Best part of story, including ending: I hate that it was so quickly rush in and it didn't give much detail or really express how the characters were feelings.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene is when Pier finally founds out that Kyle was cheating on her with his nanny because she has suspicions but ignored them and all the signs pointing to it.

Opinion about the main character: What I dislike about Pier is that she got into a fight with the nanny and had a miscarriage.
