Having most of the characters in a book suffer from the same condition "I've just seen her/him and know she/he is THE ONE" is trite. In a way it is a lazy form of writing because the author never has to create a plausible romantic build up. We are told the characters are in love and it's a done deal. Some of the characters don't even have to hear the other person speak before being hit with an arrow from the fast food version of Cupid.
This is two minutes after Ted meets Caroline:
"He wanted to talk to her forever. With a clarity he couldn’t begin to fathom just then, he knew he’d never run out of things to say to her."
The whole drama in the book results from a ridiculous amount of immature behavior by adults who should know better. Smitty needs some big boy panties. The demise of a six week relationship, especially when you went into it light-heartedly should not make you leave the hemisphere. Ted and Caroline could have handled the initial situation so much better. We have a bunch of successful males in their thirties acting like Grade 8 girls.
Even if you are okay with the insta-love, what is the huge rush to want to have babies with someone you've just met?
Ted's mother morphs back and forth between wonderful and harpy. Her verbal scud missile near the end followed by another 180 made me scream "Pick a persona already!"
Ted shows his wishy-washy nature both in his personal life and at work. Imagine a pediatric oncologist leaving his job with 12 hours notice and his boss saying come back any time. Hmmm... If you are working 90 hour weeks doesn't that mean you are dumping a lot of work without notice on your colleagues?
There are at least three more quickie romances, but ultimately it is Caroline's weakness that causes the book to fail. We are told that she has survived and learned a lot from a previous bad relationship, but all we get is a Tammy Wynette version of Stand By Your Man. Having the magic poof back in was a huge disappointment. I feel like we need a Dr. Phil intervention. Caroline does make a great point when she says, "It was right out of a bad soap opera, for heaven’s sakes." Yep. Couldn't agree more.
The ironic thing is that I really like how Marie Force writes, which is why this gets two stars instead of one. It would be great to read a crock pot romance instead of the microwave popcorn version.
