Well the first book in this series didn't work for me for several reasons so I was a bit wary going into this one, but my fears were unfounded because I ended up loving this one, even staying up late to finish it.
In the last book we were introduced to Shane and Izzy's relationship and also her desire to end it. Well in this book she is still trying to end it but to no avail, because she loves him and because Shane won't take no for an answer.
The book and the journey to being happy wasn't a simple one here, Shane loves Izzy and she loves him but things aren't that simple because there are issues at play, hidden truths. Shane is the guy always up for a good time, making people laugh and Izzy loves doing that and keeping him happy but she also likes quiet, being alone and because of her diagnosis needs it.
When Izzy tells Shane the truth he feels hurt because of her deception and it is also a lot to process because since he was a little boy it became his identity to make things better with his humour but he can't do that now. In this book I really didn't know how these two would work things out but they did, with great difficulty and love and in this process made this book a good read.
