Can they overcome secrets which warrant a very difficult life altering response?

My Review:
A stunning romance novel that will drive readers crazy!  I fell in love with this novel after just the first two chapters.  Jennifer's writing style is absolutely incredible - so crisp, clean, but descriptive.  I instantly knew exactly who the characters where, could picture the University and the city(ies) the characters were in.  I loved every second of this book.

I'm not going to lie, I was a little nervous when everyone said it was a "romance novel".  Modern day romance novels have become so...uhm... erotic that I just can't read them.  But this is a perfect depiction of a modern day love story.  I definitely can't wait to see the movie!  It's going to be a huge success as a movie!  The relationships created between all of the characters - Parker, Jackson, Addison, the whole gang of 6, Mr. Hamilton, the University... - was perfect.  Each relationship was created with such detail it created such a rich back-story.  The other amazing part is, Jennifer could take any of these groups of people and write short stories with them as branches of this novel, a mini-series if you will.

5 stars for this stunning romance novel.  A perfect way to sit back and read a book on a weekend!  LOVE this one!  I highly recommend this novel to anyone who loves a good romance novel that isn't too heavy or full of erotic craziness (ages 17+ for mild sexual content).
