Well, I must say that this is definitely not Ms. Delinsky's best work. However, her stories are always written well enough so that you at least want to finish the novel.

From back cover:

"Rule#1: Never Get Involved

Corinne Fremont has always lived by this rule. Determined not to become like her irresponsible and selfish parents, Corinne has never dropped her guard in her professional or personal life. She's all business-all the time. That is, until she gets an opportunity too enticing to ignore...

Really nice quick light read. Only took 2 days to finish. I enjoyed it. Somewhat predictable but still a good book.
Elly Wendy
Cute. Amusing.
Freda Larimer
Would not recommend this book. Too fluffy.
What a cute light read. This book was a fun read. I was a little worried in the beginning when the well experienced man began to bully the inexperienced female. However he quickly decided that it was not the way to her heart, so he started to treat her with kindness and understanding. I really enjoyed that, and wished that all men had that kind of insight.

OK so it was very realistic, but it was a cute and fun read. Nuff said.
I just wrote a long scathing review and Goodreads ate it. I am so mad at myself for finishing this book and then wasting more time to review it and then losing it. Suffice it to say this book was AWFUL when my rage settles I may come back and update my review.

This book was just OK for me. I listened to it on CD and maybe it was the narrator but I struggled to get through this book which is very uncharacteristic of Barbara Delinsky books.
Mary Newton
Just wanted to get her name on my list because I know I read several of her novels at some point. I guess I tend to read an author compulsively until I hit a disappointer.

The only reason I finished this book is that it was a free audiobook from the library. Would not recommend.
Improbable and quick read. Well done but clearly one of the author's earlier works lacking depth.
It was a good book if you want want that "takes you away" for a bit. Decently sappy :)
Wendy *Sebella Blue* Mitchell
Cute book. This was back when Barbara wrote true romance *sigh* miss that.
Judi Fennell
A great read! It's one of my keepers. Just an all-over, feel-good book!

I was born and raised in suburban Boston. My mother’s death, when I was eight, was the defining event of a childhood that was otherwise ordinary. I took piano lessons and flute lessons. I took ballroom dancing lessons. I went to summer camp through my fifteenth year (in Maine, which explains the setting of so many of my stories), then spent my sixteenth summer learning to type and to drive (two sk...more
