Publisher's Summary

Travis Parker has everything a man could want: a good job, loyal friends, even a waterfront home in small-town North Carolina. In full pursuit of the good life, including boating, swimming, and regular barbecues with his good-natured buddies, he holds the vague conviction that a serious relationship with a woman would only cramp his style. That is, until Gabby Holland moves in next door.

Despite his attempts to be neighborly, the appealing redhead seems to have a chip on her shoulder about him...and the presence of her longtime boyfriend doesn't help. Despite himself, Travis can't stop trying to ingratiate himself with his new neighbor, and his persistent efforts lead them both to the doorstep of a journey that neither could have foreseen.

Spanning the eventful years of young love, marriage, and family, The Choice ultimately confronts us with the most heart-wrenching question of all: how far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?

    "Cut The Music"

    The book was great I got lost a few times with the back and forth but it was easy to catch up. My only issue that dang music throughout the book it was so distracting and bordered on irritating at times. Future summaries should state that there are musical inserts so that the reader can decide in advance if they want to choose a specific book.

    Story
    "An emotional roller coaster"

    All Nicholas Sparks books are good. Some have action, some have the villain Who inevitably gets his due, and some like The Choice take the reader from happy to sad to happy. It's a book filled with smiles and tears and decisions no loving spouse should ever have to make.

    "Skip the Music Please!"
    Any additional comments?

    The random music threw me off. So distracting! The ending was not at all impressive. I like books that have a note of truth and this was just too far fetched for my liking.

    "Slower than Most Sparks but still worth the read"

    Good story kind of slow and lacking the usual suspense or twist in most of his books.

    Performance was good but it had cheesy music to play up romantic moments. Sparks is very descriptive and paints a vivid picture the music was excessive and unnecessary with Sparks.

    Overall not my favorite of his work but still warrants a listen

    "Loved it."

    It started off shaky and I almost turned it off after the 2nd chapter but im so glad i didnt.It turned out to be fantastic. Although, I could see how some people might argue that this book could have ended somewhere around chapter 16. But for me, I was pleasantly surprised about the extended ending. I wasn't quite ready for it to be over :)
