I almost quite this book half way through, so I could make up my own ending. I was pretty sure I knew how it was going to end (and I was right) and it wasn't what I wanted to read. Instead of following the romance plot cliche, I was really hoping the resolution would be about Wynter's growth rather than Wynter's ability to stand by her man while *he* grows. I wanted a story about a woman realising that it's better to actively find what you need than to passively hope someone will become what you need. I guess I wanted Wynter's redemption, not Mac's.
