I rarely abandon a book, even if I have to work hard at it, but I could not finish this book. I didn't even skim the last 30%, having forced myself to the 70% mark and getting more and more annoyed by the characters. Honestly, what a terrible book: the characters are in the THIRTIES and both have good jobs and homes, etc. and they are still agonizing over stuff that happened when they were in their early 20s? Had nothing else happened to help them mature in the intervening years? Seriously? It didn't take long for me to get annoyed with Emma AND Luke for constantly revisiting their "traumas" from ten years earlier. OMG. And the same stuff (hesitations, etc.) were repeated over and over. Add to that contrived situations with dogs who were cute but took up WAY too many pages and no real chemistry between the characters, and I just gave up.
The writing was bad too. I've never read anything by this author and I'm afraid this one insures I won't try any more.
