Okay...still not quite done but wanted to give an update. This is a story...but it's not really from anyone's POV so it's a bit different than what you might expect. It's almost like a long prologue is maybe a good way to explain it. The lack of dialogue makes it hard to engage in the characters. Everything is about what they do and where they go, and the author mentions that they talk for hours...but I want to know what they talk about! I want banter...I want to feel like I'm falling in love as they do. The story is really a neat idea...a different approach but could be soooo much more! I want to read about the romance...but it's like you have to picture it in your head because it's left unsaid.
UPDATE - It took me until almost 1/2 way through the book before I got to a point where I really wanted to find out what happened between these two. And it took almost until the end before I figured out that the story is being told by the writer of the prologue. It is a sweeping love story and a wonderful look at friendship, love and life. Yes it is really hard to get into but I think because it is written differently than you expect or are used to and again...the lack of dialogue for the firs 30% or so drove me insane.
Bottom line...it is sad but it is a wonderful love story. I didn't give it more stars because the dialogue and the jumpiness I felt at the beginning. And because it was told by the magazine writers POV...it tended to feel a bit detached at times. It took awhile to get settled and understand the way the story was being written. Will I read the sequel? I'm not sure...I'm not sure where the story can go where I'd be okay. SPOILER - I don't want Andy to move on with someone else...it would be a bit of a cheat I guess. I know people have to move on when something like this happens but the selfish part of me wouldn't want that. Plus if Andy found love even close to the level of Bethy...it would somehow diminish this story for me.
This is a book that takes a bit of faith on the readers part...I like my happy endings and this one was bittersweet. But again...if you want a weepy sweeping story...this is right up your alley.
I read a lot of books, especially of the the FSOG and romance genre...I have read reviews that have said "keep the tissues handy", and wondered, afterward, what the reviewer could possible have felt from the book as I was not "invested" in the characters enough to feel that deep emotion. This book sucks you in from the beginning and takes you on a roller coaster ride. I felt deep love and deep heartbreak and cried like a baby.
Very emotional book...I cannot wait for the next one in the trilogy!

This is a story about a quiet, shy woman who meets and falls in love with a rock star. She wastes 15 years of her life on a man who cannot make a real commitment and breaks her heart three different times, one by sneaking off in the middle of the night with another woman. She keeps taking him back because he apologizes and says he truly loves only her. She finally has enough and leaves him for good. She rebuilds her life and meets a wonderful man who loves her and marries her. Together they have a beautiful daughter and a wonderful life together until she learns she has a terminal illness. She then asks this wonderful, supportive man to contact her first love because she wants him there. He does this and the rock star returns. She then divorces her husband and marries this guy because he "finally" is ready to commit. WTF!!!!! I don't like either of these self-centered people. I don't know what the next two books could possibly be about and I don't really care. I won't be reading any more of this series. I would however read this author again.
