This one was really sweet. Old fashioned to an extent, with some really cute characters that you can definitely fall in love with. I loved the female MC in this, Tessa was just too wonderful and I think Chad really complemented her well enough. All the other characters added spice to the story, which made for a good, light read!

So, if you are looking for some light romance with some laughs in between, do try this one, who knows you might just love Tessa and Chad the way I did! :)

I read this book about 5 years ago then re read it last year its a lovely story that really had me smiling.Chad thought that Tessa was reckless even though he is falling for her but is hang up on his ex.While Tessa who struggle to support herself her mother and her siblings is sassy.The characters are all likable even though like all characters they have their up and downs.
