For Ceejay Lovejoy, life in Perfect, Indiana, has been anything but. Abandoned by her parents and left pregnant by her boyfriend, Ceejay has had to fight every step of the way to carve out a future for herself and her daughter. She swears off men for good until the day Noah Langford appears on her doorstep.
This book although it has strong themes and complex emotions was a light read. It deals with PTS and abandonment. I really like the characters especially CeeJay’s determination and the way that she makes something of herself despite all that life has decided to throw at her. I thought that it was a little bit shallow that she had to have a man to love her to get over her feeling of abandonment.
The romance was well written and so was the child’s voice, I was genuinely impressed with how believable both the child and the romance was written. It was the perfect balance and I really enjoyed that aspect of the story.
What I really hated about this book was the fact that by the end it was so overly dramatic that it had lost its original appeal, and I found myself lacking sympathy and remorse for the characters, it all became a little bit too much for me to bear. I wish that they would have dialled back on the drama.
Overall I thought this book was going to have so much potential, but at the end of the day it became overly dramatic and that sucked all potential that it ever had.
