really liked it

I think I ultimately enjoyed this book so much because I could relate to it.
My best friend growing up was a boy. No one could understand how we could be friends and nothing more. It caused issues in many of our relationships, often times requiring one of us to fade into the background for the other persons happiness.
We, however, remained only friends through the years and are now both happily married to other people.
That doesn't stop me wondering what might have been. This book let me delve into the fantasy a bit, albeit in an over the top romantic way.
I enjoyed the fact that the book focused on these decisions, and sometimes sacrifices, we make in our lives. Tess, struggled with the decision of being a career woman or settling down. It took her a bit too long, in my opinion, to figure out that settling down wasn't the same as settling.

It was a cute story with a sweet love story. I read it in one day.
