When Lisa Burstein announced she was writing a follow-up to Dear Cassie, I knew that I would have to read it. It's funny, before the announcement, I didn't realize how much I missed the characters, Cassie and Ben. But as soon as I knew there was more to their story, I obsessively checked to see when the book would be published. I waited as patiently as I possibly could and thankfully, Lisa posted teasers every once in a while to tide her readers over. The day the e-ARCs came out, nothing else mattered until I knew what had become of Cassie and Ben.

I loved, loved, loved this book. The Possibility of Us was a completely satisfying follow-up to Dear Cassie. Cassie is still stubborn Cassie, and Ben is still hopeful Ben. We get to experience their heartache as they finally realized that "they" can become a "them."

I like how the story was told from both Cassie and Ben's perspectives. I am a huge fan of duel storytelling because we get to know how both characters perceive the same situation. We get to learn a lot more about Ben and his feelings for Cassie and what he thinks about them no longer being together. This story is just as much Ben's as it is Cassie's.

One of my favorite things about The Possibility of Us was the intimacy between Ben and Cassie. Kissing scenes really get readers going and I am a fan of those too, but Lisa Burstein writes some of the best hand holding scenes I've ever read. So much is communicated in this seemingly simple gesture. I will take some hand holding with Ben any day.

With each book, Lisa makes me an even bigger fan of her writing. Like with The Possibility of Us, I will anxiously await her next story and the characters she will introduce to the world.

I liked the book massive amounts of "f" words and all. Cassie and Ben are both too stubborn to get over themselves for pretty much the whole book which takes place over 3 days. This book is very emotional and deals with some very strong issues that a lot of people are more afraid to write about. Some of the "I won't" "I cants" may for some seem as them being whiny or complaining but I think it made the book more real. 18 year olds don't usually haven their life together and constantly argue with themselves and are stubborn and floppy in what they think. I think this aspect made the book seem more real with this and it was a cute quick read. I recommend it :)

This is the first novel I have read by Lisa Burstein and I devoured it. Hearts and flowers are lovely, but sometimes I just cherish a good dose of hurt, angst and the premise of broken being fixed. The Possibility of Us brought me that.

"Maybe we were too broken to put back together. Maybe we'd been too broken to even put together in the first place".

Cassie and Ben have a history. When I started I didn't realise that this was a follow up to Pretty Amy and Dear Cassie. Personally, I don't feel not having read these has affected my enjoyment of this book, so I'd say it could easily be read as a standalone. Told from both their POV and with flashbacks, the jigsaw of their pasts came together enough for me. Both are stubborn, both have their defences up and Cassie is a little whiny and stroppy to start with, but she wasn't unlikeable or unbearable with it. Their young age (18) and lack of life experience led to them parting ways, yet in some respects they have more experience than some much older and when both attend a funeral, feelings are reignited and they begin a journey of realisation.

It didn't hold any huge surprises, but it was an enjoyable read. Cassie uses the f-bomb fairly fragrantly but it was just her and I loved her sparring with Ben's brother Drew. Ben is sweet, he loves her and seems to have grown up during their time apart, but I would have liked a little more fire to him. And underneath the broken is a couple with the capability to bring the best out in each other; the glimpses of their fun sides lifted the story.

It has the angst yet at the same time it's an easy read with moments that will make you smile and has placed Lisa Burstein on my reading radar.

I really enjoyed this book. Light, fun, easy read that I read straight through. If language is an issue for you than you may want to pass on this one. If you can read past the language and see it as a shield the character uses then I recommend you read this one. It's a sweet story about how two somewhat troubled youths learn to deal with an overwhelming love. I would recommend it!

The Possibility of Us is a follow up to Dear Cassie, but even though it is a standalone, I would recommend reading them in order. It's been six months since Cassie left Turning Pines, and about four months since she and Ben parted ways. I'll admit I was happy they didn't stay together, since I was never sold on their relationship, but I was curious to see how they'd be reunited. But they aren't meeting up under happy circumstances. One of their counselors died in a car accident, and they're both heading to her funeral. Ben is more going to see Cassie, but Cassie didn't want to go if Ben would be there. Of course, she has a meddling best friend who gets them both to where they need to be.

I was annoyed with The Possibility of Us at the beginning because of Cassie not wanting to go to the funeral just because Ben might be there. Rawe was a very important part of her healing process, and it was very childish and disrespectful of her to even consider staying away for that reason. Luckily, Cassie does realize that the funeral is somewhere she needs to be, and hopes she can just avoid Ben. Well, that's not going to happen. There is a ton of tension between them, since each blames the other for their break up, and feels hurt by it. Yet, neither is willing to put a voice to those feelings. Laura, though, makes sure that they get some alone time, and it's about darn time!

I'm still not 100% into Cassie and Ben as a couple, but I did warm up to them, since they realize that they don't know each other nearly as well as they thought. They were caught up in raw emotions, and the adventure of running off together, but they simply didn't know the important things.
