A Review by Wendy

Yeah, I know that title is like What???? But you have to think Joe Pesci and him going Ok Ok Ok to get where I am going. This Book Was Everything. PERIOD. It was so good right off the bat, I sent an email to the author letting her know I was howling and snorting and sore from laughing so hard. This book started at a really high level and pedal to metal kept up the banter, the pacing, the frustration and stubbornness, and seriously smokin' hot sexy times. (I am talking really sexy times, people)

Like I said it was EVERYTHING.

Now the blurb and the notes by Ms. Score tell you exactly what you are going to get. Yet, even with those descriptions and how accurate they are, you will not be prepared for the heart squeezes, the swoon-worthy moments or the overwhelming wishes to slap an idiot.

There is a lot in this story that rings very current and true.
It is handled well as nothing is perfect, it is dealt with in the manner all too much as it has been in the past. What works so well is the way growth happens and the care given in confronting it.

All of the characters rock...from the main couple to their parents, to friends and co-workers. There wasn't a missed step in creating this world and the people in it. Did everyone DO everything right...No because that is not how we humans behave. Instead of a la de da fairy tale (there were fairy tale elements, I admit), you got the messy, the real and in the end a HEA to totally love.

IF you want to be thoroughly engaged, to laugh your head off and then feel like a cold shower is needed, then Please, Please get this book. You will not be sorry.

A gifted copy was provided by author/publisher for an honest review.

Lucy is a Wall Street Journal and #1 Amazon Kindle Store bestseller of romantic comedies and contemporary romance. She grew up in rural Pennsylvania with a lot of time on her hands and a big imagination. She was the oldest of three in a book-obsessed household. Dinners were often spent in silence while family members had their noses buried in books. A passion for writing took hold at five when she taught her brother to write his name on the bathroom door.
She started writing (on paper) in the second grade, first about pilgrims on the Mayflower and over the years graduated to essays, articles, blogs, and finally books. "Pretend You're Mine" was her runaway hit and she's been writing full-time ever since. Non-romance-writing jobs have included event planner, bartender, newspaper lackey, and yoga instructor.
Lucy and Mr. Lucy, enjoy spending time with their 1.7 million nieces and nephews and laying on beaches with umbrella drinks.
