If this book was solely about Ryan, than I might have really loved it. His storyline, past to present, was heart-wrenching yet the core of his character was beautiful and lovable. You could not help but root for him.I just didn't entirely buy into his relationship with Sara. I wish the author had spent more time and detailed more how they connected and actually fell for each other. I feel like that part was skimmed over. And though I wanted for them to be together and be able to make it work, I wanted it for Ryan's sake more than for them as a pair. There's some heavy material in here and it's not the easiest thing to get through. But, worth putting it on your "to-read" lists.
