Vanessa: She's guarded that's for sure. She's a fifth grade teacher, driving a beat up focus, and living in a pretty questionable apartment complex. Although this is all she can afford since separating from Shane. I have to hand it to her it takes a lot of strength to leave a mean that's abusive, verbally or physically. She left his cheating ass and I couldn't be more proud!
Amanda: This lovely lady is Vanessa's best friend. She's been there for Vanessa through everything and just wants to see her happy. After Vanessa met Jackson Amanda called to invite her out to dinner...and from the moment sensed a change in her best friend. It's crazy how best friends can do that. She's everything I would want in a friend.
J.D. Rivera did a great job writing. I loved how I got to read from both their points of view. For a short read it packs quite the punch. It's fast paced which I love. You get enough background on the characters so your not left questioning anything. I know Vanessa had been through a lot, but I did get pretty frustrated with her jumping to conclusions. She should give people the benefit of the doubt. Does she give Jackson a chance? Does Shane weasel his way back in? That's something you'll have to find out for yourself. It's a great read.
With all that being said I rate this a 4 out of 5 stars.
