I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a fun, silly,enjoyable read. Cody definitely added to the story and I just loved him. I liked the pace and the plot of this book a lot. I loved Seb and Grace together. At times this choked me up and at others made me smile. I do think Grace should have let go of the past sooner than she did and I think Seb should have gotten over being full of himself and being a butt a lot sooner than he did also. All and all this was a good read. I loved the characters and the ins and outs and I recommend.
