Both Leena and Braxton are very young and immature in many ways. The opening to the book is between Leena and her dad who seems to have a very distant and cold relationship but is later described in the book as being very close.
The hole premise of this book was love at first sight and how they chose to hide their relationship from everyone.
Brax was treated like dirt by all his employees (her dad being the ring leader) with them going through his computer files, listening in on phone conversations and talking down to him at every opportunity but at the end all is forgiven! What nonsense! This seemed very high school and juvenille in many ways.
When they have their big fight once her father comes between them all she does to mend the relationship is shed a few tears and start stroking him and again all is forgiven! Her dad breaks them up and should have been fired but he couldn't do that to him because he is her father! Rubbish!
Again I say to the author - edit, edit, edit!
I loved the characters, and how...real they were. I've read oodles of books where one or more of the characters would say/do things that I just felt were unrealistic, either for the characters themselves, or just for life in general. While there's drama in here (like any book), I feel like it was more believable drama, and not just drama for the sake of filling pages. I felt like this book is something that could really happen in everyday life, which is very refreshing.
Another of my favorite parts about this book were the differing perspectives. We get to see inside the minds of several people, which enables us (as the reader) to understand the motivations and feelings of more than just one character. That's also refreshing. So many books these days focus on the "I" mindset, and we can only guess about why other characters act the way they do. After seeing inside everyone's mind, I grew to love all the characters, even the intractable Tom.
So...as I said, I can't put my finger on why this was such a good book. I read it all in one sitting, and after I'd finished it, I put it down and literally thought, "Huh. That was an AWESOME book." I absolutely adored it, and even though the ending wrapped up all questions (NO CLIFFHANGER!), I'd still loooove to see a sequel. I'd recommend this book to anyone looking for a light, happy read to put a smile on your face, and I'm going to the author's amazon page right now to see what other irresistible surprises are waiting for me. Happy Reading!
