This book had a more serious tone that some of the previous books in the series. Both Everett and Callie have gone through traumatic experiences that have shaped who they are today. Although they are attracted to each other, they are both are afraid of how their pasts may affect their relationship. Everett has an easier time moving forward, but Callie is still stuck in the past and it nearly destroys them. I loved Everett - he was so patient and loving with Callie. The romance between them felt so real, even when they had problems. It was also great to see catch up a bit with couples and characters from the previous books. I'm really looking forward to Mike's story next.
