Leaning between 4 and 5 stars. This book was perfect for the mood I have been in lately. I have been on the verge of a good cry for about a month now (Being 8 months pregnant...crying was bound to happen one of these days!) and this story finally helped trigger the flow. I appreciated the relationship with Adam and Mia. I am reading a lot of fluff books right now where everything feels a little too light or forced. "If I stay" did not feel that way to me.
The one issue I had was there was a lot of language and it was not only the more mild words which is why I will probably go with the four stars. This would definitely offend some of my book group gals.
