Intro: It’s not a good feeling to have to rewrite what you’ve already written. My computer decided to update in the midst of writing this review. The review didn’t save and I had to remember what I wrote which is never easy. It’s been a bad couple of weeks.
Heroine: Emma-I loved Emma. I felt for her so badly. I became quite protective over her. In a sort of bad way because it predisposed me to not liking the hero. But I couldn’t quite help myself. She was such a compelling and likable heroine.
Hero: Alex-I spent the majority of the book wanting to throttle him. I am not even ashamed to admit it. Yes, he had reasons for doing what he did. But I still felt a sort of solidarity with Emma and, yeah, I wanted to throttle him. I did end up liking him. But it took a while.
Chemistry: They were so perfect in that angsty way. Their history was painful and there were so many answers that needed to be had. I love the journey that they went through. It was so painful but I do love reading a good bit of angst.
Conclusion: I really loved this book. Emma and Alex were such engaging characters and their story was the perfect sort of angst. Realistic but not too painful. I was rooting for both of them.
Lauren Layne is a snarky cynic with a serious weakness for happily ever afters.
Marrying her high school sweetheart was a good start. *cue Disney soundtrack.* But Lauren wanted all romance, all the time.
Now she writes fictional happy endings, and considers her job done well if you swoon while reading her books. Don't worry. You will.
Once upon a time she lived in a Manhattan high-rise, but now she's on the laid-back train in the Seattle area. If you ever find yourself in Issaquah, she'll probably buy you a drink. Maybe.
