"No, you don't. I should have said something about the ex-wife to the new wife. It only makes sense." ( HILARIOUS- I LAUGHED SOO HARD!)
Preston saved the story for me. I really loved him as the hero. Who doesn't love a nerd gone sexy. He really was a good guy and he obviously didn't forget the girl who captured his heart at the young age of 14. I love how he was forgiving. My only issue is that he was a little too impulsive in his approach to Amanda. My guess is that he hasn't had much interaction with her in the last four years and therefore, how does he know he wants a forever with her, when honestly, she was a little odd.
Amanda sort of bugged me in this book as I found her to be annoying. Seriously, other than being a good singer who on occasion got sentimental over her dad, I really did see any redeeming qualities. She was all over the board and I just didn't get what her issues were with Preston after they meet again.
Despite that, I am a huge fan of Dyken and it is fun to see how far she has come in her writing. Other than Preston, the best part of the book was the sneak peak of The Dare. OMG...so cannot wait for that book to come out.
I know the grammar may not be perfect and there are typos, but it didn't really diminish my enjoyment of this book. The plot is not deep or anything, but I didn't care because I just enjoyed the ride. The novel seemed kind of tongue-in-cheek and did not seem to attempt to take itself too seriously. It is a quirky, fun little romance and isn't pretending to be anything else.
All romances seem to require having heroines who assume drama, and while this gets tiresome sometimes, the comedic relief of this one really made me not care. I loved that she was allowed to be flawed and both main characters were allowed to act their age, even though their sense of humor does tend to the sophomoric. I am looking forward to reading more from this author, even if they aren't as funny as this one; I'm glad this was my introduction to her writing.
