My personal Rating-
Forget what I said, this one is now memorable. Mandie & Joe. Joe & Mandie! That’s all we need to know about this one, right? Mannnnndie & Joooooe! :D
Fangirl’s little shipper heart aside, I honestly don’t remember this one, but it was a good one! It’s getting more and more bittersweet as we get closer to the end of this series!

See y’all on Monday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
