I’m sorry to say that this book had lots of stuff in it that irked the crap out of me. And I hate to do this, especially since it’s a debut novel, but I value honest reviews, and I’d be a total hypocrite if I soft-peddled this one, so, here it goes:
But, gripes notwithstanding, the writing itself wasn’t bad at all. In fact, if Leigh ever gets her own story, I’d 1-click the crap out of it. (She was awesome) And fans of angsty contemporary romance and secret baby drama would probably like this one more than I did.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
It has a faint stench of stigma clinging to it, but I’d say it doesn’t need rehab yet. I’ve definitely read worse.
