Rating: 4.5 stars
Would you believe me if I say I'd put off this book for quite a long time because I thought that a cop guy as the hero in a book is not cool? Well, now that I've read it I realized I was Totally. Freaking. Wrong! Because the whole time, I was swooning and crushing and gushing over John After. He absolutely took a place on my top book boyfriends! And yeah, so much for putting this off because, seriously, from all the books I've read of Jennifer Echols this is the one I so enjoyed the most!
It was my first time to encounter a really rebellious heroine and at first I didn't think I would be able to love her but again, I was wrong because I really did love Meg! Meg was a funny, smart, and witty character. I loved her sense of humor, her rebelliousness and being dangerous made her more an interesting character. Her story that caused her to have that kind of attitude was very compelling. It was a bit heart wrenching and through that I was able to understand her completely. John After on the other hand was her opposite. He was this one hot cop who was so disciplined and pretty strict in following rules. He had this weird obsession about the 'bridge' and staying in town. Turns out he had a really bad memory about it and thought that by doing what he's doing it will changed what had happened from the past.
I enjoyed those dialogue between the two of them which was really funny, cute and steamy! And whenever John blushes at something he said about Meg, awww, it was just like the cutest thing ever! Haha! But what I loved the most was how this two people met and was able to cure and change each other. It was great to see Meg and John growing and learning, caring and loving each other and eventually letting go of their past. The ending was very heart warming. It was touching and emotional and those few words Meg said was just so beautiful.
I would definitely recommend this. This is a touching, wonderful and fun read. Not overly emotional but will still tug strings from your heart. A very good realistic read. :))
