This was an average ok read for me. I had my doubt if I'd even be able to finish this at the beginning, but I stuck with it & did finish. I admit that the 2nd half of the book worked better for me that the 1st half. I wasn't the greatest fan of the heroine. She got on my nerves for some reason, but then again, most heroines do. (I really wish authors would write strong, likable heroines without making them obnoxious.) Not that this book has a bunch of angst in it, but I have a feeling that those who like books with angst will like this one a lot better than I did. As for me, I feel like I've read this type of hero & heroine so many times in so many contemporary romances, it didn't leave me all that excited. I did appreciate that this read like a standalone, had no cheating, no multi-luv'n, no descriptive smex with OM or OW, and didn't end with a cliffhanger. Personally, yikes I hate sounding like a cheapo here, but I don't really think this book was worth the $4 I paid for it. I would have felt better if it was .99 cents. I don't think there's anything wrong with this author nor her talent. It was the content that didn't really suit my fancy, or like I stated, excite me. I'd be willing to read other stuff of this author in the future if I come across anything of hers that peaks my interest.
