It was...okay. I don't really see the point in this novella, unless it REALLY ties into the final novel. I liked learning about Brooke but was distracted by the others, I didn't find her compelling, I wanted to know what Aria and Perry were doing every time they were mentioned. I can see where the story is going however. I think I know who she'll be with and I thought the same thing at the end of the second novel.
