    That was quite the ride Adalyn was a real tough cookie for me to fall in love with at the first of this story She came off as such an obnoxiously nasty and rude young woman, that I wasn t quite sure I d come around to liking her She kept alluding to her past, so I knew something big would unfold, and let us know why she was so hard, and intentionally pushed people away by being rude to them And big it was Adalyn had some really horrific stuff happen to her in her past, and I did eventually That was quite the ride Adalyn was a real tough cookie for me to fall in love with at the first of this story She came off as such an obnoxiously nasty and rude young woman, that I wasn t quite sure I d come around to liking her She kept alluding to her past, so I knew something big would unfold, and let us know why she was so hard, and intentionally pushed people away by being rude to them And big it was Adalyn had some really horrific stuff happen to her in her past, and I did eventually turn sympathetic towards her, and definitely warmed up to her character.Ian does everything in his power to try to win Adalyn over It takes a ton of work on his part, but Ian being the sweetheart he is, totally wins her in the end Ian had some really bad juju in his past as well It was extremely satisfying when Ian s ex got what was coming to her It was sweet seeing Ian and Adalyn come together and finally and get the happy ending they both deserve
