    The beginningThis started out so good I was sucked right into the story and very curious about the characters The intro was great and really helped me to get a sense of what the plot was going to be centered on I fell in love with Spencer Pierce the day he saved me from the Pirates The entire first scene really showed why she started liking Spencer but it takes the rest of the book to really delve into her feelings.Then the author switched to past tense and confused me for a bit I don t love whe [...]
