I did actually purchase the book because it was 400 pages and it's nice to have a decent length book to read but it was a bit unnecessary in this case.
The secondary characters really added to the story. Lots of humor. Still worth reading.
Jena is a type A personality, that loves her job as a physical therapist, the order she has in her life, and doesn't like to lose. When she reconnects with Nicholas, it scares her to death because the order & reason that she values most in her life just flies out the window. The feelings that she has for Nicholas are so intense that she worries about losing herself in him and is afraid to trust completely in what they have together. Nicholas is closed off from his feelings because of his upbringing and Jena is bull-headed because her need to control everything that they almost let their love implode because of misunderstandings and miscommunications. In the end, they both come to an understanding that they love each other enough to recognize their shortcomings and want to change so that they can be with and not hurt each other. I LOVED the story, however, I wish there had been a little more insight into their happily ever after.
Haunted by dreams of the escapade, he is stunned to learn Jena was his special someone. Meanwhile, Jena, stung by Nick's poor memory is hesitant to enter an actual relationship with the object of her college crush.
What follows is an unsteady game of Misunderstanding as both Jena and Nick realize they are supremely attracted to each other, while having very little knowledge of the other. Their tentative dating results in a passion-fueled couplehood--complete with jealous bar fights, empty liquor bottles, disapproving parents, scheming friends, and lots and lots of hurt feelings. Pretty much dead-on for a realistic relationship, IMHO.
Told in alternating first-person, this tale gives the reader a window to both Jena and Nick's insecurities and certainties--because when the dust settles they're definitely *almost* sure they really might belong...together.
What I really enjoyed about this novel: the passion between Jena and Nick, the love of their friends, and the steadfast belief that they didn't know what the heck they were getting into.
For all that this is a contemporary romance the heat is tepid. Lots of discussion about sex had or to-be-had but no graphic smexy bits to make your hands steam up the reader screen. And, that's okay too.

I had to push myself to finish reading the book. If you took the sex scenes and alcohol out of the book, it would reduce the book's length by half. Seriously, it was awful. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Nan1022
