The review of this Book prepared by Shel

A great book, and an easy read. This book breaks the rules as far as the "trashy romance novel." Along with great love stories, there is also the relationships that last throughout the book. I read this book in just a couple days, and I didn't want it to end! I was routing for Tully to do the right thing. She was a strong woman. Recommended to anyone that wants a juicy story and a good cry!
