5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Clean Romance August 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I LOVED this book. I had such a great time reading it. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this contemporary romance written by a man. The story is told in first person from the hero's point-of-view. The reader gets the chance to hear the male main character's internal dialogue as he struggles, succeeds, fails and recovers.

Grad student Nick is working on his dissertation and after hours of observing couples in romantic situations, watching hundreds of romantic movies, reading dozens of romance books, and studying nearly a thousand brain scans of couples in various stages of love, he is almost done with his research. When a beautiful woman that is not his fiancé shows up at the lab requesting to be hired as his research assistant, Nick is hesitant. He doesn't want anyone potentially tempting him and distracting him from his devoted commitment to his fiancé, Ella.

Nick is a hard worker, a good student, and a great guy. I really liked him. He has a few thoughtless moments of being a jerk, which only made his character more believable to me as he stepped in it a few times trying to make up for those moments. He gets confused when his fiancé becomes overly emotional at times while planning their wedding, but makes a serious effort to keep the peace and show his love for and devotion to Ella.

I loved how the friendship between Nick and Moiré developed. I appreciated how devoted Nick was to his fiancé even though there were a few times I wanted to knock him upside the head. I loved the scene at the Italian restaurant, and the tuxedo shop, and the outdoor mall, and the park, and the cathedral. I laughed whenever male ego reared its head. I wanted hug Nick when he was hurting and frustrated.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, clean romance! February 27, 2013
By Melanie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nick Cairn is working on his doctorate and had three months to finish it. "The stated goal was to understand why supposedly 'perfect love' could go tragically wrong. I wanted to know if there were obvious warning signs on the entrance ramp to the freeway of romance screaming, 'Caution: dead end ahead!' The official literature always gave the usual, unsatisfying answers. I just knew there had to be something more, something deeper." (p. 2)

Moiré De Lanthe shows up in his lab one day and claims to be his new undergraduate assistant. He hasn't had an assistant in 13 months and tries to get rid of her but ends up agreeing to let her help. He's nervous because he's engaged to Ella and feels uneasy that he was so attracted to Moiré.

Ella is beautiful and Nick feels lucky to be engaged to her and is resolved to keep his promise to marry her and stay loyal to her. Ella has a stepmother and stepsister that Nick has never met because she won't allow it to happen. She needs constant reassurances of his love for her and gets him to agree to move the wedding from December to October, which he's not happy about since that's when he's scheduled to defend his dissertation, but agrees because he wants to prove he's committed to her.

As the story goes on, Ella throws up more and more red flags and you wonder why Nick puts up with it. His parents are still married but their marriage is rocky and he's determined that his marriage will be different and he will keep his promise to Ella to marry her.

He enjoys spending time with Moiré but pushes her away because he doesn't want his conflicted feelings to interfere with his commitment to Ella.

I enjoyed reading the male perspective in a romance and liked the conversations on love that Nick had with different characters--his parents, Ella and Moiré. This was a fun, clean read and I recommend giving it a chance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Really Cute Story August 31, 2012
By Dena
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a quick, light read. I really enjoyed the story. It is told from the viewpoint of a man, which I really liked because it isn't very common for a romance novel. Nick, the main character is the perfect guy that any girl would love to have. He is kind, honest, and sincere. He wants to have a fairytale marriage where he and his wife love each other unconditionally for the rest of their lives.

It quickly becomes obvious that Nick's fiancee does not share his dedication and commitment, but Nick is stubborn and refuses to give up on his marriage before it even starts. The plot was predictable, but it contained enough humor and character development to keep me interested. There were a few places where the dialogue got a little long, and I wish there had been something to break it up a bit.

There were quite a few editing errors, and I am a huge stickler on those kinds of things. Typos, words that were left out completely, using a character's name before they are introduced - the kinds of mistakes that should have been fixed. There was a final edit done in between the time I read it and when it was released, so I imagine that most of those have been caught.

Other than my hang up about the typos, I really liked this book. It was a very clean romance, and I love not having to worry about something questionable popping up in a book. I would gladly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys light, clean romance novels.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hate the cover September 12, 2012
By Cindy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I debated between 2 1/2 and 3 stars. Why do I hate the cover? Because I want to have my own mental picture of the hero, not a 'pretty-boy' model who doesn't quite relate.
It's a cute story even though Nick is annoying at times- being committed and loyal are noble virtues but how clueless can you be? It's obvious to everyone (except Nick) that Ella is a brat. In contrast, Moire is almost too conveniently perfect (and the name- is it supposed to be French-inspired or not? 'Moiré' would be more appropriate). Some of the attempts at humor were a bit forced and didn't make much sense since the characters are supposed to be adults (the tuxedo rental store is one, for instance).
It could certainly use a tighter editing job for typos, grammar mistakes, missing words, using a character's name without introduction. All in all, it's a clean romance story and a fast read.
