You know how Cinderella had the whole glass slipper, pumpkin carriage, fairy godmother thing?
Yeah…with foot-destroying stilettos, Uber, and my Twitter horoscope, my life is far from a happily ever after.
In fact, instead of Prince Charming, I end up dating every slimy, scaly, brainless frog in the kingdom of Manhattan. And by frog, I mean all of the stereotypical bad guys that Mom and Lifetime movies warned you about.
The meathead player.
The mommy's boy.
If they suck at relationships, I’ve probably kissed those cold, clammy lips in the hopes of finding love. Until one day, when one man with commitment issues offers to help me find the Romeo to my Juliet.
But what happens when the frog who was never supposed to turn into a prince kisses you at midnight? Ok fine, he propositioned me for some afternoon delight after brunch, but not everything can be straight out of a fairytale.
Oh man, reading this book makes me so glad I'm married lol. Poor Gemma's dating choices have left everything to be desired. I have to admire that even though her feelings for Oliver began to gravitate toward something more, she stayed true to herself when Oliver's outlook on their non-relationship didn't quite match hers.
This book has characters who are extremely relatable, and that gives this story is a definite realistic vibe. One thing that I really liked about this book is that neither Gemma nor Oliver were into playing the mind games; they each spoke their minds about what they liked and didn't like, and at the start they each agreed about the nature of their arrangement. The first time they had the sexuals wasn't all smooth and hiccup-free like it seems to be in most books; nope, they had the awkwardness that occurs when you're getting it in the first few times with someone new.
Author of romance novels such as Red Card and On Thin Ice, Carrie Aarons writes sexy, swoony and sarcastic characters who won't get out of her head until she puts them down on a page.
Carrie has wanted to be an author since the first time she opened a book, and can’t imagine a better or more maddening profession.
When she isn't in a writing coma, Carrie is chasing her Great Dane/Lab puppy through the dog parks of New Jersey, or trying to make her husband binge watch the latest Netflix craze.
