This book was almost like a farce. You knew who all the characters were and how their relationships intertwined with each other, but you just kept waiting for the bottom to fall out. The infertility issues that Marissa deals with were heart breaking. You are drawn into her life and her struggles, and her efforts to continue working in an environment that causes such heartache every day, makes you admire her strength.
And then you have Colin. If I’ve ever despised a character more than him, I’m not sure I can remember who that was. Colin was shallow, self-absorbed, egotistical, unwilling to accept blame for his part in any negative behaviors, etc.
The emotions experienced by the various characters were realistic and would play on your emotions as if you were the one dealing with the situations. The author did a great job of making you care about Marissa and Kaitlyn and the extreme emotional chaos with which they were each dealing. And to see what wonderful people they were had you cheering them on and silently encouraging them to make decisions that was the best for them individually.
Thank you to NetGalley and Shiloh Run Press for an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
