My mom read this while on vacation a few months ago and since then has been IMPLORING me to read it I finally did and wow, do we have different taste in books This was torture to read the whole thing was cheesy The writing was bad, the love scenes were hokey, it was at least 100 pages longer than necessary The best thing I can say about it is I M FINALLY DONE WITH IT Can t wait to return it to my mom tomorrow Ugh Never again. I returned this to the library unfinished I found I didn t have the patience to listen to this woman s problems and what was keeping her back from finding love.
