Page 57: "But Michelle tuned him out. She was done listening." (A never had a chance to present anything at a meeting with TOV where they constantly attacked him personally (?) and his employer - which is the real target).
Page 57: "He represented everything she detested." (M kissed him at their first meet, considered him a good father, and now she detests him?)
Page 78 - 79: "It's because of you Bella's dead. ... If I hadn't wasted precious minutes listening to you, Bella might've made it to surgery in time." (M rescued the blind B ten years earlier from a testing lab where she worked as a student. B was a hit and run victim since M didn't check the yard before letting B out. A saw the car that crushed B but stopped to get B and M to the vet. M, understandably distraught, irrationally attacks A as the killer.)
Enough about M, let's talk about A. He's an idiot when it comes to M. He's a rational person working at a drug company as the new PR director. He doesn't ask for a tour of the labs and test animals until late into the story. How can a PR person not tour the facilities, it's part of their job to know how the company operates so the facts can be presented.
His next strike: he compares M to his ex, a real piece of work. They are not alike, but this is the excuse he uses to love M. While M has good qualities, I still wouldn't let this emotional nutjob near my children. She's already proven she's extremely irrational and prejudice. Like I said previously, this book read like the headlines and stories on media sources.
Page 149: "But she'd refused to trust him when he asked for time to explain, and that wasn't something he could look past." (A does a good deed, but M won't give him time since she wants it NOW and then won't let him explain when he gives in to her; all in the same conversation. Did I mention emotional and irrational already?)
Page 157: "I can't be with someone who doesn't trust me. It isn't healthy for anyone involved. Constantly questioning your partner's motives destroys a relationship." (A tells M, but what does he do? He admits his love and takes her back.)
I found too much of this story to be unrealistic, characters and behaviors. Just because you believe in something and want to make a difference; irrational, emotional, fanatical behavior are not acceptable means to accomplish goals. You must work with and respect others to come up with workable solutions. A disappointing story from a really interesting writer, but you can't win em all. 2*
Michelle is an animal lover, a vegan, and very active in an animal activist group. Austin is the new marketing director for her sworn enemy, a company who tests on animals. While this story touches on important topics, I felt it moved past that and I learned that as hard as it can be, it is possible to separate a person from an action, or in this case, a business.
On the emotional side, I was actually brought to tears during part of the story. I relished the romantic connection these characters shared. And I adored the way they each interacted with the O'Neal kids. Austin is an amazing dad and those kids are his main concern, as they should be, but when it comes down to it, he's a very good man. Michelle has an invested interest in them as well and is a very spirited woman, one who gets very emotional involved and attached. Although they're both quick to jump to conclusions, I love that they learn--trust is key. The magic of the mistletoe strikes again and leaves the reader with an overall satisfaction.
Content: mild romance (kisses); mild violence involving animals.
