Levi is such a man's man. He isn't afraid to take charge and do things no matter how mundane and sometimes not in his job description it may be. He is pretty messed up and definitely has some abandonment issues but he doe not at all let them limit his life. He makes lemonade whenever life throws him a lemon. He has sooooo much oozing sex appeal that would make any woman want to purr when he is around.
Faith is able to have a sunny outlook on life no matter what is thrown at her. Fiance who comes out of the closet just before vows, dead mother and all. And when she let's down those walls, oh nellie, boy does she feel. And it is so beautifully emotional.
When there was an emotional scene, ie, the airport scene when Faith breaks down after her almost marriage and a few others after that I cried right next to her. Those scenes are what redeemed the book for me. They were so right in flavor and character and feeling that I sniffed and wiped tears while turning pages. I loved that about the book. Even when Levi finally confronts his past. Man. Just perfect.
The seizure training that was imparted to the reader was unusually great. It is so hard to break the misnomer that items need to be shoved in someones mouth if having a seizure. I love how Kristan Higgins even writes how it is not important to call 911 unless the seizure lasts more than five minutes. It has shocked more than one person when I have instructed them of this.Read more ›
The characters of Faith and Levi could have been something but Higgins never created any kind of "romance" between them. I read past 200 pages and it was still at the point where Faith doesn't know if he (Levi) can even stand her and when it is told from Levi's point of view it's the same story. There was no true-romance between the two. Levi is depicted as a monosyllabic character that communicates mostly through stares and Faith is annoyingly perky and upbeat. Levi actually has more dialogue and shows more empathy for his gay best friend Jeremy who happens to be the man that dumped Faith at the alter.
Overall I would not recommend this book unless you want a story about a family of seemingly "loveable" characters and two protagonist that have a fling on the periphery of the story that somehow turns into a "relationship" with no explanation as to why or whether they could even stand each other and no true interaction between the two. This book was a test of my endurance to get through-I will not be picking up a Higgins book anytime soon.
Faith had her whole life planned next to Jeremy, someone who was kind and awesome and always made her feel special, but it all went south when Jeremy came out on the day of their wedding and basically left her at the altar.
In the years since, distance has given her a little perspective, not that she's ready to forgive the one person who caused all her heartbreak: Levi Cooper, Jeremy's best friend, who interrupted the wedding and sort of gave Jeremy the nudge he needed.
But when a family emergency prompts her to go back home for an extended period of time, there is no way she can avoid Jeremy, or Levi for that matter.
Levi grew up on the wrong side of the tracks of their small town - his father left when he was little, and his mom struggled to make ends-meet. He was more surprised than anyone when Jeremy picked him to be his best friend, but friends they were and have remained ever since.
He didn't mean to hurt Faith, he just wanted to keep his friend from making a mistake. And now he's happy living in town, being the police chief and dealing with all the disasters big and small of his town, even if half the people that now love and respect him don't remember how they thought he was bad news when he was growing up, just because his family wasn't rich.
He never really thought he would have to deal with Faith again - or Princess Super Cute as he and his high school girlfriend used to call her - but suddenly she's everywhere.Read more ›
