These two have the back and forth thing down to an art. They want to let each other in, but are too scared are what could go wrong afterwards to really open up. Once they did though it was nice to see them both so happy.
I read this as a standalone and it was just ok that way. The other characters and their stories seemed to be too ingrained in this story for me to really feel like I understood more than a little bit of what was going on when it came to their parts in the story. There was some explination about them but just not enough and because it was so interconnected to C.J. and Erins story it made me feel like there was just too much I didn't understand.
