This book is sort of a case study of what happens when we don't talk to our loved ones. Jason and Pace are sort of happily married but they have a little bit to work on, including talking to each other to make sure their relationship doesn't go astray. While I reading this book, I happened to also be taking a communication training class. I felt that Jason and Pace would have done well to take a class like that. They definitely would avoid some of the issues they faced in the book. Mis-communications can happen though, especially in relationships even those that we've been in for a long time. We don't say what we need to say or we're afraid to ask the tough questions. In that way, I thought the book was really realistic.

Pace's dad is a U.S. Senator and while the book takes place in Atlanta, you can get a little taste of that DC flavor, which I really liked.

This book is well written and really pulls you in. I found myself rooting for the characters and hoping that everything turns out okay. It's not a high brow book but the characters are really realistic and relatable.

Bottom line: This is a good quick read.
