    Only the Beginning

    Old demons and an omission of truth are black marks in any relationship, fictional or not. While one can be faced and overcome, the other is harder to move past because trust and honesty are part of any healthy relationship. Craig and Melissa's relationship is conventionally unconventional. Online dating is a modern marvel. The anonymity allows for freedom that even mutual friend set ups did back in the day. There's security in hiding behind an avatar, but there's also room for so many errors. Like omission of truth, whether that be appearance, actual relationship status, age, etc. While I enjoyed the ease between Craig and Melissa, while I smiled at their chemistry and attraction, I struggled with her pretending to be her friend as well as why she met Craig in the first place. I get cold feet while planning a wedding. The task and stress of making sure The Day is perfect is enough to send any bride into a spiral of crazy, but to head into online dating? That really boggled my mind. It was certainly different to read about. Blatant dishonesty is hard for me to accept in a story, even though, in some cases, it's a necessity to endure because of the outcome. That being said, Craig and Melissa's story isn't all sunshine, roses, and Central Park picnics. It has those moments of incredible sweetness, tenderness, and warmth that made me yearn for their combined happiness. But it also moments of turmoil, emotional upheaval, and struggle, that made me frustrated and wanting to yell at them and everyone else. The road to happily ever after isn't easy. The pitfalls encountered can be more damaging than encouraging. There was plenty of smooth traveling and bumps along the way in this story, but the ending made the journey worth experiencing. 3.5* Received from publisher for an honest review
