Personal Review:
A good nerdy love story between a heroine who always does good for others and a hero who can be a little bit of an arse!

Random Ramblings
•The group’s dynamic with Alex was definitely unusual. His and Sandra’s story was my least favourite in this series because they don’t seem to match each other
•I REALLY hate younger hero/older heroine romances – why was this not mentioned in the blurb!!! I don’t want to lose another good author…


•I adore Janie
•The cuddle thing was weird
•At times the book was starting to feel a bit ‘preach-y’ especially with the discussion of politically correct language
•Pizza Shoes…’nuff said
•Dan and Kat intrigue me
•I would have liked an epilogue to see how he coped with having kids considering his concerns

Overall Feeling:

“You need to love yourself. Because, if you can’t love yourself, then I can’t count on your love for me.”
