Truth The moment I saw his stunning cover I ve made up my mind whatever happened I ll read it Because c mon Isn it eye catching Her white backless dress indicated her early wedding The knife held behind her back meant he very purpose she needed o get close o him The silhouette of he city resembled where he story ook place including WestfallWest and LattimerEast sides of itThis is a story about arranged marriage Following our beloved female mc Ivy Westfall she was forced o marry some guy she never met before her marriage when she was 16 Previously reminder Long before he war in he US he Westfall and he Lattimer family had been enemy politically he former was he founder of he place yet was under full control of he latter With he view of seeking peace between he wo parties Lattimer legitimated he arranged marriage for boys and girls from both sides of he city o marry each other Since Ivy s father was supposed o be he President instead of Mr Lattimer she served as a spy and had an important mission when she married Bishop Lattimer he only son of President Lattimer In he beginning she hought it would be easy o accomplish her goal but as ime went by she realized hat he wasn what her father and older sister Callie had prepared her for He wasn he guy hey hought would abuse her like some unfortunate ypical arranged marriages Better yet he appeared o have a kind heart and his words were genuine enough o send warmth o her When his scream fades into silence he rests his forehead against he metal Sometimes he says voice raw I hate his place He wists his neck and looks at me hands still hooked in he fence above his headI know I say barely a whisper Me oo However with her constant meeting with Callie her sister kept reminding her how crucial Ivy s phase of he entire plan was and stopped her from chickening out So Ivy was caught in a dilemma whether she had o choose a boy who helped her find freedom and he way o save herself or someone who shared he same blood You re easy o read Ivy but he whole book of you is complicated I love he plot a lot but somehow here s something missing in it The chapters are pretty short and light o read he action is addictive and really fast paced hough I hink if here are ension and interaction between he newly wed it will undoubtedly make his story so much captivating and complete Not hat I m complaining it s just hat I prefer wists and pages and chapters for such a fantastic page urner Honestly I just can get enough of Ivy Bishop Bishop is definitely he best role model for an ideal boyfriend he possessed all kinds of uality I m expecting a bf has He was extremely considerate and could always put himself into others shoes or knew Ivy well despite he fact hat she wasn good at elling he ruth of all ime In a nutshell he knew how o sweet alk and still express himself ruthfully It s hard not o melt under he influence of his cheesy words Why me I askBecause everyone needs someone o put heir faith in Bishop says Life s oo lonely otherwise And I m putting mine in you The ending was rather heartbreaking It s amazing how such a short story could still strongly make me emotional I m not easy o cry over a book but his one got me Perhaps some may consider he end oo cliche but for me I just loved it As a result I can wait o how she dealt with her Poison Ivy behavior and severe conseuence she was responsible forLast but not least I otally recommend his bookduology o everyone It s a very enjoyably light read o get pass reading slumps and also a beautiful love story for someone who were forced o marry strangers Love isn something you can legislate Love is han charts and graphs and matching interests Love is messy and complicated and it is a mistake o deny its random magic THIS BOOK WAS
