I liked this book a lot. I loved Eric and Callie together . This had my attention form the beginning to end. It did drag at times for me but not enough for me to stop reading this. I did get confused at times between the present and the past. I did love how Callie and Eric grew throughout this book. There was realism in my opinion in this book. This book choked me up at times. I didn’t like Eric for awhile but as he grew I changed my opinion of him. Both callie and Eric were broken and I felt made this book more interesting. There is : young actors, a first kiss, malipination, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, mental abuse, secret love, personal baggage, love triangle. Ruined life, college, family baggage, tabloid interference, and so much more in this book. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend
