Built to Last is a well written and sweet story of two hearts coming together. Allie Kincaid has written realistic characters without profanity and explicit sexual scenes that are prevalent in so many romance novels today. I really enjoyed this book.
I was offered an ARC by the author for a fair and honest review.
