I REALLY enjoyed it!!! This is a fantastic new series and I can not WAIT for the next two books! Kylie as a character is a good one, but I did relate more with her two sisters than her (sometimes she acted too girly for me LOL! I'm all about being who God made you to be and not living like a man if He made you a woman, but Kylie had a lot of growing up to do. But I LOVE that she did the growing throughout the story! :D). I really loved this whole concept and the way Mary ties everything together!!!! I think and REALLY hope I know where Bailey's story is going to go and I CAN'T WAIT FOR THAT ONE! But I am also looking forward to Shannon's and Matt's story. We get a glimpse of this in Tried and True! But back to Kylie and Aaron. I was blown away by some changes and I LOVE the messages Mary weaves into the plot as it thickens!!! From the very beginning she had me hooked and laughing as I could just picture Kylie trying to make repairs on her house all by herself. From then on the story flows and rolls in a nice pace that keeps you highly entertained! There are characters I thought would be bad guys that turned out to be not so bad and actually became some of my favorite characters! With shocking twists to drag you in further, to funny scenes that almost make your ribs hurt, to a few too sweet scenes for me, but they are filled with that sticky sweet kind of love. ;) Even if they don't admit it because of their differences for a while. :D Kylie and Aaron are made for each other! From the moment I read this book description I knew I REALLY wanted to read this book and I'm SO glad I did! Fabulous, entertaining read and everything I've come to expect from Mary!
