I felt so many emotions while reading this book. I was happy and hopeful for the two one moment and then my heart was breaking for them in the next. The constant struggle to defend each other to their family and friends was frustrating. The inner turmoil Layla and Nico grapple with is saddening. I admired Nico for being the glue that held his family together and trying to give them the best life he possibly could. I loved Nico and Layla together. Their love for each other is totally apparent but the timing for their relationship is off. The odds seem to be stacked against them but I’m holding out hope that they’ll find their way back to each other and overcome everything keeping them apart.
These two are made for each other. I fell so deeply in love right along with them. Nico has the weight of the whole of his family on his shoulders but has plans to escape this suffocating life, but when he meets Layla it is game over.
I was sucked it and spat out at the end of this book, I need more! I NEED to find out what happens next!
We learn that people do so many things for the ones they love. Can these two stand the test and stay together? That's the million dollar question...You really do need to know what happens next.

I love Nico. His character is everything I love. He's kind, caring, attentive, and doesn't realise how great he is. Layla annoyed the life out of me at the beginning, but she grew on by the end.
I do hope Layla and Nick get a happy ever after, because race and ethnicity means nothing in this day and age. They might appear to be different, but really they're not.
I actually ended up buying books two and three halfway through as I needed to know what happened to Layla and Nico.
They were from opposite sides of the wealth scale and this bothered Nico more than Layla . I felt so much adoration for him, looking out for his family and putting them first . Even though Layla was born into wealth she had to fend for herself and found it very hard. I think that's why she understood Nico so well.
I liked the fact that these characters had to work at life and love but as usual life doesn't always to plan. Nico is certainly the gorgeous bad boy that girls fall for and I think once once you fall in love with characters you enjoy the book so much more. A great read!!
It honestly will go in my top 5 of favourite books. Can't wait for book 2.
