This was a novella about two people who at first seemed polar opposites. This story was based in England, which honestly isn't my favorite thing in contemporary literature, but it was okay. The hero is of Italian descent and very swoon worthy. The heroine is described where I think she was full figured and I love to read about a real sized woman.

It starts at the heroine's friends' wedding to the heroine's ex. She was asked to be a bridesmaid basically to rub it in her face she wasn't marrying the groom. I know, not a real friend. To add insult to injury she was put in a dress that was WAY too small for her figure but she did because of pride and to let them know she wasn't broken by their marriage. It was also said that the groom was a big time cheater, even sleeping with some of the other bridesmaids. Ewww! Well, the best man, the hero of the story comes to the aid of our heroine when her dress literally splits down both sides, exposing her upper assets to the crowd of onlookers. Yes, at church.
After that, they have a heat charged moment in a dressing room, which is interrupted.

This wasn't a bad book but I never engaged with the characters. I didn't dislike them but I didn't love them either. There really wasn't a lot of story, maybe due to the length, but I just felt kind of "Meh".
There was a lot of steamy sex scenes but those fell short for me too. I don't know but this one just didn't gel for me and I won't be reading more in this series.


  1. Are there any particular reasons you don't like contemporary England?

  2. It amazes me that I can read a review of a book that was just so-so for Kay, but yet I think it might really work for me! I may check this one out! -Anne

  3. Kate, I can't quite put my finger on it but I have liked other contemporary English books.
