Loved to hate Simon and Janice. This is one of my fav Dyanne Davis books. Look beyond the couples blatant failures and you'll see so much more.

This is not your typical romance. I disliked this couple. Truly hated them and couldn't believe any of the bone-headed decision that they were making. That being said, there is a thin line between love and hate and this one just fell on the hate side. It taught me how wrong things can go in a relationship when the couple refuses to communicate. Reminds me of that famous line from Cool Hand Luke, "What we've got here is a failure to communicate."
It took too long for the plot to develop, the characters were childish and immature, and the obstacles the author creates to distance the characters don't really help since the characters are so far apart anyway. I only managed to finish the book not because it's a great read but because it's so awful I wanted to see how it would end.
