The basic story: Freya needs to get laid. And don’t we all? Her work is suffering, and she’s doing the graphic design for a sex toy company, or something, I would look to make sure, because it might have been a store, but it hardly seems important. So anyway, even though she’s apparently gorgeous and could date anyone (good for her! vomit.), she decides to try her hand at writing an incredibly cheesy ad on an online site soliciting dates to get her mojo back. Of course, this is a really sound plan.
Anyway, her upstairs neighbor, Greg Cavanaugh, who is hot, also likes her. But Freya hates lawyers because she blames a lawyer for deliberately bankrupting her father. (As a side note, I always love a guy with the last name Cavanaugh, it just sounds like the perfect mix of intelligence and toughness). It’s the flimsiest of reasons not to like someone, and it’s pretty silly throughout the book, but still, I was willing to just go with it. Once these two get together, the book gets better, but the relationship between them seems incredibly forced. Greg seems very obsessed with Freya without any apparent reason besides the fact that she’s willowy and gorgeous.
The story reaches its climax when Freya actually gets a successful hit from her ad, and dates a guy she genuinely likes. So then she has to decide between Greg and this other dude. Who will she choose? Definitely a nail biter. I’m just kidding, it’s obviously Greg.
So, listen, I wouldn’t put this book in a top 10 list, but there were moments of really good dialogue and sincere spirit, so I wouldn’t count this author out.
You know how you're looking for a story that's sweet, funny, and hot? Well that's just what I needed today and that's what I got from this book. I love Freya and Greg. She's this free spirit whose let her responsibilities take over and she's lost her inner fire. I didn't like Freya's deep rooted fear/hatred of lawyers but could understand the circumstances behind her feelings. Greg. There isn't much about him that I didn't like. Freya might be named after a goddess and look like it, but Greg was no less than a king among men. I mean this is a guy who fell in love with a woman and persevered patiently and honorably. How can you not love a guy like that?
I also enjoyed Anna's side story even if I didn't enjoy Anna's actions in the book. I understand her fear of disappointing Freya and I've too have made poor choices when I was afraid of disappointing someone close to me, but it still felt silly. Max on the other hand can cook for me anytime!
It seems like I started and finished this book in no time and was left wanting more. Thankfully there are many more books in the series and so it looks like I'll be busy reading for quite some time!
Normally a parallel romance wouldn't work that well as it dilutes the main story line, but in this case, the secondary romance managed to fill out the main one due to close physical proximity (Greg's upstairs of Freya, while Max is downtsairs, in a pretty unique San Francisco Victorian architecture where three doors leads to three separate floors) and sibling relationships. Anna later gets her own novella when she tried to woo Max back. The antics the conspiring duo used to get rid of suitors for Freya are sitcom worthy. Fun read overall
