    Disappointing

    Vickie Stringer's books The Reason Why and Imagine This which led up to this book were fabulous. I could not stop reading. I was extremely excited to discover that this book would be released only two weeks after I had finished reading the first two books. Unfortunately this book was a big disappointment. I read the first two chapters, and was bored. I skipped ahead a few chapter to see if the book might capture my attention later on, but in the end I just ended up putting the book down.

    Its not must just a maybe

    This book fooled me. It was a dry love story that took to long to delevop. And waithing for months i was not satisfied with the results. Vickie stringer could have done better and even though i manged to read the book it only got good at the middle and the end. Honestly its not worth you money just take it out of the library before you waste your money

    I HATE THE WAY THE BOOK ENDS

    I would not have ever thought that this book would end the way it did. I really hated the way things went down hill for Pam she seemed to have a prefect man at first and in a blink of an eye he was gone on with his life.

    Love This Book...

    This is a must read. I really did enjoy this book, I was under the impression that this was the follow up to imagine this. I'am still waiting on that book if anyone knows if it has came out yet or if you know when it comes out please leave a reveiw. And if you haven't read this book yet, I would say BUY IT. You won't be sorry.
