I've got two milestone charts for this one, because the opening credits begin on a static scene. The first chart excludes the opening credits. The second chart includes them. The important difference lies in the First Pinch Point. The second chart has a clear one. The first chart doesn't.
You can't interact with other authors on Facebook very long before you start hobnobbing with people who write romance or some subgenre of it. And you can't dig into the current crop of popular novels without reading stuff that amounts to love stories.
I haven't actually read this book, just milestoned it, but the milestones are clear and bright.
Hook: Grady likes Caroline but is awkward around her.
Inciting Incident: Grady may have a rival in his brother Richard.
Plot Turn 1: Grady has managed to get Caroline on a date.
Pinch 1: Grady's enthusiuasm for Caroline might make waves at home.
Midpoint: Grady and Caroline become a couple.
Pinch Point 2: Caroline can't find her daughter (Maggie), who accidentally ended up with Richard, who turns out to be a jerk.

Yes, I've read the whole dang saga--and milestoned it, too. It's a painful reread (mainly because there's nothing much for my brain to do as I revisit every told detail of Bella's passion for Edward and confusion over Jacob), but it's well-structured.
