I'm almost never compelled to write negative reviews, but this book seriously annoyed me. I'm not a book snob. I like predictable fluffy romance novels. But this one started feeling painful as the story dragged on. I could not stop rolling my eyes at the endless cliches about men, women, and relationships. From the corny spent the first date taking turns having diarrhea in the bathroom but we still like each other scene, to her barfing & he's suuuuch a good caretaker, to him being great with babies, to her being stupidly jealous over very obvious misunderstandings...on and on. It's like a teenager's idea of how love blooms, not written from the perspective of someone who's actually ever been in a relationship. The dialogue between the characters is so banal.
I gave it two stars instead of one because it did change my perspective on celebrities. It never really occurred to me just how hard it must be to have your life under constant scrutiny. I appreciated that insight.
In the end, the joke's on me. I still bought the 2nd book in this series, hoping a sophomore effort would be a little better. So, so wrong. Sigh.
