That Epilogue took forever to end!

This was quite an unusual story coming from CoHo. Honestly, I'm not sure how to rate it. For the first half of the story, I was really surprised at the premise of the story, not your typical angsty and heart-warming NA CoHo story but an edgier, twisted and a thrilling one. With Too late she was unapologetic at making her readers feel fearful and uneasy for the most parts and just for that, for coming out of her comfort zone, she gets a huge round of an applause from me.

The Ending ruined this book for me for sure. It was rather predictable, rushed and very dramatic. This was the first time I was rooting for the bad guy aka Asa Jackson. Let me justify this twisted sense of moral before you judge me. Asa didn't have any redeeming quality, he terrified the shit out of me too, however, I couldn't help but sympathize with him. He was dealt with a shitty life and it's not his fault the way he turned out to be. His delusion and crazy obsession over Sloan made a complete sense to me. Maybe that's why I didn't like how the story ended. Yes, Asa did a lot of bad things but he never got a chance at a normal life.

So yes, I'm in a pickle about the rating, it wasn't perfect or original neither, was it bad. Now since my thoughts are flowing in form of words, my feelings are rather clear. This book had an impact on me and I will be thinking about Asa for a while now (I don't care for the happy couple) and my heart still goes out to him. Not the best work from CoHo but this book proved she is one versatile badass writer.
