Oh gosh. If this book hadn't been less than 20K words, I would have not finished it. So in the beginning, Sylvia was acting stupid because Chase literally told her why he was there and she kept asking why he was there when he said to scout a location and she knew that already. Then, she wanted to use the fact that she was born there just to win instead of it being fair. Well newsflash to her, she lives in LA so it's not like she lived there. And at the cookie competition, she expected her friend to make her win just because they were friends. Like... has she ever heard of fair and square? Her entire attitude throughout the entire book was really poor, and as Chase pointed out- childish. Then, she lied to her boss and didn't just tell her that someone else was trying to get the permits. No wonder she got fired. She was such a sore loser as well. And she was like "Chase got my contract" like it was guaranteed for her just because she was born there. And then you have Chase, who was seriously considering withdrawing for her sake. He even offered to withdraw and she said "no" then went on later to rant to her friend that Chase didn't care what happened to her. Um..hello- he just offered to withdraw for you. She was annoying throughout the entire book and I am so glad that Chase got the deal because she didn't deserve it. She deserved everything she got, and more. Also, the jump between chapter 9 and the epilogue was a bit jarring since they went from her still being upset to them being engaged.
