This is the second time I’ve read this and I enjoyed it just as much this time around. I could be wrong, but I think this is Rachael’s first published book. I think her books just keep getting better and better. I enjoy the dialog and plots of her books. She writes likable characters. I liked our heroine Kennedy, she was a lot of fun. I liked her outlook on life and that she was just a fun person to be around. I also liked Braxton, he was a good leading man. I thought they had good chemistry tog ...more

This is an LDS book about a girl who leaves a broken engagement to take up an ideal job in another state (AZ). She meets someone, but her roomate has already "claimed" him and she still has some things to work through. She does end up getting the guy. I think there was too much emphasis on the main character not wanting to date the guy because of her roomate, but otherwise I thought it was good.

This was just the sort of thing I needed to read today. Yup, I started and finished it today. A sweet romance, some fun humor, the perfect thing to read on the wintery, snowy, blah day I find myself in today.

This was one of the cutest LDS romantic fiction books that I've read in a long time! And this is exactly how I love them to be--not too preachy; fantastic characters; cute, cute romance; and clean.

Kennedy is moving to start a new job in interior design, when her tire needs changing. Braxton stops to help and they meet. He tries to track her down later, but has a tough time, until she turns up in an unexpected place. They quickly become friends and the story takes off. Cute, cute, cute! Loved it!
