In this fun, yet heartfelt story, Cadie McCaffrey battled disappointment that came from unmet expectations, guilt, and the loss of a relationship that she thought was going to end in a happily-ever-after marriage.
I could easily see this movie playing out on the big screen as a wonderful romantic comedy. But, it really was so much more. My heart ached for Cadie, yet also for Will. I absolutely loved the way the author occasionally jumped from present to past, by mentioning a situation during a conversation in the present day scenario, then allowing the reader to see what actually happened in a chapter dedicated to that event. Throw in a bunch of fun chapter titles, and I could not get enough!
There was so much miscommunication in this story! That will frustrate some readers, for sure, because a sit down conversation during certain points in this four year relationship would have prevented so much of the confusion. Yet, for me, I enjoyed seeing how everything built upon itself. Will and Cadie had a lot to figure out and the journey was delightful to read about.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
After four years with her boyfriend, Cadie McCaffrey is thinking of ending things. Convinced Will doesn’t love her in the “forever” way she loves him, Cadie believes it’s time for her to let him go before life passes her by. When a misunderstanding leads to a mistake, leaving her hurt, disappointed, and full of regret, she finally sends him packing.
But for Will, the end of their relationship is only the beginning of his quest to figure out how to be the man Cadie wanted him to be. With the dubious guidance of his former pro-athlete work friends and tactics drawn from Cadie’s favorite romantic comedies, Will attempts to win her back. It’s a foolproof plan. What could possibly go wrong?
