This was a pretty quick read. Although it wanted to be really funny, it came off more as ridiculous in my opinion. I've read other romances where I actually laughed out loud (some books by Sophie Kinsella, for one) but this was not really one of them. However, it was still an enjoyable read--Des was totally HOT and a nice guy without being a wuss or a control freak--best case scenario.
Sadie JUST skirted the edge of being one of those heroines who says, "I don't know why he would like me, I'm such a mess" and you find yourself agreeing with her. She pulled back just enough between the ridiculous acts of craziness that I wasn't totally annoyed with her. Although, strangely, I never really got a sense of what she looked like. Brown hair and eyes, and she denigrated herself at every turn. But others said she was beautiful, even her ex and he was a total narcissist who would probably never be caught dead with anyone rating less than a 9. She said she had worked out like crazy to try to "help her marriage" before the divorce so her body was great, but a few pages later, she'd be saying how she had to stand up straight and suck in her gut when Des was near. She just never came into focus.
There's a bit of sex in the book but none of it is graphic or even detailed. Even so it didn't bother me. I would have liked to have seen more of Sadie and Des as a couple among other people. It seemed like almost every time they were together and happy, it was in private.Read more ›
Bring together a very recently divorced Sadie with her Aunt Dody, brothers Jasper and Fontaine, and Des, a real hunky emergency room doctor in Bell Harbor, Michigan and you have the makings of a good romance story. Add that Sadie brings her 4 and 6 year old children as she escapes into her aunt's dotty attitude and malapropisms and the fact that Fontaine is gay and it begins to look even more interesting. Sadie's whole family seems dedicated to double-entendres, smart remarks and stories of misspent youth, while her daughter Paige's misunderstanding of adult humor leaves you rolling on the floor laughing.
Aunt Dody and Fontaine are dedicated to matchmaking with Sadie and Des. That is greatly complicated by Sadie's emphatic decision to never fall in love or marry again and Des' role as a temporary fill-in for the regular emergency room doctor. Sadie and Fontaine both find Des tremendously attractive. Since Sadie's ex-husband Richard has successfully torn apart Sadie's self esteem, she enters into a friendship with Des afraid of her own shadow. She second-guesses both her own and Des's actions and words, always putting the worst possible spin on them.
This is a well-written light-hearted romp with a truly dysfunctional cast of characters. I loved it!
