When I read a review saying that this book was hilarious and the reader had fallen from his couch from all the laugher ... Inevitably, it intrigued and inspired me.

Moreover, the story was promising: a young woman who becomes clumsy and a real walking disaster every times she becomes nervous. And her nerves were instantly in plot whenever the handsome and dark hero were near her. All these elements were perfect to let me hope for some good time.

But then, the bar was set very high by this first review and to be honest, I was really disappointed for not having more fun.

It is a light, entertaining novel but with many clichés and gags easy to anticipate. I also had trouble with Darcy. If her goofy side is charming, her willingness to lose her innocence with the first man who show her interest, much less. After making her mind, her first night is followed by a text explanation, worthy of a biology class, which breaks the romantic mood and starry-eyed atmosphere that Trish Jensen gave to her novel.

In short, no hilarity for me but I was perhaps in a bad mood. By cons, this is a nice easy to read novel which is perfect to bring for the beach this summer...
