I hate to give a Lauren Dane book 1 star because I usually love her stuff, but could Beth have been anymore pushy and obnoxious? I am all for women being aggressive in relationships, but she was over the top, and at the end after he broke up with her and refused to speak to her, but she kept pushing, and then even after he told her they were broken up again and that she needed to leave him alone and move on, she still kept after him. Do you have any pride?! Let him go, and if he gets his crap together with his family and decides he wants you back, then it's up to him to earn another chance. God I just really couldn't stand her.
