The real journey was Elena and Allison (or Alson as Lucas called her) not only finding one another, but both overcoming their issues to allow the other to care and accept themselves and their budding relationship. Allison had always been alone and her defenses were high, she possessed a sharp wit and even sharper tongue, but in essense her defense was to run. Elena was her polar opposite, in as such as family, wealth, maturity, yet true be told they both were lost until they found one another.
You will not be disappointed with this book.
Elena, a wealthy powerhouse in the fashion business, is back on the dating scene and so she hires a college student to babysit her son while she’s out on these dates. Young Ms. Allison is beautiful, sweet, and sharply intelligent with an already weary heart from her childhood raised in the foster system.
I really needed a funny book at this time and Popcorn Love was perfect. It had me belly laughing in the beginning and as the two women found each other, had me oohing and ahhing. There was some steam but it was mixed in nicely with affectionate moments. As for 3 year old Lucas, the cuteness factor zoomed into overload as soon as he entered the picture.
This is a happy pill romance with just the tiniest bit of angst. I’m looking forward to reading book 2 (hopefully) and The Art of Us which I also have in my library.
It wasn't the plot-line I found a problem with but the main character, Elena. Elena is a high powered executive in the fashion industry who comes from a wealthy family. She is described as being a twenty-seven year old but neither her attitudes or speech patterns resemble any twenty something I've ever known. There is no back story on how she rose to her position so quickly. There is just a huge lack of depth to her in my opinion. The other main character, Allison, fares a bit better but not by a lot. She has had a harder row to hoe and we do hear a bit about that.
If you're looking for a bit of fluff then you'll probably like this book. I was just looking for something with a bit more depth.
Elena is a single, ultra-successful 27 year old single mother raising a young son. She has supportive parents, a fantastic best friend but has completely struck out when it comes to love. At the dogged persistence of her best friend, Vivian, Elena agrees to begin dating again. Vivian also persuades her to try dating both men and women.
So what does every single mother need if she is going on a date? You got it, a babysitter. Enter Allison, the super cute blond 22 year old senior at NYU. Allison is brash and outspoken, where Elena is reserved and regal. Elena goes out on a series of dates, all quite terrible and comes home to Allison and vents. These two develop a connection over a period of time, even though these two ladies could not be more opposite.
I adored the supporting cast in this story. They are a lively charismatic bunch. They in no way take from the overall book they add depth to the two main characters. Vivian’s humor is crass and I absolutely loved it! There is a good story in here, the characters are interesting and the book is long enough that you feel like the story is really fleshed out.
Also, I like it when the romance builds gradually with no lightning strike of immediate awareness of soulmate-hood. I liked how Elena's attraction to Allison grew, rather than sprang forth full fledged.
I also like that the characters were so likeable. I like lighthearted books, where good things happen to good people and that's what this was. I read the book and enjoyed it so much, I immedately re-read it. For me, this is one of my favorite books now.

However, with my basic knowledge of editing and how a book should be written, I noticed a few things wrong with the book. At times different people talk in the same paragraph, and occasionally I was confused about who in fact was speaking. A couple of the scenes were confusing to me—I wasn’t sure what had happened by the next scene. Some punctuation errors stood out for me too.
I can take a few spelling/grammatical errors in a book—even proof readers miss things sometimes. But this book just seemed to have too many errors.
The story, like I said, was cute. The characters were well thought out and believable. Hence four stars. However, the editing errors spoiled it a bit for me.
This was a truly lovely story about two young women who couldn't have been more different or, at the same time, ultimately more right for each other. It had me laughing out loud with tears in my eyes, and subsequently tears in my eyes from the more deeply emotional scenes too.
This was that rare thing - a book that I will keep on my kindle and read again (maybe more than once!).
Read this book - you will love it, and all the characters within it.
I couldn’t believe that Elena’s son Lucas always seemed to be cute and endearing. There was only one reference in the entire book to him ever behaving badly. My own recollection is that the “twos” may be “terrible” but the threes are thermonuclear… I’ve never been a fan of cute American kids in films and he struck me just like one of those.
Lucas also seemed to be thoroughly spoiled (e.g. the pre-birthday shopping trip of excess which the family take together). It’s not until about 80% in that we get any kind of ‘back story’ on Allison’s foster care experience, including the fact that she never had any toys or presents as a child. The fact that she seemed to feel no resentment towards Lucas (who gets given everything he ever asks for) given her own experiences in foster care, is hard to believe. I thought Melissa Brayden in “Kiss the Girl” did a better representation of a character (Brooklyn) with foster care abandonment issues.
Finally, I found it hard to believe in Elena and Allison as a credible couple. I ‘got’ why Allison would be attracted to Elena, but not the other way round…
I liked this more than the author’s previous book “Fracture” but not as much as a number of others I have read (including the aforementioned “Kiss the Girl”). Probably a 3.5 star book for me…
P.S And am I alone in wondering: "What about Jonathan's parents?"
It's a well written book with an amazing story that begs for a sequel. Its longer than most lesfic books but completely held my interest.
No hesitation in recommending it.
The main characters were funny sexy and interesting it's just a really feel great romance, The sex scenes were very well done, let's have some more please, I highly recommend miss Hughes books, Fracture was great but this one is even better.......
Made me laugh, smile and giggle like a teenager!
