Another great Nicholas Sparks book is "The Choice".
Travis Parker strikes up a friendship with his new neighbor, Gabby Holland. All of his friends are happily married with great kids too. This is what he has wanted too but just hasn't found "The One" yet. He is hoping the friendship will blossom to something more, but their is one problem, she already has a serious boyfriend of several years.
This is also a very touching book with fun and witty times, a great love story with another heart wrenching moment too. Be ready for more tears!! I highly recommend "The Choice" as another good book to read!
