This was a sweet romance and a very quick read. It started off interesting enough. Both the characters are hesitant to start a relationship but they can't deny the sparks. What through me was once they were together everythign was so rushed. It felt like I was holding down the fast forward button and just zooming by. Another thing that through me was the insta-attraction/love. It felt a bit forced and beleive it or not a bit too fast even for what I'm used to reading about. What made it more great, interesting and not so-typical was the added suspense and mystery. You'll be rooting for their happy ending and hope that admist all the drama that evenetually that will be possible.

The amount of drama in this book was ridiculous. Everywhere you look there's something popping up from crazy exes to secrets that remain hidden under old shoe boxes in someones closet. Every-time you stop and take a breath another dreaded mishap occurs. After awhile it became a bit unrealistic and unbelievable.
 However through all this Dustin and Riley somehow persevere. They get their HEA and thank the Lord for that. The drama these two went to would send a normal person to the crazy-house in seconds flat. Needless to say I'm glad I wasn't Riley even with Dustin's hotness. There is only so much drama and surprises one can take and this girl sees her fair share.

Be prepared to not only love soem of the characters like Riely's friend Abby but just as equally loathe some of the others. One for instance is Dustin's mom. She takes the cake in the worst mother of the year award. You know the type. Rich, stuck-up woman who will never see anyone that is good enough for her son and does any and all she can to control his life even if that means threatening and ruining his relationships. She was such a drag. She butts in more times than I could count and I really wish Dustin would have stood up to her more or really just laid into her. Also maybe I'm getting sick of the played out 'rich mother' card but I felt these two had so many other issues happening that a mother butting in was just an added dilemna that drowned out other parts of the story. 

Overall I enjoyed the story. It was literally overflowing with drama and deceit but I finished it and was thoroughly pleased with their HEA. I thought it would never come. This certainly works as a NA novel and I would recommend it to fans of the genre but be warned the dramatic elements sometimes overthrow the main dynamic of the story and like my case you may find yourself pulling your hair out before the end.
