Format: Kindle Edition
I'm a bit confused by the overwhelmingly positive nature of the reviews of this book. It's not badly written, language-wise, and I'm not a big reader of modern romance, so perhaps in this genre it's better than a lot of books, but this seems to have some glaring problems that other people aren't mentioning. Have I misunderstood? Is there something I'm missing?

I think my main problem with this book is the character of David. He just doesn't seem like an appealing person. He's not a realistic character, as far as I can judge, and I feel that there isn't really any depth to his character. I'm not at all sure why Laura likes him so much. It seems like his main attraction is his 'chivalry', which I wouldn't say is particularly attractive in the way he understands it. It seems to me that his expression of chivalry is to abdicate all responsibility, which I don't think is very 'gentlemanly' (and being a 'gentleman' is presented as the highest virtue, though I would be strongly inclined to disagree with this). Under the guise of giving Laura the control over their relationship, David refuses to make any decisions or assume any responsibility other than the provision of flowers (and perhaps an old-fashioned notion of protecting Laura, which in itself isn't necessarily a bad thing). This means that it's Laura who has to make all decisions, without any input from him. There's no mutual discussion or sharing of opinions. No compromising, or working together in partnership. There's certainly no leadership in the relationship from David. Even worse than this is the scene in which David begins to force himself on Laura. It's a horrible scene, in which David appears to have no self control, and is essentially abusive. As far as I can recall this is never addressed - it's just glossed over.

Go ahead, try to pick up this novel and read it slowly. I dare you.

Your priorities are way different than mine if you're able to accomplish that.

From the beginning, I was curious about just what in the WORLD she was thinking. "Is this for REAL?" I wondered, and I kept reading.

Then...well, YES, it WAS for real (I'm trying not to give you any spoilers and, ahem, it's a bit hard). Or was it?

As I've thought about what I would write for this review, I came back to three major things I loved about this book, and why I will probably gift it to friends with e-readers, share it with everyone I can, and pray for the day it's a paper book:

--> It's hooks you in.

You wonder if it's for real, if these characters can be this wacky and weird and, well, why it is you RELATE with them. You turn the page, and before you know it, an hour has passed and your bedtime is long gone and you might as well keep reading.

--> It has a message.

But, and this is the real sell for me, THE MESSAGE IS NOT SHOVED DOWN YOUR THROAT. This is what makes this book rather perfect for certain young ladies in my life. It's good clean romance, with some mystery and thrill thrown in. And the message? Well, maybe you have to figure that out for yourself.

--> It's well-written and well-edited.

This is a deal-breaker for me. I have read a number of self-published novels that do not take the care to focus on writing and, so importantly, editing. Having a good story isn't everything if your reader can't get what you're trying to say and enjoy it for the mistakes sprinkled like prickers throughout the book. Grubb took care to go through a few revisions and what's left is one of the best books I've read this year.

***Don't miss it.*** Not only is it affordably priced for the e-reader in your life, but it's a great story. Seriously.

Where I got the book: purchased on my Kindle.

WARNING. I am Katharine Grubb's critique partner. You are therefore free to disregard the oncoming gush of superlatives, or on the other hand if you know me well enough, you'll realize I'm quite happy to sacrifice a friend on the altar of good writing and that the five stars were EARNED. I've been dying to tell you guys about this one.

Plot: Laura meets David at a party and realizes there is something very different about him. Could be the British accent (despite the fact that he's American) or the formal clothing. Could be his declaration that he's in the marriage market and his very strict guidelines about precisely how he wants the wooing process to go forward. Or is it that handsome, eccentric David puts all the power in the relationship into Laura's hands, gives her flowers, values her opinion and respects her boundaries? As Laura falls deeper in love with David, she realizes that the reasons for his wonderfully old-fashioned behavior may be more complex than she could imagine...

This is likely to be the best antidote to Fifty Shades of Grey that you'll come across for some time. If you think you'll bite your Kindle if you have to encounter one more nasty, abusive, manipulative male lead, then I suggest you sink into this delightful rom-com instead of downloading the next FSOG clone. Falling For Your Madness has some serious things to say about how relationships SHOULD be conducted, with each side respecting and building up the other, but manages never to be preachy. I think it's because David and Laura are both so adorable--and there are so many funny moments--that you get to a point where nothing matters. Even the fact that Grubb built a Hilton in my little Main Street town.
