I gotta be honest with you guys, this book disappointed me, and yet at the end of this review you’ll see I gave it a 3-star rating. Let me explain. This book had me at blurb. It promised enjoyment and that it seemed to have everything I want in Romance stories. And somehow, it has.

The book has an amazing story idea or plot and great characters but the problem lies on the execution. The characters like I said are great. I even like Milky, our heroine. She’s brave and independent. I like that she’

Read the full review here.

Milky has never had a boyfriend before when she moves to Madrid. Her enticing looks make all the handsome and fit dudes, who set eyes on her for the first time, fall for her. Yet, she chooses her neighbour Luke (who has fallen for her too) to lose her virginity to. Why is she so desperate to lose her virginity?
No Idea!

This book:
1. Has no storyline.
2. Little character development. Most of what is mentioned about the characters is how good looking they are. Little else.

Thank you so much to the author for providing me with a copy of this via Digital Reads Blog Tour in exchange for my honest review.

I was skeptical going into this because of what I had heard from a couple people but I ended up freaking loving this book.

It was a fast paced read that had me hooked from the very beginning. It’s funny, cute, adorable, sexy, heartbreaking and so many other emotions rolled into one.

I had a few niggles but they all boil down to this book was way to short. I wanted more.

I don’t think What Took You So Long? was the book for me. I finished it, and gave it a fair shot, I just think it was a bit too over the top. There were parts I enjoyed and parts I did not.

I’m a really big character development lover. There was some, but I wanted more. I felt like the characters were a bit cookie cutter. One positive here that I did enjoy was Luke and Milky did really seem to love each other.

The plot was over the top and there were moments I was rolling my eyes. I can suspend my

20 year old Milky lives in Madrid. Her parents died when she was little and she grew up with rich foster parents - but she doesn't want to use their money, she wants to make it on her own in the big city - that's why she accepts a job from her neighbor, music manager Luke: she's to manage teenie pop-star Amerie.

Luke! Oy! ☺


He's nine years older than Milky and a total playboy.

We immediately feel/see that Luke really likes Milky - and she likes him too - but she's just too inexperienced
