2 ½ stars – Contemporary Romance

This is one of those reads that most of my GR friends loved but was a big disappointment for me. The heroine was seriously annoying, the hero didn't really do much for me, and I didn't feel much of a connection between them other than opposites attract sexual chemistry, which even that wasn't very convincing.

Maybe my expectations were too high, but sadly, this didn't work for me. I loved the premise, but it just didn't develop or deliver the way I'd hoped.

GeNette I try to read this book two different times. I don't know what it is but the story was lacking something.

Shawna I was hoping it would be similar to Sarah Mayberry's Her Best Worst Mistake by Sarah Mayberry, which I loved, but it failed in comparison.

Kristen Nice and honest review, Shawna. We all have those books that everyone loves but us. :)

Shawna Thanks, Kristen! Yep, hype happens, LOL!

Anna (Bobs Her Hair) Awwww. Too bad it didn't work out for you. Sometimes, it happens. *pat pat*

Fani *loves angst* Shawna, I had the same feeling about this with you; just can't get what all the hype is and why the hero would work so hard to win that heroine is beyond me *shakes head*

Shawna Thanks, Anna! At least I got it from the library!

LOL, Fani! I agree about the heroine, but the hero wasn't all that appealing to me, either.

Karla Well said Shawna!

Shawna Thanks!

Shawna Thanks, Dorsey!
