Synopsis

Belly thought her romance with Conrad was picture-perfect: She was all grown up and dating the boy of her dreams. But things with Conrad were never exactly as she had dreamed (obsessed) about. He keeps getting more distant and distracted, and Belly wishes she could walk away. But when Jeremiah calls her to tell her Conrad has seemingly gone missing, it takes her only seconds to start packing her things. Belly embarks on a journey to find him…no matter how much what she discovers will hurt her.

I actually thought some of the scenes were raw and moving and really enjoyed the love triangle aspect of this book as I finally started to get why exactly Belly had always carried a torch for Conrad even though I hadn't thought that he deserved it previously.
