This is going to be fairly short because I'm not sure how to write my review without giving too much away. So, here goes:
I liked the story. It's high school, at times silly, but overall an enjoyable read.
I was pulled into the story instantly and wanted to see how it would play out. It certainly felt like a game between the two, one of burning lust and longing. And the main characters have their moments where I either love them or want to snap at them.
Thatcher and his friends pretty much ran the school, and kept guys from bothering Violet. She'd get annoyed at his possessiveness, but on the other hand, couldn't deny her pull to him. There were times I'd yell at them to just admit their feelings, and when things were finally starting to smooth out, I would get frustrated with Thatcher's back and forth and Violet's insecurities. The latter was mainly fueled by Thatcher's behavior. Once I understood what he'd gone through and got a clearer picture of his home life, it all made sense.
Again, it's an interesting read and my emotions were all over the place. But I still liked how things worked out in the end, and I'm looking forward to Arwen and Cole's individual stories next.
