really liked it

I bought this book because it sounded edgy. The book was well written and the author did a great job with presenting it professionally. I was disappointed that is actually more of a romance than I had planned on. I am not a big romance reader. The formula that is required to make a book a romance is a bit too predictable for me and too perfect.

That is not a knock on the book. That is my reading preferences talking. For peole who love romances I would highly recommend this book.

I really liked Lauren. She seemed real, like a person I would go out to lunch with. I also enjoyed that she was not stunningly beautiful. It was refreshing to see a movie star fall in love with someone who was not a fashion model or have the looks of a pin up girl. Her personality was strong and independent and I liked her realistic way of thinking. I also liked her courage.

I did not care as much for Nic. Although I liked him, I never felt crazy about him. I guess it is because he was a little too perfect to seem real. The whole special needs/makeawish and the sister he feels quilty over was a bit too goody goody for me. But, again, I like a darker story. Reader preference. I am sure that many romance readers will love this about him.

I also wish that it was not so obvious who the stalker was. That was a bit disappointing. But, again, I don't think the gist of this book was to be thought of as a mystery, so I get that.

In short, those readers that love romance novels should grab this one and delve in. They won't be disappointed and, in fact, they will be quite entertained.
