This quick, contemporary romance was a pleasant surprise. The plot was unlike anything I've ever read as were the main characters. They were complex and interesting, with a realistic building of trust and love that came across well. I would recommend this book to any lover of romance.

Checked it out for plane reading, but I only started it on the way home. Solid writing and characterization yet again. I really like this author. She makes the emotions and characters feel so real.

The book was just ok. The heroine was too judgmental for me to like her.
I found a gem! A satisfying story all around and not the usual formula..enjoyed this one tremendously.
Setting: Seattle, WA area

Janice Kay Johnson is the author of sixty books for children and adults.
