What I Loved: Connor was a fantastic guy. I love that he wasn’t an anti-hero but a strong, straight-forward, gotta get the girl I like kind of guy! He really struck me as the kind of guy you could build your romance dreams around because he could exist in the real world! In other words, he is the kind of contemporary romance leading guy that I can root for.
What I Liked: Molly was a real woman. She kind of reminds me of the lead character out of Wishes by Jude Deveraux. She has curves, people who love her, but doesn’t see her own beauty. I also enjoyed the friendships and realizations that she has.
Complaints: Molly’s insecurities were a little draining. I wish she would have loved something about herself. I was also a little disappointed at the end when she didn’t just learn to love herself as she was though I was also really proud of her for getting her goal.
Who I would recommend it too: I would say this is a good quick read for someone who likes a hot contemporary romance with real types of people involved. I think it would be fun for a chick-lit reader who can handle a little steam.
Why I gave it a 3: I enjoyed this quick read, especially Connor. The sex was a little rushed for me personally. I generally have this problem with short reads, they tend to feel rushed and choppy to me. They have to be to pack a punch. If you are a fan of the quick, short read then I think you will enjoy this immensely.
