According to the only e-reader that I own, I'm such a slow and lazy reader that I still got more than one hundred hours to go to reach the end of the story. But it's not because I'm such a slow, or such a lazy reader as my e-reader shows me to be, but because this enchanting story captivates me and simultaneously confuses me, and I find the chapters really hard to read through, even though they aren't that long. Anyway, nothing much has happened in the last chapter, or the chapter before that chapter, and I'm still having mixed feelings about Julian's and Ivy's sleeping arrangement. She was so feisty in the beginning and then she just relented to his wishes, because, you know, he was so damn attractive and so damn hot, she just couldn't resist his charm and had no other choice but to accept his deal. Well, she had one choice, she could have gone away and starved to death and preserved her dignity. So you see, nothing romantic at all. Julian has shown some character depth though, but not that kind, that I as a reader am searching for in a character. And neither did Ivy. Thus, Susanna is still my favorite character, and at the moment, she's the only reason why I find this story captivating enough and why I even remotely desire to finish it.
