It was a rainy weekend here on the coast of NC and my kids were at their grandparents, that meant hours of uninterrupted reading time, yay! I spent my time curled up in my nice reading chair with my quilt, Diet Dr. Pepper and my trusty Kindle with Aefle and Gisela ready to go. I was transported north of NC to a tiny town on the Virginia shore and to Baltimore to an esteemed college campus. And I met two characters who would become important to me for the next few hours and who stuck in my mind for the next few days, Thomas (Timid Tommy) and DeeDee who seemed much larger than life (see the guest blog by Libby before this post to see DeeDee in action). I laughed during this book, I felt for Thomas and the way he was bullied. At times I wanted to tell him to man up. At times I wanted to tell DeeDee to calm down, but the whole time I felt myself relate to both characters.
Though it was somewhat painful to watch their relationship grow in fits and starts, it was amusing at times. Thomas was truly locked in his world of academia and seemed oblivious. I know people like this so I understand there are truly people like this out in the world. DeeDee however would not cut him any slack at times, and I understand, I'm sure it was frustrating feeling like he was talking down to her. But ultimately they both start to learn from each other and the "a-ha" moments are beautiful. Ms.Read more ›

I gave up trying to finish this book. Who wants to read a romance novel with a male lead named "timid Tommy"? I got tired of waiting for him to grow a pair.Published on July 5, 2012 by 2againandlovinit
This book was light hearted entertainment - it made me laugh and I enjoyed the story. It had enough depth to both the characters and the story to keep me engaged. Read morePublished on March 4, 2012 by Lillith
