The Fifth Rule, I had personal experiences that i felt i could connect with this book. IT wasn't something I was expecting, which made it much better.

The Fifth Rule, made me think about my own life and choices, it helped me to analyse what I wanted and make a decision.

This book is truly insightful with many life lessons in-tied with one another. Some may not be able relate with the situations in the book, but can be empathetic with the emotion. A great feat of this book.

I think it's one of the best books to read when you feel lost. it won't give you answers, but it will give you hope.

This book had it all, love, suspense, action, drama! The only problem I had was with the plot. I found it moved far too quickly. I was told that if you read "The First Stone" then you have a better understanding of the characters. I didn't do this, but i still had no problem understanding this novel. The ending was my favorite part! :)

Reef has been living in Calgary for the past year, but now he’s back in Halifax for the funeral of Frank Colville, his former mentor. Memories of Frank compete with memories of Leeza and the terrible way their relationship ended. Mindful that the restraining order against him has been renewed by Leeza’s mother, Reef has no intention of staying in Halifax for long.
Leeza, in the meantime, is feeling stifled by her mother’s “concern.” A first-year university student at Dalhousie, she is kicking herself for not attending university out of town.

Despite Reef ’s best efforts to stay away, circumstances quickly unfold to push him and Leeza ever closer to each other. An eager political crusader wants to close Reef ’s former group home, and he will stop at nothing to get media attention, including manipulating news items—Reef is shocked to discover that he has been photographed outside Leeza’s house and is, therefore, in violation of the restraining order. Finding himself at the centre of growing controversy, Reef is pushed to his limits.

Before he leaves town, Reef must face his demons and make some tough choices or else risk losing everything he has ever worked for, including the only girl he has ever loved.
