As you can tell from the summary, there's lot of drama built into the storyline. Rachelle did an excellent job of making me feel as the reader. At times, I loved Lucas then I wanted to punch him in the face. Maryanne, oh Maryanne, she was full of so much guilt that she couldn't even think straight.
When Maryanne and Lucas were together, all was right but when they were fighting or broken up, it was no good. I wanted to scream at them to stop fighting it, they both loved each other and needed to be happy about it.
Immediately after Maryanne's rape, she has to decide whether to keep or abort the baby. It's a decision that may come easily to some but can be gut wrenching to others. I was on the edge of my seat waiting for her to decide.
I feel like the primary conflict in the book was about Maryanne and the baby yet the main focus of the book was Maryanne and Lucus' relationship. The entire story was building up to the paternity of the baby to figure out who had violated Maryanne and in the last few chapters, I feel like it was swept under the rug and only addressed with a couple paragraphs. Still it was a nail-biter that I would recommend for those who can handle the suspense!
I also totally love the title of the book as the meaning comes full circle in the last few chapters.
