Lucas ignores the rules, stands up to the snobs, and warns Bianca to be careful—even when it comes to caring about him. “I couldn’t stand it if they took it out on you,” he tells Bianca, “and eventually they would.” But the connection between Bianca and Lucas can’t be denied. Bianca will risk anything to be with Lucas, but dark secrets are fated to tear them apart . . . and to make Bianca question everything she’s ever believed. ——————————————————————————— My review: I really, Really enjoyed this… Read more »
