The book came across as the characters being miserable constantly. There was no humor or banter like the other books in the series. Even the friendships with the female and male characters which were only featured a couple times in the book were not the fun relationships that appear in the other books. There are usually light hearted fun moments mixed in with the troubles the characters face but that was seriously lacking in this book. Also, their relationship didn't have much of a build up and was just like bam you're supposed to just believe they're in love. Sadie just comes across as a miserable downer. The whole book seemed to be him being patient while forgiving her constantly and Sadie being an insecure annoying mess. I couldn't wait for this book and now I would take a refund if I could. This is my favorite series so this was so disappointing.
