Even after Everett finds out about Lacey's past, he still wants to be there for her. They are falling even harder for each other. Lacey then finds out about Everett's past. She gets mad at him for what he did, until she finds out it wasn't him afterall. In the end they are madly in love and accept every good and bad part of the each other.
I liked the book! There was very good character development. I loved the characters. There was some unnecessary drama that could have been left out, but in all the book was great. I liked how their love outweighed their dark pasts.
