For Rose Zarelli, freshman year was about controlling her rage. Sophomore year was about finding her voice. With all that behind her, junior year should be a breeze, right? Nope. When a horrific video surfaces, Rose needs the one person she wants to be done with, the person who has broken her heart twice—Jamie Forta. But as the intensity between them heats up, Rose realizes she isn’t the only one who needs help. The thing is, Jamie doesn’t see it that way—and that could cost them both everything.
This was one of my most anticipated reads of 2015, even though for some reason it took me a whole year to actually read. But nonetheless, I loved the first two books in the series Confessions of an Angry Girl and Confessions of an Almost Girlfriend. But let me just say, I was so, SO disappointed with the final book. I don't think you even understand.
First of all, I had forgotten what had happened in the last book, but this book doesn't take off where the last one ends, it starts off... well I don't know how long after but I'd say at least a few months.
I don't know if it's because I am older than I was when I first read this, or if Rose just changed, but I found I didn't really like her. She seemed to be all high and mighty about herself, but she was still immature and just annoying. I also found the love interest to be quite unhealthy. Not only did I not like where James' character went in this book, but I just found I didn't like his attitude and I honestly didn't understand why these two characters were together at all. From what you get to see of their relationship, it's completely one sided. I swear there were maybe three times in the whole book where I thought, yes, he's a nice guy, he loves her, I completely understand.
There were also parts which were quite boring and didn't really do much for the story in my opinion. So then, I got through all of that, only to be thoroughly disappointed with the ending. I feel like the characters all went through so much and they were finally in a good place and then nothing was resolved! Spoilers: honestly you go through three bloody books with Rose and James being on and off constantly, only to have them not even end up together in the end. Seriously!! It ends with Rose being all high and mighty again and realising they are better off being apart and all that crap, and good for her, but no. I didn't like it. I don't like when characters become all philosophical at the end of a book because it's so out of character. It's simply done to make it look like they have had some major character growth, but they haven't and I'm not buying it.
I will say, the book wasn't terrible. There were part which were pretty entertaining, and the little plot twists throughout the book were quite unexpected. So I am glad I read it. If I had a chance for a do-over I would still read it; but it's definitely not a book I will reread.
Would I recommend? As a whole, I would recommend this series because the first two books were fantastic.
