The ending was cute but in total the plot never caught my interest. He was a football player then fire fighter very drastically. I don’t know of a family that would really approve of that. His character lacked depth. His entire family did with how involved the main character was with them. If the story was going to involve the hurt her father experienced after her mother died, it should have explained more about that event. I didn’t like that they just wrote Landon off at the end saying everyone needs a bad boy in between. I feel bad for him. We know his mother died and he’s heartbroken. I was scared at first that he was going to rape her as well, his character being so aggressive at first. I could complain about each character and how little I still know about them so I’ll just say overall this story didn’t have enough depth, so I never was connected or cared about the characters. I thought a few times during the first half to turn the audio book off because it was so boring, then the twist finally came and even after that happened it still barely kept me listening. I wouldn’t have finished if it was a book. I wouldn’t recommend this book because of its lack of depth which is what I crave when I read a book. I want to get emotional with the characters as if they were here with me in real life and I had no attachment to this book. I gave this book two stars.
