What a fecking bore these people are! That was my thought as I waded through this book. Everyone in it is so self-obsessed, from the woman involved in a clingy relationship with her boyfriend to the egotistical Larkin Lorcan. When they despaired of how they couldn’t get settled down by the age of 30, I wondered what century these people were living. Didn’t the notion that women were “on the shelf” if they weren’t married by 20 one that went out of style at the end of the 19th century?

The desperation, the crass behavior, the sheer idiocy of these characters made me grit my teeth. Even when I was two-thirds of the way through it, I felt almost sick at the thought that there was more to read. I was glad to get rid of this book. Thankfully, the rest of Ms. Keyes’s books are head and shoulders above this one.
