This was a nice story. It's not often you get the perspective of the person involved in causing emotional damage for another, so it was great seeing things from Nikki's POV, even if she wasn't the one solely responsible.
The moment the story opened up I knew she wasn't the person everyone thought her to be, including her parents. Nikki basically went down for something that the real culprits didn't take the blame for, and she lost a lot as a result. It was nice of Pax to make her realize the goodness in her and find herself again. And I like that he wasn't this perfect guy, but someone with his own issues that didn't allow them to keep him down. Pax was going through some serious stuff and the fact that he could remain so humorous and supportive to others amidst it all showed the kind of person he was. I loved his character and found him to be the best gift for Nikki in a time where she thought all was hopeless.
Overall, really nice writing and an interesting plot. Looking forward to reading more from Karole.
