I won't say it was rushed, per se. It's just the pace of the story up to the last chapter/epilogue is one way, and then all of the romance/tension centered on the main character is resolved solely in the "epilogue", in a couple of quick overview sentences. It feels almost like an after thought.
I can understand that you wanted to get it out there, but, honestly, if you don't feel it, maybe it should wait? Also, the way it's written, the break-up/make-up of Dylan and Libby makes no sense. There seems no reason that they would break-up, live together platonically without being at each other's throats from sexual tension (and yes, even laid back people after a while get cranky from it), and then suddenly get back together without ever discussing whatever made them break up.
Okay, to summarize, my biggest problem with this story is that it feels like it's really Ra and Brandon's story from the pacing, the central conflict, etc.
After all that, so you don't think I'm trashing your story and feel dissed or insulted or sad, I did like the story. I liked the play of the characters against each other and I liked the depth of the character development.

That was interesting. I enjoyed reading it. Although I was a little disappointed at the end, not only because it was rushed but because I felt like it missed the important parts, like who she chose in the end and why, the build up to realizing who she liked and stuff, and the actual drama of the story! Also because I was rooting for her and Skylar lol.

I really enjoyed this story but the ending, for me, was rushed.
A few chaps seemed a bit rushed as well but other than that, well done.!.

this was okay
it was a good plot but a lot was just left out
there was no relationship build up, so maybe you could work on that
in addition, the whole "i hate soccer" thing in the begining i thought was going to play more of a role in this story
there are just some comments for you to improve on
good job though - you seem to have spent quite some time on this

Okay. Loved it! i know you probably hear this alot but its true. I read you're story from first chapter to last chapter non stop! Amazing work! I actually liked the ending.
