I'm not sure how I feel about this book. It was good, I loved the idea for the storyline, but I felt like it wasn't great. The book was a bit long for a story like this and there were too many loose ends. I don't like feeling like I have too many questions at the end of a novel and that a book isn't complete.
I loved all of the characters, each and every one - they were flawed and perfect all at the same time. I especially loved Mouse and would have loved to learn even more about him.
I feel terrible for even bringing this subject up since I clearly knew what the story was about but I don't know that I could just jump into a relationship with a homeless man, I really don't. Maybe if things were more built up in the story I would have had an easier time accepting it? It was too quick for me - Blake and Livia started talking and then bam they were an instant couple. The rest of the book was them facing challenges as a couple and from the summary I thought the book was more about them becoming a couple...
Regardless, the author is very talented and I have read some of her other works and thoroughly enjoyed them. This book was good, in its own way, I just thought it was a little bit too long for my liking.
