I absolutely love Molly in this book.  This is a woman who holds nothing back… is free with her opinion and isn’t afraid to say what’s on her mind.  Elias is a character that you want to love, but I had a hard time with.  He was a little flat for me.  Not that he doesn’t show growth and change, but there just was something about his character arc that I didn’t love. 

That being said… I really enjoyed this story and the two of them together.  They created a friendship first, and their relationship develops naturally.  And in such a way that they are both a little caught off guard by it.  They were never expecting the connection that they created.

This is a fun low angst read that shows how much one relationship misstep can change the trajectory of your life.  Eli has let his past lead his decisions even though he can see how much that relationship wasn’t right.  There is a moment in the book that happens that I dislike how Eli handles it so much, I thought Molly did what she needed to do, but he missteps.  But then the incident kind of falls to the wayside.  It was a huge moment for them as a couple, and I felt it wasn’t resolved well.  That being said, I really enjoyed this book, and you should definitely give this a read.
