Yet Tom Evans was a kind and compassionate man. When Lark Lawren
I need to figure out how to become friends with Marcia. You see, she writes her books for her friends. This book was written for her friend Sandy, and I just think how awesome would that be to have a book writt...more

This book did not disappoint. I loved getting to hear Slater and Lark's story. It was a deliciously spun tale of second guessing one's self, and finding that love doesn't always fall in...more
I had a hard time putting it down. I like to read to relax before going to bed, but this book kept me wide awake turning the pages and then obsessing over it, making it impossible to sleep.

For the first time, ever, since rating books, I have found this book to be the most challenging to rate.

I really feel she has a great talent for telling a story. The reason I only gave this book...more
This was a really really good one. I would have liked Slater to remain aloof a little longer but other than that this was a great read. I liked Larks little secret, there at the end. I knew it had to be something like that, but it was surprising. A fun, fast paced, greatly entertaining read!
