Dave's style is similar to Marisa de los Santos' in her book "Love Walked In" but not as poetic. I enjoyed the journey the main character, Annie, takes as she discovers herself and what a loving relationship can be, although her journey is unrealistically fast. Since the book focuses on Annie and her journey, not much page time is given to other main characters which makes them two-dimensional. I would have liked for her love interest to be more complex instead of so stoic and perfect. Exploring the growth of a relationship between two imperfect individuals is much more interesting and realistic. This book is better for adults because of worldly lifestyles, language, and theme.
