Things I liked
*I immediately wanted to hug Willa. We are not sure what she did, but it was something that she was very remorseful for, and something her mother abandoned her (again) for. She wanted to make better choices, do well in school, and make her grandmother proud. When I found out what Willa had been dealing with, my heart broke right open.
*Gunner really won me over, when he started being real. In the beginning of the book, I sort of thought he was a jerk, with his love-em-and-leave-em attitude towards women and locker room talk, but then he started shedding this "armor", and what was left was someone with a lot of repressed pain. I was really happy that Willa coming back to town, prompted Brady to renew his friendship with Gunner as they both rekindled their friendship with Willa.
*Willa's Grandmother is tucked in my heart with all the other fab grandmas I have been reading about lately and with my own. She was a really special lady, with a huge heart filled with so much love.
*I cannot lie, the drama in this one was so soap opera worthy, and I loved it!
I loved friends-to-more stories, and am also a fan of second chance romances, so this was a solid read for me. It also got better as the story progressed, and I was pleased with where Glines took the story by the end of the book.
