EVOL by Cynthia A. Rodriguez

3.5 STARS When I first heard about this book I was intrigued because it’s different and I love different. A love story that starts from the end – interesting for sure. The thing about being different is that sometimes it can be too different to the point of where it takes away from the story. […]
