So, let's recap...All the times our protagonists interact:
1 In a bar, briefly.
2. In a hospital ER, where she uses him to escape a bad date, and he drives her home.
3. In a tree, where he rescues her from yet another bad date.
4. On a date, where they don't even make it to dinner. Have sex instead.
5. A drunken phone call.
6. A picnic, which they leave early to - you guessed it - have sex.
He knows she has been burned, that she is afraid of trusting, that she doesn't want to fall in love. And yet, after these few encounters, when she runs away because she is spooked by her strong feelings for him (eye roll), he is furious with her for not trusting him. "Haven't I earned your trust by now?"
This may be dramatic, heart-wrenching, emotional - but it's also ridiculous! Of course she doesn't trust him! Trust takes time. It takes time together. It takes seeing each other through the exciting times and the dull. Sure, don't write him off, but don't go all in, either. Of course, I also don't think they should be sleeping together just for the fun of it.
And of course, the next time they meet:
7. He hates her, she cries, he doesn't hate her, they're engaged.
Was the book fairly free of grammatical errors, etc.? Sure. Were there humorous parts? I suppose. I found the repetitively dreary scenes of mother and best friend trying to convince the heroine to try again, well, repetitive and dreary.
I just did not like these characters and I found their relationships and problems very silly. I would have enjoyed this more if we actually had seen a relationship between the couple grow. I don't understand what they saw in each other. Except sex, of course.
At times I seriously wanted to choke Kelsie b/c at some point the fear is just...annoying. But despite that I would take this journey again and again, especially to get a glimpse of Cole's lone dimple!
I gave this book five stars because it kept me laughing and smiling almost the entire book. It's a funny romance, but at the same time serious. I would recommend it to friends and family.
Thank to Lindsey for a great book gonna go check out if she has others!
Well, ok, I have one issue. I cannot, cannot, cannot fathom why the mom and the friend won't leave the main character alone about dating. Hilarious, but painful, and I want to reach out and smack Kelsie for not putting her foot down and saying no. Of course, I want to reach out and smack her mother, as well.
that being said, the fact that I had such an emotional response to the situations is a pretty good sign that I was very invested in the characters. I LOVED Cole.
