My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I stared out really enjoying this book, to an extent. It made me laugh. I thought it was cute. But there are some downfalls. It needs editing. There's lots of wrong words, not mispelled, just the wrong word. The let's pretend plot has been done so many times. But, this was done cleverly and I liked that, but then the author ruined it. The heroine was way too violent. I enjoy spunky, strong characters, but violent? For no reason? It was a little over the top. What man wants a woman who beats on him? Also, what you think is just a cute little chick lit romance, turns into some stalker suspense. I feel that the book would have been just fine without that. The author took what was already a good story and ruined it with the stalker plot. It wasn't necessary and really didn't lend much to the story at all. With a little work, this could be a good story. Seriously, the author nows how to be witty, and loving, but it just feels like too much was added to just make it longer, and it wasn't needed.
