I also had BIG problems with Phillip. It's hard not to give spoilers here but will try to keep them few. Phillip is a college student dating a young teen named Bridget. He thinks she's 18 and she was afraid to correct his assumption since she truly loved him. She's had a lot of losses in life and feared losing someone else she loved. Her mother was a devoted single mom but died when Bridget was 14, a year before meeting Phillip. He's very protective of Bridget and you get the feeling he also truly cares for her.
Bridget is an innocent. She's never been with male before and Phillip picks up on that right away. He doesn't force her but takes his time showing her he really cares. After a troublesome night with his dad, Philip convinces Bridget he loves her. They become intimate. She ends up pregnant. This is where 'Philip hate' quickly enters the book.... his treatment of Bridget is cruel. The things he says to her are nothing like the Phillip we saw before. He wants nothing to do with Bridget or his baby.
Now Bridget is all alone. Her dad, who she had to live with the past year since her mother's death, kicks her out too. Her so called best friend turns against her and becomes a bully. Philips friends belittle her too. She literally has no one. Homeless with no where to go, she stops by a diner to order a cup of soup.... she can't afford a bowl. She has just enough money for a cheap motel and her soup. She plans on finding a shelter the next day, but Billy, the diner owner is drawn to her. He see's a strong young teen that needs a break in life.. He feeds her and gives her a job at the diner and a place to live.
Bridget and Billy start an 18 year journey that forms a family, not a traditional family, but a real family none the less. When his daughter is three, Phillip makes a token effort to see her. But it's only token at the best. We don't 'see' him again till toward the end of the book. He's married with two children and says he's feeling guilty for what he did to Bridget and their child. We needed much more than what we got from Philip. Just saying he felt guilty does nothing to redeem him. We don't get to 'see or feel' his guilt nor his remorse. He certainly didn't win me over... in this book or in the sequel. We never 'see' him realizing what he did. Yes, he mentions it, but talk is cheap. We needed to really feel his emotions, his thoughts. He's happily married with children and living a life of luxury. He graduated college and became an attorney....Funny, his specialty was Family Law. I honestly don't know how he lived with himself and we are not allowed to see it, either. That's probably the biggest disappointment with this book.

Two people in love considering the other instead of being honest and true in explaining themselves.
