“The Best of Me will rank with Message in A Bottle and The Notebook, it was THAT good”, says book critic Marie Hashima Lofton. This romantic novel about long lasting love will give hope to the reader.

Because I don't trust myself enough to say no”. This quote from the novel shows the intensity of their love and it shows that sometimes love isn't easy.

The main character had a rough life but in the end he did a lot of good, worth while things, “He had saved Alan's life- but in the end, he'd saved Jared's as well. And for her that meant...everything. 'I gave you the best of me,' he'd told her once, and with every beat of her son's heart, she knew he'd done exactly that”. Even though Dawson had a hard life he never let that stop him from helping and doing good for others. The underdog aspect of the story makes this book very heartwarming. Without a doubt, this heartwarming story will be loved by
