Misinformation about reproductive issues is one of my biggest romance pet peeves, so I was surprised not to hate this book. Don’t get me wrong, there is a lot of... serious implausibility, to say the least, and I can see how it could seem like a slap in the face to any woman who’s actually undergone IVF. But it wasn’t quite as totally off base as I was expecting, and I did feel that Mallery got some of emotional truths about the situation right. (Especially Pia’s guilt about an event from her past; it might seem ridiculous to anyone who hasn’t been there, but it’s spot on.)

I liked how Mallery turned the fairy-tale elements of the plot around at the end, for a far more meaningful theme. And though overall I didn’t find it very romantic, it was just a good story and kept my interest.
