So while the concept of the story was pretty interesting, the characters were a bit blah for me. Rose was super whiny and caused me to grate my teeth after a while. Garth had his annoying parts as well, but was nowhere near as annoying as Rose was. The misconceptions that Garth and Rose had about each other got so aggravating at times that I just didn't want to read anymore. I think I would have been able to enjoy the book more without so many damn conflicts. Seriously, it was one right after th...more

This story I am conflicted on. The beginning starts a bit slow and it is draged by that best friend's wife being there. That kind of stalled the story.

This sorry could have been much better with a few tweeks to the plot. The reason Garths a cynic mostly.
Meh it was ok. Not an epic romance but cute.
Would like to see a longer book by this author.
