Here's what I'm giving it:

Rating: 4 stars

Here's why:

After a little bit of a hiatus, I'm back! And what better way to start it off than by reviewing some romance.

There are four major reasons why I liked this book. Here they are in no particular order:

1) I'm a speed reader so any book that I can finish in under 2 hours is a good thing. (Mainly because I rarely get 2 hours straight, uninterrupted time to myself anymore.)

2) Both romantic leads, Bella and Gil, had flaws that were believable and had me going back and forth on the emotional rollercoaster with them. She acted like a party girl but wasn't as shallow as people thought her to be. He was my favorite kind of guy, a nerd who seemed sophisticated, but was a true clueless geek at heart.

3) Both had past love issues that shaped their behaviors and attitudes toward each other, relationships and love.

4) The biggest, but most pleasant shock, was the lack of overly descriptive sex scenes. Foreplay was shown but when it came to the down and dirty, the author tastefully faded to black.

Would I recommend this? Yes, I would recommend this one. It is a nice change of pace from the way most romances are written today.
