a6351010c968141b70f478f4ed0088e5

Hero (Boone): 4/5

Plot: 3/5

Grovel: none although the h needed to do some grovelling for a change

Cheating: h’s boyfriend cheated on her with her sister

HEA: yes

Triggers: none

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.”

Personal Review:

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.

Random Ramblings:

  • 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

Overall Feeling:

This had so much potential
