This is such a cute story. Leo, 25, is absolutely wonderful and patient and younger. He's liked the heroine, Carla since he was 7. Its just so perfect. Carla, 35, is less likable since she seemed too cowardly to make their relationship work. Supposedly she had good reason in thinking that they were too different, but if I was in her place, I wouldn't be thinking that way at all.

I wish there was more family interactions and acceptance, but the father walking in on them during their passionate kis

I didn't expect much from a book that cost me $0.99 at Borders; it was on the clearance rack. I was correct in my skepticism. Nothing Personal contained a rather tepid romance with multiple editing errors, which I'm surprised at since I've read other titles from Cerridwen Press that don't contain such mundane errors. Plus, they've often been better stories. Maybe I just got a bad printing or noticed glaring errors that other readers glossed over.

The setting wasn't really important, and to be hon

Shelves: contemporary
This would have been a solid 3 star "I liked it" read if the h, Carla, hadn't gotten on my nerves so much. She's insanely insecure and headtrippy, and when a LOT of the story is spent in the characters' heads, analyzing and ruminating and obsessing over everything, insecure and headtrippy is NOT a good thing. There was way too much time spent hearing what they each thought and not enough time showing their interactions and doings. Even the older woman-younger man trope (a favorite of mine) and t ...more

I loved it!
I didn't know why I bother to pick it up.
But then I got curious merely because the hero name was Leo (one of my favorite hero name and I love Leo Hathaway sooooo much (from Hathaway Series - Lisa Kleypas). :))

Anyway, I really don't mind having a younger man, since I experienced it before. But especially after reading Suddenly You by Lisa Kleypas, I didn't mind 5 years also.
But 10 years???
I doubted it. At least until I finished reading this one. And I love Leo even more. He's so a
