I loved this book! I really identified with Lexi. I lost my dad 3 years ago so I can understand her mindset and how her pain has changed her behavior and her outlook. I loved seeing her interact with Ethan. Their interactions were so interesting because of how different they are. My husband and I were total opposites when we met but as we've been together , we've become more and more alike. But the opposites attract thing is still so interesting to me. I found this book to be interesting and uplifting. It also really made me think about the choices we make in life. Loved it!
