Now, for the stuff that didn’t work for me…
Who is that again?
There were SO MANY characters in the book (pretty obvious sequel bait) that I often found myself confused about who was who. I thought maybe I’d stumbled into book 5 in a series or something, but no, this was book 1. I liked all the characters and will most likely read their books, but I had trouble keeping them straight.
Ellie’s reason for putting the brakes on a relationship with Wyatt just struck me as...well, kind of stupid, honestly. I won’t give any plot points away, but if you read the book, you’ll know what I’m talking about when you see it.
And the point of that was?
There was some seemingly unnecessary drama with Ellie’s ex and his new girlfriend. I’m not sure what all that was about since it never really caused too many problems for Wyatt or Ellie. And if there’s one thing I can’t stand in a romance it’s unnecessary drama.
But, all that said and minor irks notwithstanding, I still think this one’s worth a read. For me, the funny and sweet and sexy moments made up for the stuff that wasn’t so great. I’ll definitely be reading more books in the series, and I really like this author’s style.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
No rehab needed. This one’s clean and sober.
