I quite liked this book!
The relationship between the two main characters, Tess and Barrett, is so special... everyone would want something like this <3
The love between them is almost palpable, and they aren't afraid to show it to each other!
I really appreciated the theme treated in this book: how difficult a marriage can be, the fact that it's not always only sunshine and rainbows. A real marriage is made of difficult times, discussions, it needs a lot of work and patient.
This book shows that also the strongest couple can encounter a difficult time, but that the important thing is to always believe in them and their love.
Two things that left me a little unsure were the repetitiveness of some dialogues, and maybe some reactions of Tess and Bennett (i.e. sudden jealousy: I totally understand that what happened to their friend may have caused it, but considering the strength of their relationship, it seemed a little strange to me).
But in general, it was a really good book! Really fluent style, with a really interesting and appealing main theme!
