“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”

Yes, this is that kind of book! See the above quote. I would read this story again and again. I highly recommend reading it. This book will either make you swoon, laugh out loud, blush, cry, or all of the above.

Rating: 4 out of 5.


I loved it and would read it again. It has all the things I love about romance novels plus a little lagniappe. (aka something extra!)

Rating: 3 out of 5.


An enjoyable read with all the elements of a typical romance but… I’ve either read the storyline too many times to give it 4 stars or I totally forgot about the story an hour after reading it.

Rating: 2 out of 5.


Meh! Gave it a shot but didn’t feel it, ya know? Maybe it’s not my style or there were too many typos, not enough common sense, good taste, basic science, or whatever that might’ve made it a struggle to get through.

Rating: 1 out of 2.


Don’t bother. I’ve either read it all the way through and hated it, or it was too grueling to finish and abandoned it somewhere along the way.
