I really enjoyed Eye of the Tiger. I wasn't sure I was going to as the story started rather slowly. But then I picked up the rhythm and realized that the pacing was part of what made it so good.
I truly understood where Nat was coming from as my mother is very much like hers. If I heard once while I was growing up "What will the neighbors think" I heard it a million times. We lived our life by what the neighbors thought, so I completely understood Natalie's hang ups with her mother. How she looked, how she acted and (most importantly) how she needed to be married. Sigh. A lot of pressure.
I think the best part of the pacing for me was when it was suddenly changed up without warning. For example, the pacing would be . . . . read, read, read, read . . . . . hilarious snark . . . . . . read, read, read, . . . . Wait. What? go back. Re-read. Yup. it really was funny. There were many, many moments in the books of surprising humor. That's what made the pacing of the book so good. It felt slow, but it was done that way for a purpose and it was that purpose that made the funny stuff even more funny because it came a time when it was unexpected.
When I read a book I have to like who the characters are (not just the H/h) but at least most of them. I did like pretty much all of the characters in the book. Even Nat's mother because her intentions really were good - she just went about them wrong.
It was fun watching Nat and Evan get together convincing themselves that they were just doing for 1) Sex; and/or 2) Keep their respective parents off their backs. It was very clever how Melanie Greene let everyone in on the secret that the H/h wanted to be together. She let everyone in on the secret but the H and h. That was the secret. It was fun watching them dance around the issue of the "non-relationship" relationship and keeping it from their respective parents. It was fun watching them allow their parents to manipulate them into the relationship in the first place - all the while congratulating themselves on what a good job they were doing "fooling" them because they weren't actually in a relationship. The only ones they were fooling were themselves and it was fun watching them come to that realization.
Evan and Natalie were fun. Natalie's friends were fun. Evan's large, close family was (mostly) fun as I never did feel that the issue with his sister Chloe was ever fully resolved. In the end, it was fun watching them realize how good they were together and how to make it work.
While I really enjoyed reading the progression of Evan and Natalie's romance, there were parts that seemed to drag on. Like the description of when she went to the synagogue and the description of the relationship between her mother and her ex-stepfather - I didn't think it really added much to the story. I would have liked more of an explanation about the game they kept talking about - tigers and roll of the dice. It really does not explain what the game was and if you read book 3 by itself, you are kind of clueless. (At least I am guessing that it is explained in prior books as I have not read them.)
I did like that there was a steady progression and that there was not a quick change of emotions and the book did a great job of showing this. One thing that I wish for a better resolution - Chloe's nasty comments and her unrepentant attitude. She is a nasty bitch and should have had some backlash from her family for her actions. Really glad that the situation with her ex-boyfriend was explained as it seemed a mystery for most of the book and I was hoping that we would get an explanation.
I loved how they made up at the end and were willing to put their feelings out there even if they were not sure that anything would come from it.
