My oh-so-humble thoughts
Okay, first off I LOVE collabs between writers that I absolutely adore. And this one is no exception. These girls write sooooo well together…I honestly wouldn’t be able to distinguish who wrote what, which I think is the brilliant part about it.

That said, there are so many things I love about this story. First off (because I’m re-reading as I write this up) is the interaction between Simon and Jace…they hardly ever get a good deal. But it’s so adorably funny the way they write the duo. And I love Alec (well, when do I not love Alec, I mean really?!?) but his reaction to their…shenanigans is just hilarious.

Basically, and I can’t really write much more without spoilers, you should go read it. It’s a (hugely long) one shot, but it’s still manageable to read in a short time. And it’s so totally worth it. :)
