One thing that I can say for sure about M.E Carter as an author, is that she knows how to make her characters feel very real. This book is about a woman with real life troubles, who probably goes through the same routines and day to day struggles that you do. So if you love a strong, relatable character, then this is your book!
The things that Elena and her best friend Callie do and talk about, are things that anyone with kids will be able to relate to. Some of it was really funny! And some if it is actually very powerful! I loved the ending. It wasn't cookie cutter like I expected it to be, and I was actually very pleased with it. And the twist! Oh the twist. It was something I didn't see coming, and more than likely something you've never read in another book before. So be prepared, because M.E Carter loves the shock factor! And this book is definitely something you'll want to discuss and laugh about with your friends.
So why did I rate it three stars? Honestly, the humor in this book just wasn't really for me. There were a couple of moments that I laughed, but the majority of the jokes just didn't hit me. I'm being serious when I say that this may be a "it's not you, it's me" kind of situation. I have a strange sense of humor. I get offended by things very easily, and dry humor just really isn't for me. There were a couple of moments where I just felt an overwhelming amount of cringe factor. And it's quite possibly just because I didn't connect with that style of humor.
So keep in mind that even though this book wasn't for me, it doesn't mean that it won't be for you! I can already tell that I'm going to be in the minority on this one, because the story really was very well written! Plus, Greg is pretty awesome. I could visualize him perfectly, and he's an amazing character. He is the kind of man that every woman is searching for. So get ready to add another man to your book boyfriend list!
ME Carter has stepped out of her comfort zone and created a cast of characters you'll want to visit over and over. Welcome back to the sweet romance side of things, ME!
