This book was absolutely necessary for the back characters. There were no surprises with Hessa, but we needed to really see who Steff was (that psycho stew was simmering for well over a year), understand the hidden Molly better, and realize that I was always right to hate Zed. Loved this series.

I am obsessed with this collection! I first watched the movie on Netflix. I fell I love! I couldn’t wait for the 4th episode on Netflix, so I purchased the series on Audiobooks. I am awe struck by the books. So much more detail. The movie is abbreviated and edited. I have now listened to the series for the 8th time. I love these characters and feel their wants! I do see the movie characters in the book characters and get lost in the narrative. Love, Love these young actors in the beautiful written love story. They made my eyes roll!!!!! I will continue to listen ….always!
