I wasn't a huge fan of Beth's in PtL and to be honest, I wasn't all that excited about this book. However, it was fantastic. Beth is a lot more complicated then what we see in PtL. Now I understand a lot of her actions. But Ryan is the character I really loved. Reading his POV was the best part and his struggle to be something other than the school jock was funny and heart wrenching at the same time. Plenty of swoon wrapped up in another great story. Definitely reading the next one.
