I give this 2 stars for an interesting premise, but this book loses any further thought. The arranged marriage is an old idea given a new twist here. But the author seems to have no clue why marriage is important. It is held up as some kind of ideal about love, but no thought is given to why a high divorce rate is detrimental to society or even why that should interest the government. Not only is the sociology lacking here, but any character depth is also missing. Our heroine accuses her betrothed of having a drinking problem, yet she gets drunk in nearly every scene and seems to lack any other activity than drinking and sex as an alternative to her work. She also decries his lack of desire for children - yet she never has any notion of what raising children is all about. She hates Van's lack of commitment, yet doing exactly what you want every day seems to be her ideal. The discussion of art was about the only interesting thing in this shallow tale. I kept thinking this book would get better, but should have given myself a break and stopped with the sample chapters.

A first effort by an adolescent writer without much depth, plot, or character development.

I was surprised to enjoy this book. The fact that it was free (which suggests a rather new author) meant that it was a risk, and I really was hesitant to get it. But I did enjoy it, and can't really say if I was more pleased or relieved.

It was predictable, but actually, whether they know it or not, readers actually prefer predictable story lines - they feel cheated if there is too big of a twist at the end. The story was well-paced, well written (I found very few typos even, and I even find those in professionally edited paperbacks by well-known authors) and carried you along in the story with enough interest that I actually ended up finishing the book within 24 hours.

If she were a more established author I would have actually only given her three or four stars. However, low rated new authors are often not given a second look, and she definitely deserves one. The author deserves to be read and deserves to have future books also published and read. There are very few breaking in authors who write with the ability of this one, and if you're interested in this genre I really believe you'll find this to be a very enjoyable book.

Having read the blurb, I knew what I was getting into; but it was free, so why not? Because the characters are all 100% plastic. Even the dog is a dud. Rainy vascillates between being the strong, independent woman and the spineless, immature fool. The only nod toward authenticity is her fondness for sweet tea and partying. Because the constant bickering between virtually everyone in the cast is tedious. There's no respite from the quarreling even during the more romantic moments. If this is chick-lit, this chick's not interested.

I slogged all of the way through it and am not sure why. It might have been in interesting idea but to say it was poorly executed would be an understatement. If you are going to write a book based on the concept of all legal marriages being arranged by the government then wouldn't it make more sense to have the book be about mature adults who are ready to settle down? I have never listened to such a whiny, immature, drunken brat who was less prepared to make a commitment than Rainy, our main character and narrator. She and her childish behavior totally ruined what might have been a good story. Her friends were no better, between casual random hooks ups, near constant drunkeness, and an unplanned pregnancy that is treated as---well, it really isn't treated as anything other then something that may make someone look fat in the wedding pictures.

I managed to skim through to the end---enduring poor editing and obvious inconsistancies along the way---in the hopes that there would be some unexpected twist to save the story. There wasn't.

Where do I begin? A quick overview. Basically, the USA is sick of divorces. The government was embarrassed so if you want to get married you need to fill out a questionnaire from the government and they'll pick your match. Rainy, does just that. She's at a point in her life where she's graduated, has a decent job, now she just wants someone to share her time with. Her father is a State Representative so in order to not embarrass him she fills out the questionnaire. Ashely Schroeder, the heir to a major appliance corporation does just the same and is paired with Rainy. You can probably figure out it doesn't go exactly as planned.

I'll try to keep spoilers out of this but it may be difficult. I'd like to warn you that I'm about to throw a little spoiler out. Rainy, accuses Ashley of being an alcoholic and yet, hello? Maybe she should take a good look at herself! She got wasted the first night she met Ashley and his family. Talk about the pot calling the kettle? Also, why would she file an appeal without speaking to Ashley. When she finds out he's already filed for one she goes ballistic. So it's ok for her but not him? Then she proceeds to ignore him and all of his calls and correspondence for two months. Pot and kettle, my friend.

I'm not sure I enjoyed this. I thought it was a bit too drawn out. I thought Rainy was a bit rude in some situations. When her and Ashley met for counseling she was terrible to him. I was cringing. Ok, obviously, their match wasn't perfect but she signed up for it the same as him. It's kind of a 50/50. Yeah his mom was terrible, yeah they didn't exactly have the same views on what a marriage was all about, yeah the government got it wrong but at least Ashley tried to suck it up and tried to be nice to her.
