I liked this book okay. The writing was clear and the characters well developed. I think the story line itself was what I found not as interesting.
There was a lot of emotional upheaval, positive and negative family relationships, and life-changing decisions that filled up the pages in this book. There were times I would gasp out loud and other times that I would find myself on the edge of tears.
Rachel was a manipulative, irritating, arrogant, self-absorbed, family destroying female. And while Bradley’s life suddenly changed based on one rash decision, he was hesitant to be committed to the situation in which he found himself. He needed to grow up and take responsibility for his actions.
Grace was a much more mature and put-together woman. But she had her own emotional baggage she was dealing with…which she does attempt to do. Grace’s maturity allows her to not be intimidated by others. And even though she holds Bradley’s feet to the fire, she comes to grips with her true feelings and reaches out to others to get advice and feedback.
While this wasn’t one of my favorite books, the author does a good job with her writing style and the character development. Thank you to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
