I loved the format of this book! You meet the two main characters, Dexter & Emma, right after their college graduation. Emma has had a crush on Dexter for quite some time and then he finally notices her as well. . .and then the next chapter arrives and it’s a year later. Every chapter is exactly a year later, and it’s fascinating because you get to see “the rest of the story” as you follow Dexter and Emma for nearly 20 years.
That said, I would be careful before recommending this book. There is a lot of swearing (though some of the swear words are British swear words and those always go right over my head). And there is a lot of talking ABOUT sex but no real sex scenes. That’s a fast way to realize that the author is male!
The ending was unexpected and I cried and cried. I had a crying-headache-hangover all day, but this book was worth it!
