In all honesty, I seriously think that you should get this book published... I read this all in one go, I couldn't stop... The plot is amazing, and I love the way that we got to hear the thoughts of all of the main characters and see different situations through their eyes. I thought it was awesome the way that every single character had there own individual problems and that it wasen't the typical predictable romance story and the way all the characters influenced each other... loved it :D

I thoroughly enjoyed this story! Of course the Brett/Ella relationship was my favorite, but I liked how you did so much with the other relationships as well. I loved (and hated) how you integrated the new story lines at all the precise moments the reader wanted more of the characters he/she'd just been reading about. I would LOVE for you to make a sequel of the "college years"! Thanks for keeping me so entertained. I would read it until 3:00am then have to get up for work at 6:00!

This has been one of my favorite stories to read. I love the long chapters and the detail to attention in each one. The characters are so well developed that you feel as if you personally know them. And like jeniesmith said you left it so very open. I would love to see more about the different couples and their other friends just to see where life has taken them beyond college. There are so many stories that you could spin off of this one and I would read every one of them. Now that I have finished reading it, I miss it already.

Wow. This is probably my favorite out of all of your stories. I fell in love with all of these characters, especially Brett and Ella. I really hope that you do continue with these characters. You are a fantastic writer and I will definitly continue to read your stories. Thanks for an amazing story.

I don't know who was giving you junk about your writing but COME ON! You are so dang talented and I have loved reading this story. I love the chapters... so don't listen to them... haha!
The ending was left open and I do hope that you continue on with it at some point. I know things get hectic though, but I feel so attached to these characters- which is a total compliment to you as an author because your characters are written so very well and are completely believable.
Thanks for another great story! Can't wait to see what is in store for us next!

Ahh this is... really good. I guess my only complaint about the long chapters (since other people were complaining) is that the titles of the chapters didn't really make sense to me, just because so much happened in a chapter and I kind of felt like sometimes the titles weren't really applicable to the entire chapters. But other than that, loved the long chapters, loved how you got us interested in everyone's life and not just Ella and Brett (though I absolute adore them too), and it was nice how usually, when other people try to do that, I get bored and I want to skip through the other stuff, but here I really didn't. I was genuinely interested and cared about what happened to everyone else as well. But yeah I guess that in the end of it all, Ella & Brett are still my absolute favorite. :) I think the ending was a little rushed and I guessed summarized, just because it seemed like you skipped over so much and like the transition from Brett breaking up with her because of all his insecurities about losing her and Ella going off and doing so many great things without her to him realizing how stupid he was being about it all. I guess it would have been nice if you could have shown that more, and also showed him telling Ella about all that, because to me, it seemed like the biggest problem that Brett and Ella were having was just their unvoiced insecurities about one another.
Other than that, love this story. Took me 2 days to complete it but it was totally worth it - thank you for writing something like this. :) Were there supposed to be character pictures in your profile? Anyways, I don't really have much else to say. I really like the love that this fic just kind of... radiates. I didn't really understand entirely what went on with Lyla, and I guess I feel like that and her healing was kind of skipped over too... um, love Trevor and Joy. Trever definitely matured times a million throughout the course of this fic. Monty's transition from being completely enamored with Ella to not liking her at all was a little abrupt. The whole Corey/Kyle thing seemed kind of random, but I guess high school is just random in general. And I find it interesting that Ella never really confronted Brett about seeing Cassidy kissing him at the end of that football game.
Haha. The whole time Ella's college was still up in the air, I kept thinking Ivy league... UPenn, since Brett is going to Penn State. :P Whatever works though. Notre Dame is an amazing school too, and it does kind of make sense that she would go where her brother is going, especially graduating a year early and all of that.
Good job. Please keep writing more stories - I look forward to reading them. :)

Wow... Okay so I stayed up entirely too long last night catching up on this one and I am completely hooked. I love your other stuff and can't believe that I missed this gem of a story. Great writing, great plot and development of the plot, wonderfully believable characters and so much more! I feel so broken hearted for Ella right now. I hope that I am going to click chapter 10 and find that he is pushing the scuzz away! Dang it! Okay... gotta go read some more! Superior job!
