Six years ago, eighteen year old Camryn "Cam" Henderson fell in love w/ Blaine Andrews. Three months after they had eloped . . . he walked away from her! Blaine made no explanations for his walking away six years ago and now he wants to resume their marriage. He hopes to explain to Cam why he walked away and that she will understand and they can pick up where they left off. Blaine has so much more to offer her now and he wants that HEA that he believes is waiting for them.
I really wanted to love this second chance at love story but there were too many things that didn't work for me. Honestly, I didn't care too much for his explanation of why he left six years before with no explanations. However, since Cam wasn't too disturbed by it and she was overly "melty" w/ him - I went w/ it.
There was an AWFUL lot going on in the story and not enough time devoted to any one aspect. I needed more things to come about in order to be drawn further into the story and yet they weren't. Things seemed to be glossed over in order to tie up loose ends and that bothered me a lot.
It really irked me that Blaine claimed he doesn't play games and then he proceeds to do just that - while realistic still irksome. It also bothered me that Cam waffled so much w/ forgiving Blaine and finding a new reason to push him out of her life. Yes, the next one is kind of like the shoe is now on his foot, but really it was more or less her being overly dramatic. I did like that for the most part Cam seemed to be spot on w/ her reading of people.
The name of the story implies that her whole other issue is really a non-issue but . . . Cam made it a HUGE issue and in fact claimed she couldn't. Perhaps better consideration should be given when coming up w/ a title for a story.
She says she had PID and the doctors claimed it would be difficult to conceive NOT that she was infertile. But there is no explanation for how she even got pelvic inflammatory disease. What also bothered me was Blaine claiming that he cared for Cam - never mind that he knew nothing about her or her whereabouts for 6 years - he didn't even ask those telling questions about PID!
I also wondered if Blaine had OW in the six years he was gone. Apparently Cam didn't have OM, but he thought it was possible that she would be w/ someone. Blaine tells Cam it had only ever been her. What does that mean? NO ONE ever asked if he had slept w/ anyone else and frankly I think he may have. Heck even Cam has thoughts of him just passing through the city and looking up an ex GF. The conversation w/ his sister makes it sound like there were OW for him, at least that is the impression that I get. On another note: seriously the kid's dad wasn't at the hospital? That is awful! Uncle could have watched the other kids and allowed the child's father to be there!!
Felt like both characters flip flopped so much. They were either playing games w/ one another or w/ themselves and eventually I really didn't even care. I just wanted to finish the book before I flung it against the wall for its pure frustration factor.
