Overall Rating: 3.5 (sXe)
Quick & Dirty summary: Danielle Cunningham and Elliot Parker were childhood friends. Best friends in fact. The kind of friends who promise to marry each other when they turn 30 with cheese snacks as a ring. Now Danielle thinks Elliot’s crazy because he’s holding her to that promise even though they haven’t spoken to each other in years.
I really enjoyed this book. I found Elliot to be delightful and his love for Danielle authentic. Danielle is great too, but I think her backstory needs to be expanded a little. The resolution of the novel is somewhat complicated, emotionally, and I got a little confused. It made an otherwise satisfying ending less so.
I read this pretty much in one go. I laughed a lot, giggling, walking around with a silly smile on my face, as I read this book. It made me feel so good! I love books where the guy knows his mind and himself enough to know when he’s found love. It melts my heart every time!
Is it worth buying? (Kindle $2.99)
If you are feeling a little bit blue, need a pick-me-up, or want a book that’s going to make you giggle, then yes, you should 100% buy this book.
Something else you might enjoy:
Try Creed by Kristen Ashley. It’s a lot darker. But it’s another story about childhood friends who are reunited. You can read my review of the book here.
