First half was a high 4 stars, second half was 2.5 stars.
I loved seeing Ace's protectiveness over Sunny and his determination to make Sunny's dreams come true, but the story started to fall apart for me towards the second half. Much suspension of disbelief required. Too much stuff going on for the sake of adding more to the plot: Burton being so conveniently close by to come rushing to their side time and time again, the convenient character of Burton himself for having access to everything they could possibly need to pull off what Ace did with just a few hours' notice, fake IDs being made in such a short time span..
Sometimes it's okay to just focus on the relationship, especially if you're focusing on a co-dependent one, which should already provide enough drama and interest on its own. And also, sometimes I really like angst in my stories (And Amy Lane has definitely pulled it off in the past), but there's a point where it shouldn't drive into melodrama which this did after the screaming and carrying on just got to be a bit too much...
I've loved Amy Lane's books in the past but this one lost its spark for me halfway. Then again, I'm never been a hardcore fan of hers, having DNF-ed the last two books I tried of hers. On the subject of complex relationships and beautiful writing, I recommend [b:Filth|7819128|Filth |M. King|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1267781725s/7819128.jpg|10853366] instead.
