A story about a dating service is nothing new, but Patrice Wilton puts a new spin on this delightful, fun story. She has included a great cast of characters, a fun-loving grandmother, a troubled daughter, an eccentric psychologist, and a very hot construction worker who give the heroine plenty to worry about. I was entertained all they way through.

I wanted to like this book and I enjoyed parts of it. However, I found the female lead character so incredibly unlikable that I didn't care whether she ended up happy or not. She was overly abrasive and often just plain mean to the male lead. All the witchiness just really kept me from rooting for her. I also thought the two extra storylines with the grandmother and daughter really bogged things down. I skipped over most of the grandmother drama and ended up just skimming the 2nd half of the book.

It's been a while since I've read a book in which I find myself so intensely disliking the main character. What an absolute jerk Christine is. Yes, I understand that her ex-husband damaged her emotionally, but honest to goodness, the way she treated Derek was appalling. Sleep with me. Don't talk to me. Sleep with me. Get out of my life. Kiss me. Go away. But don't go with anyone else, either.

I wanted to reach into the book and choke her. I was almost bummed out every time Derek gave her another chance. What kind of love story is that? All she did was play head games and feel sorry for herself.

There was a secondary storyline that dealt with Christine's mother. That wasn't very interesting, and she seemed to jump around quite a bit from ok to heartbroken to ok again pretty quickly. But at least I didn't want to punch her...mostly because she wasn't interesting enough to cause me to make a fist.

The only interesting person was the therapist, even though her character was not deeply developed, since she provided some comic relief.

Could've been a good story, but it wasn't. Nobody wants to read a book in which they want the couple to stay apart.

Patrice Wilton takes you away with her wonderful sense of humor. I had a horrible time when I read this book. I burned dinner, missed an appointment, and ignored my life totally. Because I couldn't put it down.
This is a keeper, thank God I finished it, my DH was ready to leave home! I never liked Contemporary until I read Patrice.

When I decide if I want to give a book a try, I start with the negative reviews. I find they give me more infomation than the glowing 4 and 5 star reviews. I mention this to say that I didn't agree with the reviewer who felt the main character was wishy washy, pushing our hero away and then pulling him back. While I never possessed this level of fear after my own divorce, I can understand how someone would feel that way. Beyond that, I had my own "issues" with this book.

On the plus side, this is a fast read. There aren't a lot of typos or misused words, which is also a plus and tends to result in my refusing to finish a book.

On the negative, I found the book unbelievable beyond belief and that just ruined it for me. A woman who owns a successful hair salon sells it to take over her mother's failing business and then spends money like she grows it on a tree in her yard. Really?

I have a personal problem with what I call "delusional fantasy" in books. I don't care about name dropping, designer brand dropping, and someone pretending to be on the inside of the elite. This woman was a hairdresser. She's a provider of services. That doesn't suddenly put her on the inside track for a high class dating serving. And no one, I don't care how much money they have is going to drop $1,000 for a dating service that has no track record.

On another note, I was so curious about the "exclusive condo complex" on Manalapan, that I took a ride looking for it. I certainly don't remember there being one there. There isn't. There are condos in Lake Worth and Boynton Beach. The only thing on Manalapan are really, really big single family mansions. There's that "delusional fantasy" again.

I feel bad for the harsh review I'm about to write. I wanted to like this book when I started reading it. I don't think the writer is a bad writer per se, especially in the early chapters. The idea was good and the sex and kissing scenes were deliciously spicy. But halfway through I hated the main character so much that it took an act of will for me to finish the book.

Christine is the most unlikeable heroine I've read in a long time. She's rich, childish, snobby, indecisive and judgmental. It was not funny or cute reading about her thinning people from her dating service for being bipolar or being (god forbid) a waitress. She plays golf and ruminates about her life and states she considers herself a failure as a mother (her words) because her daughter chose to quit college and work as a waitress. SHE is a FAILURE because her daughter is a WAITRESS.

Ugh, I just hated her.

Add in her abusive treatment of the hero where she ran so hot and cold (and hot again) she should have removed HERSELF from the dating pool for being bipolar and you have a character that is just... loathsome.

On top of being a complete boor, she has a cast of equally boorish characters. There is the snarky and lazy receptionist Jen. Her flat out RUDE business partner Helga that we are supposed to like because the other characters laugh when she behaves like a total jerk. Then there's the cardboard cutout of a macho hero, Derek who tells his sons he won't date if they don't approve and then dates anyway when the one son makes it clear he isn't ready to see his dad with someone new.
