*There's a lot I left out in this synopsis, but shoot me later. I can explain. I WILL NOT SPOIL THIS BOOK.
The story was a little predictable, which did disappoint me. I don't know why, but I likened this novel with Beautiful Disaster. No idea whyyy, but I did feel a little let down by the plot and I kind of just skimmed through a lot of it. I felt a little flustered while reading it because of all of the problems the character was handling. There were just way too many in one chapter.
My god, the feels. As the author wrote in her acknowledgements "The creation of good fiction begins with raw, honest emotions." She nailed it. The terror, the love, the anxiousness. I could just FEEEELLLLL it all the way through. While Jacqueline's boy drama did get irritating, I perked up during the danger zone scenes. On a personal note, I did see a lot of similarities between my relationship and Jacqueline's and Kennedy's. I'll worry about that later.
I wish I could give this novel more stars, but none of the characters clicked with me and the plot was predictable. I loved the honesty in which the author wrote. However, the scenes were well described and the plot well rounded.
