4.5 stars and I'll tell you why under the cut. And it's super spoilery, so if you don't want to know how the book ends, don't read. THEY DON'T EVEN KISS! I feel like there was so much drama, so much angst (literally at the point of tears....my heart broke for Elliot). Kai and Elliot have been through so much. And then, when she finally decides to leave with him, he kisses her knuckles? HER KNUCKLES? And no I haven't read Persuasion, so perhaps there was no mouth kissing Austen's book, but I just don't feel satisfied with the the conclusion of the story.However, regardless about my feelings under the cut, the book was amazing. I would definitely recommend it.
