it was ok
bookshelves: romance, fiction
Read in February, 2012

It was a bit dull: there wasn't enough tension to keep me flipping the pages, and I had to skim large portions of e book to be able to finish it. Some points of note:

1. The age difference between the hero and the heroine is disconcerting. She's 18 and he's in his late 20's or 30's. Furthermore, the guy knew her since she was a kid and supposedly stayed in England (instead of following his dreams and going to America) because of her.

2. What's with all the "wee Becca"s? It was annoying and also constantly reminded me of point #1.

3. The fight at the end felt contrived.

4. Why exactly did E fall in love with her? While we are on the subject, how did the hero and the heroine suddenly realize that they are not just good friends but that they love each other?

On the other hand, all the side characters were rather intersting.
