The male protagonist, Greg Gunderson, is an emotionally immature man child with stunted emotions. He establishes a relationship with a woman, Sarah Godwin. It takes years, but he decides he is in love with Sarah, wants to marry her, and have children. But does this idiot ever tell Sarah he loves her. Of course not.
Sarah Godwin will go down in my book as the worse world girlfriend. She and Greg are living together and Greg thinks everything is going great. He takes his car in for service and when he gets home that afternoon, Sarah has left, vamoosed, departed taking everything iota of her existence with her. She leaves a note, but we the readers are not privy to it. Turns out she has dropped off the face of the earth but Greg cannot find her.
The ending is trite and while I cannot give it away, the reason Sarah left Greg simply made no sense.
I can neither recommend or condemn this book. But instead of hitting the home run I expect, the author made a double at best.

even though I say that, I don't really like Gregg, this is due to how the author writes him in that he does, says or is a lot of things but the reasoning behind some of them aren't explained. He's a Republican but what made him see the world like that in the first place, and why is he so focused on politics anyway. If you remove that political factor it changes nothing about him, it need more bite to it.
The writing is enjoyable but it makes some leaps in disbelief just to be dramatic to the point where it feels excessive. The usage of Rape as part of many character's backstory is used so much you become numb to it, especially when Gregg's friend reveals the truth about his wife for a reason that is weak and just taints a character rather than complicates them.
The violence was good but the author could have made better use of it, way too much time is spent on Gregg getting beat up and then healed instead of moving the story forward. This is odd since the Authors is very good at mixing the two together as seen WWWM and his other works to restore ones pride, investigate motives, domestic torture if you will, and to unleash emotions. The sex was very boring, there were many instances of it but it lacked detail for my imagination to chew on...Most egregious is that most of the detailed sex scenes are with other people and not Sarah and Gregg, further exacerbated by the fact the foundation of the relationship is glued together by this so called 'Unbelievable' sex I only get a glimpse. Other reviewers have touched on the ending but I won't mention myself.
It seems like this title is for critics of Dan's works in that the main character doesn't like busty women (though apart from Sarah that's who has sex with), Sarah is slim but has a great ass (that's the only description of it, like is it apple shaped, smooth, blemished, is she a PAWG/Wooty, does it shake jiggle when she walks...very little detail of something Gregg apparently loves) The sex has a huge quantity but little quality. To be honest, Aline in WWWM is the perfect answer to every criticism people have of Dan. This Novel fells very forced and it felt like the author was doing everything in his power to get around it, even making Sarah most busty and fuller near then end.
Overall Good read, there were some boring parts and the sex and violence should have been integrated better or that importance should have been minimized. I hope Dan can take these criticisms into WWWM and his other works and apply them. To be honest most of the problems I have are simply things that Dan has done fantastically before but is not doing here. However, my praise for developing the relationship and really making me understand the value of their company is greatly appreciated and something the author should continue to apply going forward.
Keep writing Daniel
