He was a bit challenged by several men who he viewed as rivals and one really was. The things that split them apart however haven't been resolved but he's pretty sure she is still attracted to him. Their daughter Dani is also someone he loves but she also needs her father, another thing that he can use to wiggle his way back into Samantha's life. The information abut how ill Dani has been over the years was a surprise but added to the tension of the story.
It was a little bit hard for me to grasp that they had been married all those years but still knew so little about the real inner person. I can see the why of how that happened though.
The words to the song Nick wrote for Samantha were touching.
And I did like the fact that the story was told in both Samantha and Nick's Point of View. It was done in a smooth, way that didn't interrupt flow of the story. So many feelings that had remained hidden. And Nick sure was a problem solver when it came to helping other people.
He knew how to put people and ideas together and he didn't mind helping; he liked it.
When Adam gave Sam the ring, I almost quit reading, but at that point I had invested so much time that I continued. And I'm so happy I did. The revelations in that last chapter had me tearing up and outright crying with enjoyment because of the emotions the characters were revealing about themselves and their feelings for each other, some of which had purposely been hidden for the wrong reasons and had contributed to many of their past problems.
Because of the 2 negatives mentioned at the first of this critique and because I felt cheated for enduring 7/8ths of the book before getting to the fantastic part, and, being a romantic myself, wanting to read more about this really romantic stuff, I only gave it 4 stars. If halves were available, I would have made that 4 ½ Stars. Having said all that, I would highly recommend that you read it. I read it on the Kindle App on my Smartphone.
The main character Sam starts off as an okay character, a little guarded and humorless, and somewhat one dimensional. Toward the end of the book I just felt all she was doing was crying poor me. It's safe to say if she were real we would not be friends.
The husband, who is CLEARLY a Latino man is nothing more than a typical guy...nothing special. I felt forced to swallow the almost constant feed of a cultural reminder that he's Latino and they all have pride for their family....except for his sperm donor to his mother. Ridiculous.
The scenes between these two are all primarily about poorly attempted sexual comments about his wiener, el captain. when they do finally come together it again feels forced, cold and boring. Nothing to light my fire by that's for sure....I'm not even talking sexual fire, more like a general 'aww how sweet is that' type of fire.
The daughter character seems like any other hormonal teen. Again nothing too special to make her her own character. She's just tossed to the side between all the other characters. There is one scene between Dani and her wanna-be boyfriend where they are talking about a homemade video of his recent gig.... the boyfriend says "Bethany uploaded the clip to several video hosting sites late last-night without telling me"...I actually snorted, not because it was funny, but because I have NEVER heard a teenager talk like this, I so badly want the conversation to sound realistic. Very poor choice in dialog in my opinion.
The ending was just a tad to far fetched for my liking...could it happen...maybe but highly unlikely.
I gave this 2 stars because I suppose the situation could happen in some far fetched life, yet hopefully with better dialog and more believable characters.
This book also firmed up the fact that I won't be seeking any other books by this author. I know lots like it and love this author....to each their own I suppose.
