Not every ending is happy.
Gwen Justice is the eldest sister. The mother. The sinner. The one who makes bad relationship decisions. It’s like she’s drawn to making the horrible kind.
Stuck between her present, Jay, and her past, Charlie, Gwen can’t stop lying to herself. Maybe it’s a true inability to commit to a good man who deeply cares for her, or a deep-seated fear she keeps fighting that something will happen to him.
Jay is rough around the edges. Her bad boy. But he’s easier. He never leaves even when Gwen tries. There’s no fear of him getting hurt; not like there is with Charlie. And he truly loves her. Or so Gwen keeps telling herself.
