I thought I would love this one… but ended up just liking it. It was okay.
Things I did like.
1.) The story.
I liked Julian and the fact that he was an injured Marine. That he comes home in one state and eventually heals in more than one way.
Loved his growth in the novel and I just liked him as a character.
And really that’s where it ended for me. I did not like Cami at all. I don’t know what exactly it was about her… she seemed really really immature, she was over dramatic about everything, and she didn’t seem real. I mean there is one thing about being polite and considerate, but she just did it to the extreme and it seemed fake. I also felt like her relationship with Julian progressed way to quickly. I guess I wanted a little bit more build up and tension!
Side note: I thought her dad was sort of a jerk. He did finally support her at the end, but it took him long enough.
I’m sad that this one didn’t work for me. Hopefully I’ll be able to try another one from this author in the future.
