This story was one I could not put down. Each time I stopped reading it, I would always wonder how they would untangle their messy lives to make their relationship work. I loved the unexpected twists and turns because it would make their love difficult to figure out and would have you understand how they both felt. I would rate this book a nine because it always had me engrossed in the story and wanting me to see how they would solve their problems.
