REVIEW:
A fun read!
I was surprised I enjoyed this story as much as I did, considering most of it was a giant cliché. I felt it was totally predictable romance, but I liked that about it too. It was exactly what I was looking to read at the time.
Strong characters make this fluffy story and easy and enjoyable read. I just can't see me reading it over and over.
People who are into watching soap operas will definitely appreciate this book. More than I did surely. I am not a soap opera fan. Too dramatic at times for me, and so was this story. The drama, the who's-sleeping-with-who, and the plot were all reminiscent of daytime television.
Still it flowed well and had a beginning, middle and end. 


3/5

  2. I'm a fan of romance so I know predictability is not unusual. I love it when an author can make me love the book despite that. This sounds cute but I haven't watched a soap in decades (I'd rather read).

  3. I enjoyed this one...and also the author's memoir, All the Days of My Life (so far). But then again, I am a fan of Alison's work on the soap...and admittedly, I have enjoyed how soaps can take me out of my own drama...lol. Thanks for sharing.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
