So Sara Ney is pretty hit or miss for me. I loved The Learning Hours, Jock Rule, and Jock Row. But this one seriously missed the mark for me. Long story short, Noah is so self conscious about his looks and status, that he never stops to think about his actions will affect Miranda and causes her a lot of pain. I fail to see any reason why she would want to keep pursuing the relationship.
For starters, the premise was almost exactly like The Lying Hours. Guy and girl are messaging, but when it comes time to meet in person, he sends his jerk friend in his place (though the reasoning differs). Noah fessed up a lot faster than Abraham did but still didn't tell Miranda the whole truth. THEN he takes her out on a date in public without warning her, "Oh hey, I'm a pretty famous baseball player and will likely garner some unwanted attention while we're out." He was so worried about protecting himself. It felt like he never bothered to stop and consider her feelings and how his actions might affect her. So she's caught completely off-guard. And then, when online trolls are mean to her, predictably, he ghosts her. And everyone's all, ooooh, he's sensitive, you'll have to pursue him. Not once did he give Miranda a reason to fight for him besides being fun to talk to. Pretty sure she could have found someone else.
