I was given this book by the author for an honest review.
The first thing that struck me about this book was its title. I have to give the author props for that because it's unique and appropriate to the story.
This is the first book I've read by this author, so I had no idea what to expect. The set up is kind of slow. We don't even get to meet the hero until chapter seven. There is also a lot of extra stuff that goes on with her family that I really could have done without.
I did, however, enjoy Kai and Roxy's romance. It was cute and fun. The author threw a little twist into their relationship that I wasn't expecting. While it was a bit odd, the author provided a believable explanation. It did, however, make me wonder if the author's other books have a similar twist.
The editing in this one is decent, however, there were some issues. Nothing that pulled me out of the story too much, though. My biggest issue with the story is that I wanted more of Kai and Roxy and less of Baggy, Roxy's grandmother, and Roxy's sister Ruthie who often times seemed to steal the show as it were.
I would recommend this book to those looking for a light, fun romance surrounded by family hi-jinks.
These bios are generally rather dry, so I thought I'd shake up the format a little bit. Here are ten not-so-interesting tidbits about me: 1. I despise whipped cream. There, I admitted it in writing. Let the ridiculing begin. 2. Even though I have lived as far south as Key Largo, Florida and as far north as Maine, I landed in the middle. 3. If I don't make a conscious effort not to, I will drink nothing but tea morning, noon and night. Hot tea, sweet tea, green tea - I love it all. 4. There doesn't seem to be much in life that is better than coming home to a big dog who is overjoyed to see me. My other family members usually show significantly less enthusiasm about my return. 5. Singing in my bestest, loudest voice does not make my family put on their happy faces. This includes the big, loving dog referenced above. 6. Yes, I am aware that bestest is not a word. 7. Dorothy was right. There's no place like home. 8. All of the numerous bottles in my shower must be lined up, with their labels facing out. It makes me feel a little like Julia Roberts' mean husband from the movie 'Sleeping with the Enemy', but I can't seem to control this particular quirk. 9. I love, love, love finding a great bargain. 10. Did I mention that I hate whipped cream? It makes my stomach churn to look at it, touch it, smell it or even think about it. Great - now I'm thinking about it. Ick!
