3-4 stars. Sometimes I really wish there was a 3.8 star rating, ya know?



THE WRITING:

This was a sweet, romantic, quick read that hit all the right marks. The writing was fresh and well paced. The story moved along with little to no lulls.


THE CHARACTERS:

I found Shane to be a surprisingly contemplative and sentimental character who tugged at my heart strings. He let and eleven year old mistake nearly ruin him. When times were bad, he was the most happy. When times were supposed to be good, he was the most miserable.

"Shane the selfish jerk strikes again."

Jesse, as seen through Shane's eyes is someone you would want to know. He is not perfect but beautiful. Not confident but positive, clumsy but gifted.

"After all those years, all the resentment I'd felt toward you, I hadn't thought that hurting you would hurt me too."

I had to take a little bit away for some predictability in this story but I add high marks for the thrilling tummy twinges I enjoyed. I'm sure that I'll be looking for more from these authors soon.
