For four years, Grace Sullivan wrote to a Marine she never met, and fell in love. But when his deployment ended, so did the letters. Ever since that day, Grace has been coasting, academically and emotionally. The one thing she’s decided? No way is Noah Jackson — or any man — ever going to break her heart again.
Noah has always known exactly what he wants out of life. Success. Stability. Control. That’s why he joined the Marines and that’s why he’s fighting his way — literally — through college. Now that he’s got the rest of his life on track, he has one last conquest: Grace Sullivan. But since he  was the one who stopped writing, he knows that winning her back will be his biggest battle yet.

Didn't read after I saw it was written in first person. If you don't mind that format you might enjoy this.

Anticlimactic ending

The first half was background and felt like it was leading up to something great and I kept waiting for conflict and angst once they kissed... but the it got boring.

Tried hard to like, but it never happened. Storyline good but it never delivered.

I'm trying really hard to like this story because of the interesting story line about Grace writing letters to Noah for four years while he was in the Marines. It's falling short for me with the talk about college and partying and photography. It's not very interesting or captivating. Noah and Grace are likeable, but this friendship is wearing on my patience.
If you like stories about Marines and underground fighting and college students then this one will work for you. I do not mine photography but for whatever reason the way this is written makes it unappealing. I feel bad but it's not consuming me and I've had to skim through the pages.
Grace's indecisiveness is driving me insane. This is why dating younger girls is a mistake. Grace cannot make reasonable and mature decisions because she is too inexperienced at life.
