Travis has the life that any bachelor would surely desire – a good job, amazing friends and a beautiful home with a fabulous boat and other toys. He thinks that’s all he’ll ever need, until he meets his new neighbor Gabby.
Although their first meeting is anything but easy, their friendship quickly grows and Travis finds himself unable to get Gabby off his mind. Gabby, who thinks that her life with her boyfriend is fairly wonderful, finds that she is unable to stop thinking of Travis as well.
Their love grows quickly over the span of one weekend and Gabby finds that she must make a choice between her boyfriend Kevin and their life together or this new love with Travis.
However, that isn’t the main choice that this book refers to… and what seems like a relatively easy love story is anything but.
I chose this book because I couldn’t think of anything better to read and Nicholas Sparks usually writes an okay love story. However, I found this particular love story kind of boring, predictable and with an ending that seemed too neatly wrapped up. I don’t know… there was no “I’m so sleepy but I need to read the next chapter to find out what happens!” It was pretty mediocre for me actually.
In all honesty, although it wasn’t the worst book ever (hello Scarlet Letter) it also wasn’t anything to write home about.
