So at first I thought I wouldn't really like this...and at times I wanted to slap Taryn silly. UGH! Enough with the self doubt already-and thank you Marie for actually doing it!! BUT I ended up really, really liking this book. It took on a really fun life of its own-and I really didnt mind how long it was...I actually preferred it, there were times when it was a little wordy, but I think the author really wanted to build all the characters (her website says she is also writing a book about Kyle's brother...hmmmm). The supporting characters were great, there was humor and a really well written love story. No graphic scences, but nice build up. Very excited to read book 2!!
