listened to this on audible. the narrator did a good job.
pace falters in places, unnecessarily wordy and repetitive and it's easy to get distracted. it was unnecessarily drawn out with repetitive inner monologues. overall a decent listen
even through this horrible situation jasmine was still an unlikeable character and hosea still garnered your sympathies as did others who were a part of the bush family. I was left wondering again if Jasmine loves Hosea or just loves being a first lady.
the alexis/brian arc was uninteresting-alexis' character is still unlikeable. maybe if her character took accountability for the outcome of her situation then maybe, but I doubt it. the character was created as a judgemental, close minded person, ridiculous and remained that way with no growth thus far. What was the draw to her for Brian? Did he just enjoy chasing a woman? There relationship didn't make sense in this book for me.
alexis, jasmine and kyla remind me of a description i saw on social media called the petty olympics.

Although the secondary story threw me for a bit of a loop, and Jasmine was a bit of a mess in more ways than one, and some parts were very hard to listen to because of the sensitive nature- I really did enjoy this book. It was a great reminder that although God does permit certain things, they are not from him. And while I would have liked for Brian to be more present end, the ending was still great just as it was.
