This was an excellent book about three friends and their relationships, with each other and with other friends made in their freshman and sophomore years of college. These three friends, Lance, Imani and Melody have a great relationship, but have to figure out how to balance friends, school and romantic relationships. When Melody meets and starts dating Kevin, they quickly become attached at the hip and are inseparable, so when Kevin starts to become abusive and controlling, Melody decides to overlook the issues, and starts to blame herself for what is happening. This book is very good at covering what abuse looks like, both psychological and mental, and the view from the outside looking in (from Imani and Lance, though mostly Imani), and from the inside, with the victim often believing themselves because they are being love bombed into thinking that they are the problem and they are the reason for whatever is wrong in the relationship.
I am truly looking forward to reading the other two books in this series. The characters are relatable, and the story pulls you in from the beginning.
