Beware of Spoilers!
Heroine (Clara):3/5 – she needed to…
Hero (Boone): 4/5
Grovel: none although the h needed to do some grovelling for a change
Cheating: h’s boyfriend cheated on her with her sister
Average score: 3/5
Best Line: I loved Boone for this alone:
“Clara’s got a job,” Boone replied. “She could support me.” “Isn’t that the way an equal marriage should work?” Boone asked.
H to h: “You can paint it white and braid its mane, but at the end of the day, you can’t turn an ass into a unicorn, no matter how much glitter and flowers you sprinkle on it.”
Worst Line: I fucking hate these arguments in both romances and real-life:
“I’m not a fucking child anymore, so stop treating me like one.”
“Oh, yeah? Stop acting like one then.”
This love story was similar to the movie “Sweet Home Alabama” but slightly better and with more family drama. The h has to go to her hometown for her sister’s wedding (her sister is marrying h’s ex who cheated on her with her own sister) where h bumps into the H who left her 7 years ago after a lot of misunderstandings.
This is a first for me but…I didn’t actually want the h and H to get together at the end. I felt they were too bad for each other. I thought they should have forgiven each other for the misunderstandings and then moved on….to be with other people.
- I enjoyed the way Boone sparred against Clara’s family
- I so badly wanted Clara to tell her family to fuck off and to leave!!!
- Clara’s garden was so sweet
- Clara needed to woman the fuck up and stop crying and running away all the time
- The sudden change of heart by h’s father was not realistic
This had so much potential
