I truly liked this story a lot.Brady made it hard to like him very much but I did realize he was hurting. I loved how Palmer put others before her own happiness. I do think Palmer should have made Brady work harder to get back in bed with her. But I also understood where she was coming from I did choke up at times and smiled at others while reading this which is a good thing. I felt like I was there with Palmer and Brady. This was well written and had a fast pace and I thought the plot was very good. I hurt for Palmer when she hurt so bad and everything else she had to deal with. But i liked the characters and i loved Palmer’s character. I loved the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.
