My biggest problem with this book was the unnatural conversations. I understand that there is a need to set the background of the story in a book, but it was just strange to have it done in a conversation. I just don't think that two friends who have been best friends for over 20 years and living together for 6 years would have conversations about their live as if they just met a week ago. Another problem I had with this book was the way things just sort of fell predictably into place. It was a quick, easy, mindless read though.
Millie Crisswell's contemporary romances are alot of run to read. Just the right mix of romance and humor!
Another good book by Ms Criswell. I enjoyed Samantha's and Jack's story. I also liked how Ms Criswell slipped in the story line of "Asking for Trouble" as Samantha's manuscript in progress.
This is another favorite, I've read this book quite a few times and fall in love with it more every time
Great story about a good friendship. Lots of twists and turns!
At 31, Samantha Brady, who hears the tick-tock of her biological clock, is at loose ends. She has had a string of dead-end jobs while waiting for her book to be published and to settle down with the man of her dreams, her roommate, Jack Turner. But they are reluctant to jeopardize their friendship with a romantic entanglement. Jack has been Samantha's friend since childhood, and it seemed only natural for her to share his apartment when she moved to New York City. He has avoided long-term involvements and considers himself a permanent bachelor because of his difficult childhood, so his companionable relationship with Samantha always worked well--until they spend the night in a motel room. Alcohol and an unwise game of spin the bottle turn into one glorious night for the roommates, with unforeseen consequences that threaten their friendship. Popular and funny Criswell turns in an enjoyable light romance.
Fine. Total chick-flick book though. This was one of those, "I'm just starting to get into reading" reads that you can fly through. It's not til reading a dozen or so books like this that you figure out they are all the same and predictable in nature.
