This is a love triangle and the overview says it is not. Although the author provided an explanation for how Rory treated Cody, her first love in book one, I felt she was rude and disrespectful to him by not responding to his many letters when he clearly was still interested in her. When she started to date Stryder, his best friend, I feel she owed him the curtesy of letting him know instead of blindsiding him by showing up at his grandfather's funeral (his last living relative) with Stryder. I also thought she should have gone to his graduation as a friend as she knew he had no one else. These are just two of the reasons I’m not a fan of hers.
In book one, she was so in love with Cody one day, and then bam, just dismisses him. She pursued Cody over and over and then just dropped him because of his position in the Air Force when she knew going in that he may be stationed away from home. This didn’t seem to bother her though about his best friend Stryder who was also in the Air Force. I have no respect for Rory even though I admired her commitment to her family and her relationship with her mom. I don’t want to give too much away but you will see what I mean if you read this book. This is why I gave it such a low rating. This book is really not about Cody, he doesn't appear too often in the Downside of Love. It's about how Rory and Stryder get together and their journey which is heartfelt on his part, but not enough for me to think of him as a strong leading man. I find Rory very weak. I understand her need to want to help her brother but she had lots of other options should she had wished to stay with Cody. He offered to give up his dream for her and it appeared she let him go because of what was best for him, but she obviously just led him on. Again not a fan of this behavior.
I just wish Stryder would have stood up to his father and moved out on his own. The Air Force provides a salary and housing yet he did neither to make it on his own. I felt Rory was only with Stryder because he was there (physically in the same town) and he needed her. Stryder should have been honest with his best friend from the beginning.
Spoiler alert: I wish I never read the epilogue as I did not like how it ended with Colby meeting a certain someone at a bar. I wished he could just meet someone new rather than be tied to Rory his entire life with the assumption that he was going to get involved with her best friend, Ryan who was not all that impressive. This is what Book 3 is about and I won't be reading it. I loved Cody and feel he deserves so much better than Rory or Ryan.
