OK. So I've read this book twice now because I was curious about my own opinion of the work after some time has passed. I still think Melissa Brayden has talent with writing and I enjoy most of her books but she does the same thing over and over again with artificial trauma at the 3/4 mark, and dialogue that has everyone in the book sounding like the same character.

The couples always get back together, but what about a imaginary second book? Do they split up again later because one of them drank all of the milk one night?
3 stars from me for the first half of the story
