Do you think Ruby made the right choice to be with Reed?

Throughout the book I kept changing my mind between the two of them. I think she did end up with the right guy, Reed. The connection seemed strong to me.

I think she did. I preferred Reed to his friend.

I think the author portrayed Brent in a certain way so that the "only" choice would be Reed.

If Brent wasn't so jealous and possessive I think I would pick him. His actions after Ruby starts dating Reed are upsetting and really underscore why he is the wrong choice for Ruby.

I am on team Reed.

Team Reed forever! Undoubtedly, Reed is the right guy for Ruby.

Team Reed! Ruby had a deep connection from the beginning. Brent was too angry and possessive to be a good match for her.

I am halfway through the book. So far I am on Team Brent but that may change. :) Actually, I can't say I like either team at the moment!

I kept bouncing back and forth, because I had a soft spot for Brent, even though he's a bad boy. Brent was very jealous because he was never faithful.
From the start, Ruby crushed on Reed, but their timing was off. It was when Ruby decided to be just friends with Reed that they fell in love.

They were both immature players who would probably give her an embarrassing disease.
