** spoiler alert ** I liked this book but thinking about it, I'm not exactly sure why, lol. Am I the only one who wanted to grab Rachel by the shoulders and shake some sense into her? And a healthy dose of self-esteem? Or wonder why she'd be friends with the insufferable Darcy for so long? Or why the heck she had any compunctions about sharing Darcy's infidelity with Dex?? While we're at it, let's ask Dex why he stuck with Darcy for seven years before coming to his senses!

I guess I admire the fact that the author kept me guessing about how it would all turn out. And despite everything, I did root for Dex and Rachel to wind up together, and I believed in their love.

At the end of the day, I was looking for a light read this time around, and even given the subject matter of infidelity and broken relationships, this fit the bill!
