A great romance between a soft-hearted artist and a loveable con-man who believes he is not good enough for love.

Random Ramblings

  • Aww, the hero was so sweet to step up and look after his sister-in-law and nieces
  • Loved The Princess Bride reference
  • It was funny that he thought she lacked confidence when it was so clear he also lacked self-esteem with all of his references of not being good enough for a ‘good girl’
  • Her rant at the heroine in the audio romance she was listening to was too true!
  • I loved that they challenged each other and grew as a couple (after a few hiccups from the hero!)
  • One of the most sweetest and romantic proposals ever!

Overall Feeling:

“For her, I’d stay.”
