I really enjoyed this book. It has suspense, romance, and anything else you can imagine. The end of The Guardian is a real cliff hanger. I couldn’t but the book down. I thought that it was absolutely fantastic; I would mainly recommend this book to women, who have already read any of Nicholas Sparks’s books or prefer romance novels, as I do. Sparks is an amazing writer and all of his books are so amazing! I always feel like I am there in the story with the extremely well developed characters. Sooo, if you enjoy feeling involved in the story, Nicholas will put you in the story as you read it!
I have never read a book that actually made me feel almost every emotion. I cried, laughed, and just couldn’t put it down because I had to find out what happened next. I just can’t explain it into words, but I just LOVE this book. I have read it several of Spark’s novels and I believe this is one of the best so far. It surprised me with the added bonus of suspense with his typical romance.
