So while the concept of the story was pretty interesting, the characters were a bit blah for me. Rose was super whiny and caused me to grate my teeth after a while.

This story I am conflicted on. The beginning starts a bit slow and it is draged by that best friend's wife being there. That kind of stalled the story.

I think the male lead's history with the theater group could have used a little bit of expansion on it, but I did like the game at the park that they all played in.
