I read this book thinking that it was one of those post Bridget Jones-type chick flicks (because of the cover) and boy, was I wrong. This storyline is thin, hardly any plots, and the characters are very lame. The book deals with the Chandler brothers, who had a coin toss to see who would find a wife and have children in order to satisfy their mother's wish for grandchildren. Roman, a foreign correspondent lost the toss and agree to be on a quest to find a wife. All he wanted was to marry her, have kids and then leave the country to continue his job.
This book reminds me of the teenage books I used to read, where all the characters are dashing, irresistible and intelligent and the heroines are equally irresistible, beautiful, wonderful and kind. The author did not let her readers discover the inner personality of her characters but on a numerous occasion, just simply states them, such as the Chandlers men were extremely loyal. Both the main characters, Roman and his high school sweetheart (like the teenage books) did not want each other even though they secretly desire to be one another. And of course, you can very well predict the ending even within the first few pages of the book. In addition, the book also lack humor and this would definitely be harmful to the Kelly Ripa's book club. However, if you want to read an extremely simple book, basic writing and predictable happy ending, then maybe this book is for you. But, bear in mind, this is not a feel-good book or a book that average person can relate to.
