This was a sweet, short story.
Angel is young, beautiful, and somewhat successful. But her life has been on hold for sixteen years - ever since she was forced to give up her son for adoption (forced by the father's family). Her family has made many allowances for her depression but her sister, Cara, is getting married and begs her to be Maid of Honor. Reasonable enough. Except, the Best Man is Mitch, the brother of the boy who got her pregnant and then ditched her. His mere presence is enough to bring back terrible memories and a terrifying attraction. Can Angel avoid him? And should she?
There were a few potholes that could easily be fixed.
1) Why didn't Mitch's brother of parents attend the wedding. The groom was Mitch's first cousin... I would have loved to see Angel face the people who nearly destroyed her life.
2) Angel never told her friends or family who impregnated her or the true reason she chose adoption. A sixteen year old keeping that type of secret? Please.
3) After sixteen years of panic attacks and little social interaction, it only takes Angel a month of therapy to heal and rejoin the world. I would have a preferred a more realistic time line.
So if I found so many problems, why did I give the novel 4 stars? Because you can't expect perfection from a 77 page, $0.99 book. This book was still heartwarming and I loved the characters.
