My Review

Weakness is Becca and Ethan’s story from his point of view. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this installment from Rachael Brownell. It was a moving story which was touching and heartfelt.

I thank Brownell for this novella. It improved my opinion of Brad. After reading the last book, Unglued, I considered him to be a selfish jerk. Unfortunately, I had to agree with Ethan’s assessment of him.

I really appreciated the evolution of Becca, Ethan, and Brad. They progressed from high school into young adulthood. Their personalities changed as well. The three of them matured.

The best part of Weakness was learning how Becca and Ethan found their strength in each other. He turned out to be the best book boyfriend. Ethan’s handling of the “Brad situation” was priceless.

I was surprised to see how the two men in Becca’s life learned to co-exist. This book was the perfect ending to their story.
