To make a long story short, Brody proposed a marriage of convenience with Nick when Brody had 1 more year 'til leaving the military & Nick had 1 more year to graduate from college.
From partners to lovers to falling in love with each other, their relationship kept evolving closer & closer. And Addie was there supporting, chastising and loving them all along their journey.
A surprise ending adds the cherry to the sundae deliciousness of this book!
I had my ups and downs with Brody and was sure how things would turn out but my understanding soon won out and waited. Nick I loved immediately and wanted things to progress quite rapidly with his future and Brody. Addie was such an awesome best friend and to see her stick with Nick was so heartwarming.
I loved this so much and even though Brody pissed me off and I wanted to yell and scream at him, I just kept reading. This author writes with such passion you can feel, speaking true issues and how things affect life outside of books. She’s inspiring.
My partner and I were in a true love relationship for 47 years.
His life ended June 11th (dementia).
His last coherent words (as he was in the solace unit of hospice) I kissed
His lips and told him "I love you" his reply "can I say that out loud".

The story for Brody and Nick is relatively longer and more complex, which I appreciated because I got to see more of their relationship. They go through ups and downs like you would expect any couple to do. My complaint against some romances is that they have a great lack of conflict, or they only have one minor conflict between the partners that is very quickly resolved. So I’m glad that Brody and Nick went through a good number of hardships that are also believable and natural. Their relationship is not too easy but not too challenging either.
Nick and Brody were both developed and 3D characters in that we witness their different sides, dive down some layers to explore their points of deep emotion, and have some backstory. Though it was mostly Brody who wrestles through his issues and insecurities, I enjoyed watching how he overcomes them and matures as a person. It was pleasing, though, that in spite of all the mistakes Brody makes and all the hurt he causes for Addie (his female best friend) and Nick, Nick and Addie still love him unconditionally and see the best in him. Thankfully, Brody does deserve their faith and love because he always tries to do the right thing, even though he messes up a lot.
The romance is of a more three-dimensional and well-developed type too. We got to see what activities they do together, like camping, hiking, and boating, which show us the friendship and companionship side of things, not just the sexual side. Also, I liked how they already established some sort of an emotional bond before the start of the book (though it was mostly through text conversations), and that it took even longer for this bond to deepen into sincere romantic love. I tend to prefer the slow burn kind of romance, after all. Relationships feel stronger and more solid to me too if the partners have known each other for longer and have gone through more difficulties together.
What brought down my rating a bit, was that aside from some typos, there were many instances where a pronoun reference was unclear (not sure if “he” referred to Nick or Brody), or it was uncertain which character spoke a specific line of dialogue. There were some times where transitions aren’t clear either, and I had to reread to figure out where the characters are now located. A greater problem was that characters sometimes change their minds or attitudes too quickly, in my opinion; maybe the emotional transition was too abrupt, or I needed to see more internal (and at times external) conflict first. They wouldn’t give up without a good fight, as they say.
Nevertheless, I really enjoyed reading this book and loved Brody and Nick’s romance! It was very sweet and touching.
