You know what, this book was ok, but just ok. But I was sort of rolling my eyes a bit during it – maybe I am just too old and cynical now.
It is super fluffy and over the top nice, not that in general there is anything wrong with nice, but at 50% I was sort of wondering what the heck there was to happen, which apparently was solved by adding in a couple of unnecessary dramas.
But it reads like a book for those who never grew out of Disney films, and desperately wanting to be a Disney princess. Now, I can still watch Beauty and the Beast like the best of them, but I am old enough to realise no man is perfect, unlike it seems, the hero in this story!
There were odd occasion in this book the timings of things were just off, not massively, but enough to annoy me, for example, it opens with Erin in her class, and her students coming in, she spends a paragraph daydreaming about how she got to where she is as she is so great and independent, then all of a sudden, supposedly an entire period has gone by, with her sat there daydreaming, and ignoring her students. Or when Erin and Walker are out for a meal, order drinks and a meal, say 5 sentences to each other, and their meals are suddenly there and they need more drinks! How slow……….do…………..they……………….speak.
Oh, and Erin, who is 28 – describes the losing of her virginity “the most sacred gift I could give”
But apparently, everyone loves each other, they are all super great and have zero reservations about an unexpected pregnancy, even the 23 year old newly qualified teacher Walker, who knocked up some girl on a one night stand. No he is so great and soooo in lurvvve, he is super super happy. And Awesome. Oh and ofc – RICH!
So, if you want a grown up version of a Perfect Disney story – with added sex (which the hero is super great at, and they can and do get up to all sorts in not so appropriate places such is their not to be experienced by us mere mortals level of passion), and the heroine spends so much of the book wet, I am surprised they even noticed when her waters broke, then go for it.
