“Probst wrote the nitty gritty of it all; acceptance, forgiveness and the unconditional love despite mistakes.”
~ Under the Covers

Ophelia and Kyle ran off to New York to pursue their dreams, only Ophelia found herself going back home with a broken heart. Years later, Kyle comes back into her life to write his book realizing his mistakes in the process. While Ophelia had moved on, she never really stopped loving him.

When it comes to broken hearts, I tend to be an unforgiving kind of person, so I knew from the start that forgiving this hero was going to be tough. While the heartache he brought was not completely unforgivable, I just had my reservations from the start. Did he earn his forgiveness? Debatable, but I suppose he proved himself worthy for Ophelia.

Ophelia and Kyle are not my favorite couple but I enjoyed their story. They were sweet, funny, and so are the rest of the characters in this book. But what I found is that this book is more than just a second chance at love. Probst wrote the nitty gritty of it all; acceptance, forgiveness and the unconditional love despite the mistakes.

What hit me close to home is Kyle situation with his dad, Patrick, who took a little of the spotlight at some point (IMO). I love that Probst not only touched on his hardships as a recovering alcoholic but how long the process was. Kyle’s hardships and heartaches are not to be missed as well. She described Kyle and Patrick’s past and present so vividly that I felt their pain. I felt Patrick’s shame and I felt his need to make amends.

Don’t get me wrong, this book is neither sad or depressing. Despite the touch of heartaches, this is still a (stand-alone) light contemporary story and perfect for a weekend read.
