This book was interesting and I can certainly say very different. In this case that was a good thing. I love how Tom refused to give upon his son and didn’t become bitter like his ex wife. He still had hope even after ten years. It was a good plot even with a different type of story I didn’t really care that all of a sudden Tom and Zephanie were in Insta love which I am not really a fan of as I feel that it just lust really. But that is my opinion. I loved the twists and turns of this story. The characters are unique but very good. I recommend this story especially if you want a different read that will keep your interest.
