More like 3.5 stars.
This could have been a really amazing book. I like the author. I do. But this really wasn't long enough. The book had so much potential and it's not something I read a lot, but it needed to be longer or to have less secondary characters in it. Somewhere along the line this book became less of a romance, for me, and more a family drama.
Saying all that this book had some really good points. There's also the epilogue that takes place a year after the main story.
Definitely a book for those who want something easy to read. If you want something really complicated, long, hot, or romantic. You probably should look elsewhere.
