I really enjoy this author and her writing style and her sense of humor. I really enjoyed this story.The characters were great and had a great chemistry. If your looking for a fun read. this book is for you.
I really, really enjoyed this book. I only have one issue with it. For me, this book was more of a contemporary romance than a romantic comedy. Perhaps others found it more humorous than I did. I think I was about 60% into the story before I actually laughed out loud for about 2 minutes over one line. That’s not to say there weren’t funny parts interspersed along the way. There were. Many times there were situations that would qualify as funny, but for me, I found the story to be much more serious. My angst level for the main character, Sophie, was off the charts at times. I felt she was walking such a tightrope in her personal life that I kept waiting for her to fall off it! I kept looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for her and all I was seeing was doom and gloom. It was very unsettling. That being said, I’m not going to say much more about the story. I went in blind with no expectations. I’m so glad I did. This author is rapidly becoming a favorite of mine. This is only my third book by her and I’m so captivated by her storytelling. So far what I’ve read has been different and unique. There’s always much to think about. Her stories are somewhat overwhelming, but in all the good ways. I highly recommend reading this book. I’m anxious to read more from this incredibly talented author!
The book started out cute, with a side of cheese. Then it migrated into sweet with a side of sexiness. But then it whomped me in the feels with a full course of tension, angst, and my tear stained cheeks that hurt from both laughing and crying. It caught me by surprise, but I loved this book. This book and me are friends. Probably best friends.
