First of all, the book opened in ways that immediately put me off of the characters. Drunken sex. Man bashing. And being told over and over and over that they were mature grown ups now.
Oh yeah, I realize drunken sex is a convenient way to start a book, but, it's cliché. And very immature and irresponsible of the supposedly mature and responsible characters.
And then, we get to see her and her best friend go on a man-bashing rampage. I kept waiting for that to fit into the story, but it never did. All it accomplished was reinforcing her already floundering likability. She thought of her ex as a "horrible idiot" for such petty reasons, and made her look incredibly selfish and judgmental. The guy wasn't horrible, they were simply different people.
We were reminded multiple times that the characters were mature grownups, in grownup jobs. Well, they both acted quite immature--over and over again. And them coming out and saying they were mature sounded like something a teenager would say when they wanted to be taken seriously by their parents. (Actually, I don't recall the MMC saying he was mature. He already knew he didn't have the confidence and skill to do his big boy job. It was mostly Mandy, the person four years younger than him, who kept insisting she was mature. And I recall her telling Kain to grow up, which made me roll my eyes.)
So, the ex boyfriend really had nothing to do with the story other than to help me not really like the FMC, but also, each MC had a best friend that they spoke with. Yeah, those best friends had nothing to do with anything either. They could be removed from the story, and the story would flow so, so, so much smoother. All they accomplished was an interruption to the flow of the story, because we had to stop and read the conversation between them that was nothing more than a repeat of what we already read. There was an incredible amount of repetitiveness in this story. So much, that it was frustrating to read. The pacing was quite slow, and sometime I felt like it would never end.
So, in summary, I could see how some might enjoy this story. I mean, when you look at just the bare bones of the story, it's good. Some folks might not be annoyed by the characterizations that bother me, and if that's you, then by all means, go for it. Just be prepared for repetitiveness and a slow pace.
I voluntarily read an arc of this book for a fair and honest review. First off, thank you, thank you, thank you....what for you ask? A mature heroine, not some prepubescent, fragile, post high nymph. I, for one, am losing interest in 18 to 24 year old child women. But here comes the predictability. Mandy is attending a convention where she hopes to find a new job. When she hands her resume in to the man covering, what she hopes to be her future employment opportunity table at the convention, he tells her her resume is exactly what his company is looking for and he will make sure his CEO gets it. The next morning, Mandy wakes up after an almost black out drunk night, not realizing the right side of her bed is occupied by her one night stand. When Kain wakes up he can’t remember the name of the woman who occupied the
left side of the bed. While neither really want to say goodbye, Kain gets an urgent, business related call and has to leave. I haven’t gotten that far into the book yet but I’m guessing Kain will soon be receiving Mandy’s resume. Lucky guess? Probably not, just sadly predictable. Been there, read that about 100 times. When they got to her condo they exchanged drunken secrets...some secrets about his company Kain wanted no one to know. A now sober Mandy was starting to remember some of them. A slowly recovering Kain is beginning to remember some of what he divulged to Mandy and is somewhat worried about his loose lips. He’s desperately trying to remember whether or not he told his deepest darkest secret...the one about his brother. Mandy is offered the marketing job at guess what company? Ding ding ding! Looks like Kain and Mandy will be seeing each other again. Kain also s to be suffering from Peter Pan syndrome..he comes off sometimes as a man/boy. Aside from being predictable my only criticism would be the unnecessary flashbacks...it was only a 24 hour period but the time jumping is confusing. It’s a good read but I probably would not read it again.
