My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Like most romance books, we know from page one how this one will end. I laughed my way through this one. I loved the two main characters, and most of their families and friends had depth, so we fell in love with the side characters, too.

I loved that there was an epilogue, too, to tie up the loose ends. It was needed in this case, and I enjoyed every moment of it. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this story. I didn’t really know where it was going until the end, which was nice for a change. I did feel that a lot of the sex scenes were placed there for filler, like the author was being paid by word and had to get so many words onto the page to make it worthwhile.

The rest of the story was great. I will be reading other stories by the author, if I run into them.

I met my reading goal for 2018. In fact, I exceeded it. I slowed down on the reading because of it. I shouldn’t, but I did.

Last night, I ended up going to sleep before 8 pm. My eyes were just too tired to read. Couldn’t focus on anything. So I just bundled up and slept. I will get back to it today.
