Really sweet story, Derek is such an awesome guy. Two people could not have been more perfect for each other than Derek and Lexi. Lexi really struggled to get over the abuse she suffered at the hands of her adopted father, and Derek struggled with the loss of several loved ones in a short amount of time. This is a very real and emotional book, I enjoyed watching Lexi grow and become a stronger person. One thing that did bother me a little bit is it seemed like Lexi depended too much on Derek, I would have liked to see her become stronger on her own without his help, but I enjoyed the story regardless.
