I was really looking forward to the build up between these two characters. Even though we know who the Letter Girl is from previous books, I was interested to read more of the back story of how these two started writing each other, but there wasn’t a whole lot offered. I ended up struggling to get through this book and it upset me that I couldn’t get more into it.
The whole book gives me an overall awkward feeling. Jules is a very insecure woman and I don’t see enough character building to be working on it. There is more negative thoughts than positive so that got pretty repetitive and lost me just a tad. Berk is having all kinds of struggles with his personal relationships: losing his pen pal, dealing with his sisters problems, and struggling with his friendship with Jules possibly developing into something more… I found a lot of the book was scenarios happening to each character and once in a while they ended up together seeing very little into the other because they are both really scared to let anyone in.
Overall it’s still a decent book. There are comical parts, heated moments between the sheets, and great friendships formed with all characters. I still like the series and I’m happy old characters are revisited and we have more anticipation for the remaining side characters that will have books coming up.
