Liked this first book in the triology, but found the other two following the same lines so got bored and couldn't finish them. This one was a good, fluff read, bit of escapism, competent writing and story line. Don't expect anything different for a rom-com.

I don't know what to say. I started reading this and I was quickly drawn in. I enjoyed the characters and - while some of the story was a little...over the top - a lot of it was just great.
I probably shouldn't write a review right now because I'm still feeling a little rage-licous. I freaking hated the ending. The ending turned into one big WTF for me.
I really hate it when non-trained people demand to be taken on a dangerous activity. It screams "stupid" over and over again. I hate it sooo much because it is only a plot mover and it's beyond obvious. And it makes the person who demands to come along look extra special stupid.
It's like this: My thing is English and books. Words. My husband's specialty...numbers. Should I demand to do his job daily because I *think* he could *possibly* get into trouble at work? No. That's just stupid. His response would be: "Don't you have some books to read?"
So why do authors think it's a great idea to send untrained people into situations where they are a hindrance and a burden?? It's not cute and it's not funny. It is a "I think I'm going to skim in rage now" moment.
Three stars which would have been 4-4 1/2 if not for the incredibly annoying ending.
