Featured are a family of six girls with caricatures abounding. Everyone is a extreme version -- the tomboy, the damaged wallflower, the uber-business woman, mama bear, et al. Then we have twins marrying twins and one couple having twins. I found the interactions between the sisters to have an artificial feel, which frankly went along with the featured romance.
Adam the architect is one of the most wooden, prissy heroes I have encountered. He's a 37 year old bachelor who has never had a hang nail and admits to matching his shirts to his eye color. He believes all men do this. On meeting Paulina, he thinks her round-faced and plain. Then her refers to her as the girl-next-door type, later sees her as pretty, before she morphs into beautiful. As if the author realized she has made her hero too stiff, she has him falling down into mud puddles on a dates and exploding beer on himself all while wearing a tiny borrowed sweatshirt at a restaurant. I believe this was supposed to be endearing, but it came across as farcical. Add to that the heroine going commando in the borrowed clothes of the restaurant owner's daughter and the "ew factor" went through the roof.
The fact that Adam didn't dump his girlfriend before having sex with Paulina was a deal-breaker. Why ditch one woman until you determine the next one is good in the sack?
For some who refers to herself as a lifelong writer, I was stunned at the multiple paragraphing errors involving dialogue. Middle school students learn than when the speaker changes, you start a new paragraph to avoid confusion.
“Maybe.” She nodded to Steve. “He’s cute. But you never liked blond men.” “Things change. I’ve been trying to tell you that.”
Having Adam sprout athletic ability late in the book does little to convince the reader that he is a match for Paulina or ready to be a step-father. It is hard to imagine muddy cleats or grape jelly in his ivory tower world.
