**Mild Spoiler Alert**

This was a bewitchingly zany read.What does that mean? Well,most of the storyline was reckless or down right bizarre but oddly entertaining.See, Icouldn't wrap my head aroundSunny's (protagonist) position to roommate a complete stranger (Lewis) that broke into her home, regardless of how nice or cute he was. As much as the story explained the dynamics of their background and situation that would seem to make this alright, the red flag was waving frantically in my head ...

I don't like to read romance novels in general but I made an exception and it paid off. Throw away everything you've thought about romance novels because Blue Sky is better.

Sunny is numb after the recent death of her parents. She feels lost and fuzzy- like she is out of focus. Her best friend Meg is a rock and tries to help her keep things together. And then she meets Lewis. At first she feels like a captive- held hostage in her own home and then Sunny's world is turned upside down. Lewis just

This book has rendered me speechless. Such an adorable, lovable story! It truly took me by surprise and right from the beginning I was caught up in the book, unable to put it down, reading late at night not caring that I wasn't getting sleep. And every moment spent away from the book was spent thinking about the story.

The book is beautifully written and pulls you right in. Each character is unique, believable, and easy to connect with. This beautiful story teaches that mistakes are made, and

The biggest lesson for me was to never prejudge someone! Though precaution in real life activity is crucial (I would call the police or beat the crap out of someone if I found them in my home ;)), I loved that 2 people were ale to lean on each other, even in two very different difficult circumstances, to better themselves and each other.

Unique and interesting, this story rotates around the developing relationship between two very damaged individuals. I enjoyed seeing their love and friendship unfold in a realistic fashion--not easy and without explanation, but slowly and in spite of overwhelming obstacles.

It's an easy read. A fraught burgeoning romance.

I found the perspective a little annoying at times. The narrarator telling me how the subjects felt, rather than finding ways to demonstrate it. It's fine if it happens sometimes, but it felt like it happened a lot in this story.

As my good friends know I am not a fast reader. I relish in each word almost painstakingly so. So for me to finish a book in two days says a lot. I love a good love story. Sappy I know. Anyway this was lots of fun to read. Keep em coming Melissa.

I definitely fell in love with this sweet romance and its unexpected origins. Who would've thought you could fall in love with a homeless guy who broke into your basement? I adore Jack and his personality. Love the moral threading through the story of salvation.

Such a fun book! I couldn't put it down. I was interested in the main characters and was eager to see how it was all going to play out. I'll add this one to my "read again" list.
