This was an indirect follow-up to Dear John, but it didn’t deal much with the characters from that book, and I almost wish it had done so. Rocky was a tormentor of John and yet we don’t get to see much interaction between the two of them, which would have been great to see, as Rocky has reformed and has now become a Christian.
Rocky and Carrie are a bit of opposites attract in this book, but what detracted from their romance was how much financial wealth was mentioned. It was the largest stumbling block for them and kept manufacturing conflicts between them. Carrie’s deception and secrecy didn’t help matters either!
Thankfully, this was a quick read, and I hope the next book is much better!
