I definitely laughed out loud a few times-- but I also kept getting pulled out of the story because of Bobby Tom and his super-alpha alpha maleness. Like, sometimes an alpha male hero makes me roll my eyes, but the Bobby Tom character kind of pushed me into complete disdain. And Gracie Snow, as his foil, was almost too innocent, too naive, and too damn pushover-y.
I read the whole book, and overall I enjoyed it, but its not a keeper.
This is a cute, light and fast read. Very typical of all Susan Elizabeth Phillips' books. I enjoy that she takes secondary characters from one book and makes them the main character in another. This book featured Bobby Tom Denton from It Had To Be You.
This is probably the lowest I have rated a book. This story didn't work for me. BT was hard to like and I had a hard time picturing Gracie as the heroine. The secondary romance was a little distracting. However, it was a cute story as a whole, It just didn't work for me, Especially the ending. This was my first SEP book and I hope the others are better. It did make me laugh a few times, the ice cream scene was hillarious. All in all, I wouldn't not reccommend it, but I wouldn't pay overnight shipping to get it. On to Laird of the Mist by Paula Quinn.
While I don't normally enjoy romance novels, this book was a thoroughly enjoyable before bed read. It gets a little frustrating toward the end, but, like all good books, has a happy ending.
I didn't like this book when I first started. Didn't like the characters, or the story, but, I tell you, about 60 pages in, I was hooked! Couldn't put it down, and loved the sweet ending.
