"She wanted the fairy tale, and unless the hero likes the darker delights of sex, power, and money, then I'm not the right type of knight in shining armor."

The story deals with a few issues including childhood trauma and physical abuse. This is where I struggled with the story. Taylor made a decision to handle her ex instead of reporting him to the authorities. I understand the character's intention but I still struggled with her decision. Although the ending is a happy one, there are still unresolved issues for the group. 3 Stars.
