This book was soooo good I had a hard time putting it down even when I had a mountain of work waiting to get done.
The characters were so amazing it was hard to even try to dislike them when they did something wrong.
Daisy was so funny and charming it surprised me that I could actually relate to her on several occasions, even though I'm mostly nothing like her.
I was so expecting Alex to be the stereotypical brooding hero but the way he was written made him fresh and different from anything you might expect from him. It was nice that even though he thought so little of his ability to love he actually was, from the start, one of the most giving and compassionate characters in the book. It was just so nice to not be stuck with this sulky, alpha male wannabe. Nope, he was just the right amount of troubled without becoming a pain in the butt.
And the rest of the characters... well they were all just beautiful and amazing individuals with their own stories and issues.
I almost forgot! The animals in this book are just as amazing as the characters. I loved Tater so much I just wanted to reach in and be able to pat and play with him.
I was a little disappointed by the ending. Not that it wasn't a good ending but it felt so rushed and suddenly the writing quality seemed to take a dive. It felt like the author had run out of time or got bored of her own story (although I don't see how that's possible) and decided to just explain what was going on without really showing anything; and the fact that she did it through Heather's POV seemed very lazy to me. It almost made me take off a star from the rating. The author spent so much time describing so many other less relevant scenes and then she just decides to rush the ending? hmm... kinda pissed me off since this book had been an almost perfect read until then. Still, all in all I loved the book so much it's going to my list of favorites.
Definitely worth all those long breaks I took that now have me several hours behind on work. *sigh*
