My Review: 4 1/2 stars
I went into reading this thinking that I would really not like it. Nothing could be further than the truth. I loved it, even when it was breaking my heart. I love books that you connect to on an emotional level, and this one totally connected with me. The writing is fabulous, the plot line flows along smoothly. The characters - oh, they are outstanding! The blurb about the books tells you the basic plot, but it's the emotion that you feel when reading it that makes you want to cry or hit something, depending on the scene. I really like that the book was written from both of the main characters POV's. That's what makes the difference in this, I think. It's not one sided, so you know how each character feels as the book progresses. J.L. Berg definitely has a new fan!
