I picked up this book because my interest was peaked by the movie trailer.

This was a decent read. While predictable for sure, it was a decent read. I enjoyed the interaction between Logan and Ben. Clayton and Logan are like total opposites, and you totally know who Beth was gonna end up with. Every character played the same old cliched characters we have seen over and over again. Only Zeus was slightly different and I wanted to see more of the dog than some other characters at times, that shows just how much invested I was with the characters.

The ending was very dramatic and drawn out, making you think the worst has happened when you knew way ahead of time what the ending will be <- happily ever after of course!

This was a good read for me as I am a big fan of Nicholas Sparks and although this wasn't my favorite of his many books, it was still very good.

I liked it a lot! I don't think it's my favorite book, but it's a really good, deep read that will make you cry at the end, either happy or sad tears. The characters are three-dimensional and very lifelike. If you want a great read, then pick this one up!
