This was a quick read. (I read it in one sitting.) It's very fast-paced and lots of fun! Gabriel and Alice have grown up together, and she worries he still sees a 5-year old girl when he looks at her. As well as she knows him, he's hiding some secrets of his own, and she has to figure out these mysteries before she can convince him they're perfect together. Add in Gabriel tagging along on one of her blind dates, Alice becoming his "volunteer" at a self-defense class to protect him from a room-full of eager college girls, a run-down house in need of repairs, and a protective older brother, and you have a fun and exciting contemporary romance. Although it would benefit from the character development and details a longer novel usually provide, what's here is light and enjoyable. A fun read!
Gabriel is Alice's older brother's best friend and she has known him since she was 5. She cannot get him to see her as anything other than a piggy-tailed child, until she decides to aggressively pursues him. Gabriel has some hidden demon that prevents him from allowing himself to commit to females or to give into his feelings for Alice. Mostly he doesn't want to hurt her, but it is not just emotionally that he is thinking about. When he and Alice start spending too much time together and he becomes overly protective of her, he realizes he has to put a stop to their interaction - only Alice refuses to stop seducing him and he is starting to falter.
This story made me grin with sympathy and embarrassment as Alice's good intentions of winning Gabriel were gently rebuffed by him. She knows he likes her, but is starting to think she will never break through to him. There is a lot of silly talk about the behavior of a 21st century woman and characters almost spitting out whatever is in their mouths in reaction to surprises which could use some revisions. Also, the dating is dragged on a little too long once we know Gabriel is "the one". It becomes tedious to drag through to the predictable ending. I would recommend this, though, as a simple diversion.

The story itself was all over the place but the one detail that stood out was Alice was practically stalking Gabriel. The girl just couldn't take a hint. Over and over and over and over he tried pushing her away. Even if he didn't want to, he still did it. But she refused to budge. Yes, persistence can be beneficial if it's done correctly but Alice was almost in need of psychiatric help. Then after, basically, forcing him to have sex with her (which was obsolete in the book) she would settle for friends with benefits even though she's in love with him? Wtf?
I'm not really sure what the author was thinking when she wrote the book but it could've used a bit more thought. Sorry Miss Quinn.

This book had a good story. There wasn't graphic details and the language was very mild. The history of the couple could have been more detailed.Published 15 months ago by Kindle Customer

Light-hearted, funny, with quirky heroine and "real" guy. Less perfect-more human characters make an entertaining read.Published 19 months ago by Wyvonna Turner

This book started out fairly slow, but halfway through, it got good and I couldn't put it down. It is definitely cheesy romance- so you know what you you're getting.Published on September 13, 2013 by Emily Garcia
