Sweet romance with city girl meets country boy and exes involved. Nice change for romance readers.
This book seemed to have been written for older teen girls. The characters have lines filled with responsibility yet they all seem to act like middle/high schoolers when it comes to relationships. Hard to believe. Plus, I can’t imagine a woman who had been physically and emotionally abused for years jumping right into the kind of relationship described.
Gosh, what a disappointment
