Loved it loved it loved it! i really enjoyed this book! I have to admit that after the first sex sene my book got thrown across the room there was a christian grey feel to it but i hung in there and am glad to say its nothing like 50 shades! there were still moments when i wanted to scream but i loved the end so it made up for it! The storyline was amazing, i thougth it was heart warming and i think alot of people could relate to the feelings you get when you lose someone close to you! At some points i just wanted to cry! and others well...... dont read this book in your grandads living room with a mouth full of coke!

I loved all the characters in the book! Braden is such a macho man but also a real pain in the butt but equally sweet and sexy at the same time!Jocelyn is such as strong willed character! she is so kick ass! I laughed at somepoints where she was so funny and felt so sorry for her at others! if you dont love her i'll be shocked! ellie is the most amazing best friend you could have she is just so funny even when her story is heart breaking she just adds joy to the book!

If you dont like this book then i will be so surprised! its amazing and so worth the read! i know its under the 50 shade section but trust me its so much better! and nothing like it!
