Man, this gave me the feels. I'm surprised by how much I liked this because I sincerely dislike politics and reporters, but by the time I finished, I was already making it my current favorite of the year. I'm an (urban) fantasy girl, but reading this really made me go through the emo-mill. Ethan is a hot journalist with tons of charisma and no morality, so when he decides to make Audrey his next meal ticket to New York, there is nothing to save her.
Audrey was an interesting character as well, a martyr who went from one phase of life to another, trying her best to make the world a little better despite the lack of support from certain corners. It was weird that I enjoyed seeing them interact with the others, because neither really had much feelings or thought for the other and it wasn't until the end of the middle that anything physical or otherwise started to kindle. I think that's what makes this book so interesting for me, because it's about two different people with similar foundations who've gone through equally hard past times, and eventually find their own happily ever after. I liked the writing style. A little slow in some areas (I really just blame it on the small town I wanted to torch to the ground) but I liked that it reflected each person's POV. Entertaining, funny, sad (ugh I cried so much) and just full on surprising for this reader that didn't think she'd like it as much as she does now.
This was an interesting romance. I was worried when I read the description that it would be heavy in politics, and I was glad to find I was wrong. It's interesting when a journalist bent on breaking someone down and destroying them has more respect for the person they're trying to break than that person's own family. I hated half of Audrey's family and the townsfolk even more. I didn't understand why Audrey didn't warn the reporter that everyone was going to be filled with loathing for her though. It would have been better to tell him up front and give him the juicy story he was looking for rather than letting him infer everything for himself and missing details. I spent half the book hating nearly all the characters, but at the same time I questioned how I'd handle the situation if I was in their shoes as well and realized I had no idea. It was humbling in a way, and I think that's what made the book interesting in the end.
