All things considered this was a pretty cute story. I didn't really see where it was necessary to paint such a sad story for Ty, as his past didn't really have much to do with the story, except explain why he tended to be a little overly emotional for a guy. However it did give some added depth to his character, which was needed. He felt like a flat character in relation to Henry, Woods, Carter and JJ. Even Carrie seemed to have a little more personality. Not something I would reread, but a cute contemporary story nonetheless.
