He and Carly marry, have the baby and she also goes on to have two more children, sons. Let's break it down for you: Carly is in love with David, an aspiring writer. If you ever wondered what it's like to weave a web of lies, this story is your blueprint. With an ocean separating them, Carly builds a life for herself without David. What I did like about the book was the way it starts and ends-so if you read it-remember it gets better! I softened a little bit towards Carly and Ethan towards the last part of the book, but overall I had a hard This was a tough one for me, I found the trio of main characters Carly, Ethan and David to all be quite selfish and unlikeable. Carly is raped and becomes pregnant and Ethan steps up and decides to marry her and raise the child as his own.
David Montgomery lives in London. This is a unique story with something for everyone. Knowing David would put his aspiring career aside to take care of her and the baby, she chooses to essentially dump him and let him go off to England. They were best buds and as they grew up, David and Ethan were best friends, and David and Carly fell in love. That's when I start finding the book dragging to the bed about the same issue over and over, how Carly would deny her true love over a narcissistic self hate mentality from something her past. I started to disengage from Carly when she found out the terrible treatment he inflicted on Andrea and still chose to stay with the man who she said loved her so much he helped in when she was in trouble.
You root for another ending but you aren't going to get it. It reminded me of a conversation two individuals going through a nasty divorce would be throwing at each other and it was one of the few times I felt sorry for Carly. I cried a river toward the end. What I did like about the book was the way it starts and ends-so if you read it-remember it gets better! Then there were several other twist I did not see coming. As you get further into the book you begin to suspect who is the father, then everything in between is not just filler to the book but is well written, compassionate, and attention-grabbing without being whiny.
And he hated her for it. Drinks a little too much. Good book and I would like to read more by this author. It started off great but the middle was dragging badly. Bockoven has done a wonderful job creating a story that is filled with the common love of family, but filled with surprises that the reader doesn't see coming until the end. Not a bunch of extra details to make it boring.
His father has passed away and the proximity returning home brings leaves him David with no choice but to go with his gut. Ethan, though Carly tried to paint him as a good guy, was in my opinion mentally abusive. The only reason I'm not completely annoyed that I spent my time reading this book is because I was at the beach, and you're supposed to read bad books at the beach. I give this book 5 stars. Instead, he is drawn into a web of secrets that rekindles the fierce need he once felt to protect Carly. A bit unrealistic that a man would agree to take his old girlfriend's daughter to live with him although he was really her father.
Let's break it down for you: Carly is in love with David, an aspiring writer. While I know this story is suppose to be about Carly and David, Andrea won me over. Meanwhile, Ethan becomes the white k If you ever wondered what it's like to weave a web of lies, this story is your blueprint. He drew himself deeper into his cashmere overcoat in an attempt to ward off the late October cold. The story made no sense and wasn't good, the characters were flat and underdeveloped, the whole major plot took place in the last 40 or 50 pages and was rushed through and it was extremely predictable. Carly and Ethan have three children. There is no greater love between two people than one willing to sacrifice for the sake of the other.
The first 100 pages went by like a breeze the next 100 were nearly impossible then the end got really good. Yes some will argue she was very giving for giving up her happiness for David but she also hurt others with her actions which to me made her selfish. They spent countless hours planning their futures together. Ethan is very insecure in his marriage and does not want David anywhere around his family. It is also about a mother's sacrifice at real love to marry someone who does love her, but also is controlling of her, their marriage, which causes her to remain submissive to him fo This was a story about childhood friends, sweethearts, what ifs, secrets, and sacrifice.
It will have you laughing, crying, angry, and believing in second chances. So I give it 3 stars for a few things-dragging middle and the mom Carly was too unreal. With little comprehension of the life-long consequences of her actions, she trades her own future happiness to protect the man she's loved since kindergarten, David Montgomery. When her husband retired from the fire department, she decided to take a break from writing and spend more time together. Carly let Ethan believe that to protect Andrea and David hasn't been around in 16 years. She breaks things off with David when she returns home she don't want him to give up his opportunity because she's pregnant and she goes on to marry her other childhood friend Ethan She's never gotten over David and ethan knows Couldn't put this down. Circumstances occur and David leaves homes to pursue a writing career.
