The setting: Weston, CT
The Hero(s): Will Eaton – lived with an angry and abusive father when he was young, Will took Addie under his wing when she moved to town and they had been best friends ever since.
The heroine: Addie – She was taken away from her abusive parents when she was young but lives with anxiety and PTSD. Will was the only person she could really be herself with.
The Love Story: Will and Addie are best friends who sleep together one night. He leaves to play Hockey overseas and she is angry with him and won’t speak to him. Addie is pregnant and has the baby without telling him. Though neither of them can forget their night together.
This one was good, there were no plot holes, because the secret baby issue was all about miscommunication and not telling the other person how you feel. Addie and Will each had a beautiful night with their best friend an didn’t know how to behave in the morning. They told each other everything as friends but they couldn’t figure out how to communicate after the night their friendship changed. So Addie got angry and when she found out she was pregnant, she got angrier. Then Will just left and things spiraled from there.
However, now that Will is back in town, things start to change. The story is a good one, the people are real people, not billionaires or mafia kingpins. Though Will was a professional Hockey player, it was in the KHL not the NHL and though he had some money, not enough to live on, so he had to get a real job. It is nice to read what you dream of, like having an unlimited supply of money, but sometimes it is also nice to read that real people can find love also.
