I highly enjoyed this book. It was a nice stray from the norm and had some really good lessons in it about acceptance and assumptions. I read it in one sitting and just fell in love with it. It is one of those books that with writing alone is a Solid high rating, but with the extra special bits thrown in to make it a top rated in my book. Not all authors can weave a story that not only draws you in, but invests you in the characters. This is one of those books and N.K. Smith is one of those Authors. It's that extra special part of the book that boosts it that extra star. Fox and Saige are both very complex and very real characters. I loved the fact that they both saw themselves as "flawed" but it was still pushed as a theme of acceptance through the book. Its stressed to accept people for who they are not who you think they should be. In our current world self-esteem is a hot commodity, and these two find their way to it through love and each others support. I loved the story line and the side plots going on. I felt it kept attention and really drew you in. Myka and Val were wonderful and I loved every scene we got them in. It added a little flair to the story and helped in the page turning angst. Loved the ending even though I wished we had gotten more afterwards. It was slightly abrupt, but at the same time I loved every second of it. I felt it was fitting and encompassing on the issues that Fox and Saige were trying to overcome. Can't wait to read more from this Author. Definitely on my To-Watch List :)
