I loved all the characters in this one. I really enjoyed their friendships that stood the test of time. I hate to say that I became frustrated with Callie more than once. Joe & Callie's love story takes place over several years. The middle of the book had me putting it down in frustration only to pick up up 10-30 minutes later because I just had to find out what happened next. Indecision, longing, heartbreak. I can't say much more without spoiling it. I'm looking forward to book 2, Dane & Brooklyn's story.
