It might be more of a 3.5, I don't know. I love Sarina Bowen's books. This, for me, was definitely not as good as Goodbye Paradise, but I did enjoy it. There were a few things that brought my rating down. I won't spoiler anything, I just really...it took a turn that was unexpected to me and it kind of pulled me out of the story a bit, maybe for anyone else it wouldn't. It just seemed off to me. Overall though, definitely liked the guys and felt for their situations and while I felt the connection between them, it wasn't as solid as it could have been.
