I wanted to love this book. I really did. I always love a good story where the heroine and/or hero have flaws and are not abnormally perfect. Sigh. I'm so happy I finished this book because I felt that Tyler and Gunnar's relationship had a good build-up, steamy beginning then they plateaued thanks to a few hang ups that Tyler had. Don't get me wrong, it is a decent story and I might even read another story from this author in the future. Also the characterization of Tyler and Gunnar are realistic as a couple. I didn't find it as far-fetched as Tyler seemed to

I could go on and on about this book but it will read more as whining so I chose a few reasons why I liked/disliked...

PROS: Loved the unique names, adored the fact the hero was Norwegian (made Gunnar more of a stand out). Familial relationships both Tyler and Gunnar have pretty awesome families. Gunnar and Tyler...I like them together. Quincy...he was an okay antagonist who realized the error in his ways.

CONS: TOO WORDY...I skimmed through a good percentage of the book. The story was being dragged out. At times, i began to lose interest. BEING BLUDGEONED to a pulp my Tyler's insecurities. I get it, man, she feels she is too big and needs to lose about twenty pounds *rolls eyes*. I wanted to go to Tyler mid book and shake her. I understand weight loss struggle and the feelings it entails but Tyler laid it on a bit thick.

So would I recommend for others to read? Sure. Is it a DIK? No. ( )
