A few months later, they have a scare with her father landing him in the hospital for a while and he meets up with a women. Wedding Plans... Step=Daughters... Tragedy - OH MY!

This book was great. In the beginning, it was a bit slow but soon the book picked up. Event after event, boy after boy! The auther made sure that you knew every character like they were your own sister or father. She was sure to leave NOTHING out. A little unrealistic at times but was a fantastic read! The title can be a little misleading - this book doesnt have as much romance as it does heartbreak but most of the heartbreak is from family members. dont be mislead!
Content: This book contains some graphic sexual content and brief crude language.
