“Striking the perfect balance between tart wit and sweet romance … a thoughtful blend of chick lit and women’s fiction.” (Booklist)
I love the escapism of a good chick-lit, fluffy, beach read but this one was paced very oddly and showed no character development, and required too much suspensions of belief to enjoy. The main character changed but it was nearly instantaneously. Everything seemed so instantaneous in the book, and then it just ended. I really wanted to enjoy this book and this character but it was hard. So hard.
I doubt it.
The audio narration was great, I had no issues with it.
The secondary love interest. It was really pointless.
The story had the bones of what could have been a fantastic, fun, fluffy read. The dumped girl that builds herself up again is one of my favorite plots, this one just left me feeling empty and slightly frustrated.
