This isn't the most positive review ... I like being honest with my visitors, so here goes ...
Ian and Hayley became step siblings three years ago, although they knew of each other all through high school. Halyley's high school best friend, Rachel, knows about the crush Hayley has on Ian before they become siblings. After Hayley starts dating a guy Rachel liked she starts to date Ian. She ends up cheating on him days after he proposes to her. Ian is a war hero and after coming back from his most recent tour, him and Hayley find themselves home alone for the weekend. Neither of them know that the other secretly burns to be together. Temptation finally takes over and they both get what they always wanted ... each other. Hayley wants to give Ian a baby, the family he's always wanted but their lives get turned upside down when Rachel shows up at the front door nine months pregnant claiming the baby to be Ian's.
I wanted to LOVE this book but it was so difficult. The story is very tortured and sad, both Hayley and Ian have messed up families (although Hayley's Dad is the only voice of reason this whole book) and want the family they never had. About 20 chapters into the book that's where I got lost ... I thought a lot of the story was drug out too much and I honestly skipped through most of it til I got to the final 4 chapters. Ian is a very lovable character and you find yourself rooting for him but he could have been written with a better back bone. I mean I understand where he's coming from but he was a little weak, even while trying to be honorable.
The ending ends way too fast too. I would have rather see a couple chapters of that instead of the middle going on and on and on. I don't want to tell you NOT to read this book, overall it is a good book, there's just a good portion of it that makes you want to rip your hair out and scream.
