A Review by Wendy
More Than 4 Andrew StarsI have become a big fan of Meghan Quinn. She writes original works with a type of "Special Sauce" to them. She can take every day people who have experienced things that can happen...hard things or really uncomfortable things, whip them all together and make a story which will have you rooting for all the characters to have their moments and be happy.

In this latest book, we have a woman who is lost. She thought her life was going to be focused and with purpose. She was always at the top of her class. She got into Cornell and was on her way.
But then life gave her another one of those ugly hurdles to over come... the kind that can rip your soul and scar you....and if you never really come to terms with all that happened... it can be easier to hide and pretend things are ok... To shrink your circle of friends and life...until you only are dealing with an easy job and no thinking of the future.
We then get another person who is the polar opposite in attitude to our gal. This is a guy who loves Math, Engineering and calculators. His way is open and free. His humor is smart, fast and sometimes off center. He grew up in a very caring household and had all the support anyone could need. He did have his own College hurdle to overcome... dealt with it and wants to move forward and start fresh in this new area and school.
Both of these two people cross paths at the Ice Cream/ Soda Shop where our gal works. She gets roped into to training him as he will be working there for the summer.
What starts out with her being a bitchy sort of trainer.... ends up with these two becoming something very special.
There is amazing dialogue, story arcs and out and out love for what is presented on the page. I felt for our gal....but at the same time, she was not my favorite person. As strong as she was...her hiding so many things bothered me.
My love for our guy was huge... he truly was one of a kind and so good...quirky, caring and just seemed pure of heart. He also was a STUD....yup... the guy was amazing.
Meghan Quinn has written another entertaining read...with all of the "Special Sauce" goodness included.
A gifted copy was provided by author/publisher for an honest review.
When I was in high school I occasionally read books but was consumed by other teenage things so I didn't take the time to appreciate a good book on a cloudy day, wrapped up in a blanket on the couch. It wasn't until I received a Kindle for Christmas one year that my world completely flipped upside down. When looking for books I came across the Contemporary Romance genre and was sold and I haven't turned back since.
You can either find my head buried in my Kindle, listening to inspiring heart ripping music or typing away on the computer twisting and turning the lives of my characters while driving my readers crazy with anticipation.
I currently reside in beautiful Colorado Springs where the sun is always shining and there is a trail waiting to be hiked on every corner. I share a lovely and warm home with the love of my life and my five, four-legged children.
