This book was well written with characters that are believable and realistic. Every page brings a little more suspense mixed with romance. You become so interested in what is going to happen next that you totally lose track of time and soon the book is finished. It leaves you wanting more. What happened to Cindy and Warren? Were they destined to love from afar? I thought the book was a very good read but it has to have a sequel. Warren was destined to go to Italy and in his language class, he meets beautiful Cindy. Cindy just happens to be married. But,does her husband have ties with the Homeland Security bad guys? The traitors? Warren is single, his wife having died in an automobile accident.Her death ended up sending him back to Italy. Little did Warren know that meeting Cindy would send them on an adventure that beats all adventures. Staying alive was a big part of that adventure. Grab a copy of THE WILLING by Gary Smith and go on one topsy turvy adventure. See if you can guess what will happen as the page turns.The ending will surprise you. Try to guess what happens.
