This book is a wonderful love story told from dual person perspective that at times pull at my heartstrings. I love Palmer for his vulnerability despite his macho outlook and the chemistry that both Palmer and Malia have. It is not just a love story. It was filled with dilemma especially at the part when Malia decide to go for the fertility treatment.
