner and Kenji <3 You will know what i mean ;)
