I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )

This is such an emotional read. Despite the dark subject matter it really grabs you and won't let go. SEP at her best. ( )

I did not like this one as much as This Heart of Mine, Natural Born Charmer, or It Had to be You. I found it lacking in funny dialogue (I suppose my expectations should be lower given the seriousness of some of the issues that run through this book but I've come to expect a certain amount of entertaining banter and didn't get it here) and I really disliked most of the characters. I think the only character really enjoyed was Kristy. Her side story with Ethan was actually more enjoyable for me than the main storyline. ( )

I enjoyed this book. I really liked Rachael. She used humor to help her get through some really rough situations. I felt like SEP did a good job expressing what Gabe was going through. It was very sad. I really did enjoy this book and the only reason I gave it 4 1/2 stars instead of 5 was because it was just a little bit too sad for me. I have a hard time reading about children who are sick or die and I'm not sure if it's a subject I care to approach when I pick up a romance. However, I did really enjoy the book overall. ( )
