I felt bad for Macy. One moment her life is smooth and everything is going well and then BAM, things go to crap in a handbasket. I don't know what I'd do if my husband left me for a younger woman, I'd probably fall into a pit of despair and depression. Losing your marriage is hard but it's even harder when you have kids who get caught in the crossfire.
Draco was interesting to me. It's hard to fix somebody especially when they've been hurt but he manages. He was gentle and understanding and I can't imagine anyone else being with her or noticing that she's worth it.
Overall this is an awesome read and at Top Pick!
