Secrets abound in this story. I loved how Leila and Jackson accepted the secrets and were willing to wait until they reached the right time to tell. Not all came out when they should. Despite the surprises, the feelings these two shared seemed to conquer all. There are some moments that are quite gritty and heart wrenching, and Leila's ability to let Jackson leave showed the strength of her character. Jackson was a sweetheart, as even when he felt hurt, he tried to do things to make Leila happy. With the humor of the secondary characters, I look forward to reading their stories as well. I highly recommend this book and series, as it unfolds.
