Jennifer Probst is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I love the way she writes with such realism and humor and warmth. Her characters seem like people I would actually want to meet in real life and then you add in the way she writes about animals and I'm just in love with her books. I also like that her heroines aren't rail thin and they still get the hot guy. Probst also writes a good love scene. She's the type of author where I would (and did) binge buy a bunch of her books. Now I just need to find the time to read them all. ( )

I liked it, but it was a bit tropey and also I'm a bit sick of these men who are damaged and just need the right woman to love them things... Because basically they just act like jerks and I have a hard time coming around to the romance in the end. This was kind of classical romance read, and I'm much more inclined to read the more modern romances. I just didn't feel these characters really. Maybe I need a romance break... ( )

A engaging premise for romance. A pleasant escapist read if contrived. ( )

A good story.
Bit of ex drama. ( )

What happens when a special snowflake meets an unfeeling ass, why chemistry of course. This is one of those pairings where I feel the author took everything they could think of to make these two folks complete opposites and threw into the book. I’m not saying opposites can’t be attracted to each other but this one was beyond unrealistic.

This book contains everything you need for a romance: a past between the two characters, fighting that turns to passion, stupid assumptions keeping them apart and of course jealousy. This is a very straight forward romance and there isn’t much more to add.

You get what you ask for with this book which is a straight romance and that is exactly what this is almost to point of being formulaic. I needed a “brain-break” due to high work stress and decided I hadn’t listened to a good old romance in a long time and chose this one. Now why didn’t I rate it any higher than 3 stars; I didn’t because my taste in stories is changing and I almost didn’t finish this because it was a little too straight forward.
