So I’m a bit torn on this book. On one hand it was super sweet and very well written! On the other hand, this is not the sweet fluffy book I thought I was getting!!! (If you can’t tell by my kids book collection, I am not normally a person who reads realistic, hard on life kind-of books…)

This book is about Cadie, a women who after 4 years with her boyfriend is convinced he doesn’t love her anymore. But after numerous mistakes and problems, it still seems like Will isn’t ready to let her go. So his new goal is to woo Cadie McMaffrey back! But when a horrible mistake happens Will’s movie-inspired plan doesn’t seem like it will work after all… Will true love prevail?

This novel started out real cute! It is a very realistic look on what a relationship is really like. With lots of hugs, laughter, fighting and problems. There is a great focus on God throughout the entire book, though Cadie struggles with her parents because they are pastors of a megachurch and she is afraid to tell them things. The romance was very sweet and all the movie references were fantastic! I loved the sweet gestures and the love in the book!

However… This book brings up a lot of adult topics that kids should never read. The couple struggles with temptation multiple times in the book, and at one point gives into it. (Not described or detailed only mentioned afterwards) Then the book just starts dealing with the hardships of consequences. There is mention of fear of getting pregnant, lots of kissing, temptation and such. Mention of guilt and sorrow over what they did and such. The book does very well with covering this topic, and personally I think this would be such a great book for ladies 18 and up! It really makes you think about life.

Overall, even though this book can be hard to read at times I very much suggest it. It is very well done and a great read for adults. (Even though it only got 3 stars, I still think I’m going to keep it!) May you all have a Blessed Day! -The Young Llama Reader.


  • A very good book for ladies 18 and up to read about forgiveness!
  • Sweet, funny and a little heartbreaking!


  • NOT  a kids book…
  • Mention of adult topics…

After four years with her boyfriend, Cadie McCaffrey is thinking of ending things. Convinced Will doesn’t love her in the “forever” way she loves him, Cadie believes it’s time for her to let him go before life passes her by. When a misunderstanding leads to a mistake, leaving her hurt, disappointed, and full of regret, she finally sends him packing.

But for Will, the end of their relationship is only the beginning of his quest to figure out how to be the man Cadie wanted him to be. With the dubious guidance of his former pro-athlete work friends and tactics drawn from Cadie’s favorite romantic comedies, Will attempts to win her back. It’s a foolproof plan. What could possibly go wrong?
