Really slow pacing, but the story held my attention. Jessa could have used some more backbone. She stands up to Tariq at some points, but I thought it was weird near the end that she still thought Tariq wouldn't want to marry her. I also thought Tariq needed a little more personality other than just being an aggressive, standoffish male. I wanted him to show some more emotion. And as bittersweet the ending was, I liked it. It was a suitable outcome.
