This book almost broke me. You will feel all of the feels (yes ALL of them)...
I think that for most of the book I was on Brendon's side. All the lies that were told to him and all the accusations just ripped out my heart. I felt so bad for Brendon, even in the first book. The Biceps just drew me in with the way he cared for Maci, helped her out, he was just such a good guy.
But then he goes back to Amanda and just Gah!....it was just heartwrenching. This couple goes through something so terrible and it hurt them, but ultimately made them stronger.
I didn't really like Amanda at first, but she grew on me a bit. I did admire the fact that she did anything she could for her son. She was determined, and while she still loved The Biceps, she didn't need him (well, until she did).
I liked that everything progressed at a reasonable rate. I also liked the fact that so much of their back story was provided. I loved getting to know what they were like and what exactly went down the last time they were together.
We still get to see the other characters in this book as well. I'm excited for the next book, I can't wait!
I would give this book a five, but I just couldn't forgive Amanda the way Brendon did. So a very high four, and well worth the read!
