By the way, am I the only one who thought the "kissing practice" between those two was odd?? 8)
I forgot about Jerry! I liked him too! And gali, you are not the only one that thought the "kissing practice" was odd. I also thought that...not sure why there needs to be practice. I feel once you meet the right person, kissing will come naturally - no need to practice.

I love Jerry! If you like Jerry then you're going to love Anna's Way.
The kissing practice started out when Ruby and Jerry were young. It was for fun when they got older. Jerry did like Ruby more than as a friend, but there's more to this story. I will tell you that Ruby and Jerry's bond continues to grow stronger. He is a integral part to the series.

@gali @hsimone @DFJones I get the kissing practice. While it started as practice young, I'm sure it was really just for fun.

What I refuse to get for poor Jerry is why they would be friends with benefits with so few benefits, especially to be dropped so quick for a game of Tap It. Team Jerry! :lol:

Go Team Jerry! I also liked him. He seemed like an all-around good guy and would have liked to be more than friends with benefits. The way Ruby dropped him so quickly made me like her less.

Absolutely agree with your last point! Being dropped for a game like Tap It doesn't really make much sense. Poor kid. Team Jerry! :D

Yay Team Jerry!
I'm not going to add any spoilers. For those who read Ruby's Choice-in the epilogue, remember what happens at Ditch Lane, not just with Ruby, but Jerry.
Anna's Way -first chapter is back at Ditch Lane, but it's from Anna's POV. I have daily lines on my Facebook DFJones,author for inquiring minds of Team Jerry. :)

I am glad to see other people loved Jerry! He wasn't a major character and I thought I was the only one who liked him. :)

I agree completely. Why would anyone pick Brent when he was so jealous and aggressive? Brent was portrayed in a bad light while Reed was there to rescue her. I was happy with the way the book ended. Since everything that happened was a dream, it enables Brent to be made into a good guy. I actually really like Brent and hope he will be a main character in the next book.

I think it kind of wasn't fair! If Brent was supposedly possessed, then you don't really know much about him. Plus, if spent that much of his life medicated, again, how much do you really know about him? What a way to hog the best men -- that's a terrible thing to say or do, huh?
