I want MORE!!

This was awesome! I can understand how some people may not like Frankie because she tends to run before facing whats bugging her. But can you really blame her esp with how her own mother and father were. I don't know if I would have been as forgiving to Benny's family so fast I mean she was giving them the silent treatment for a reason in the hospital but then I can see her deciding thats its not worth the grudge. I was mad at Benny for letting her run like he did, I thought he was so determined to have her. Why did he wait? Drama but glad it didn't last long. For a long distance relationship I think they did a bang up job there really wasn't much drama there and I thought there would have been. I was checking out the Goodreads rating and I am really surprised at the 2 and 3 stars maybe you have to experience this book audio book style to truly appreciate it. Either way I was not disappointed in the least. I think Frankie grew as a character and was open and honest when she could be. And I think Benny brought that out in her and had her back when she needed it. So all in all I gave is 5 star's all the way through. Enjoy Everyone!

It's ok

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I love Kristen Ashley books, but this one... I dunno I feel like the girl's kind of a push over... I get it, hot guys but I feel like a lot of the women in her books forgive because the hot guy is "ready". The women are constantly being put off and I dunno I feel like there should be more anger, they're to forgiving...unless I am just an angry person?

What three words best describe Amanda Bruton’s performance?

I could hear her slurp every-once in awhile and it putting. Otherwise she did a good job
