My Rating: 2/5 Stars
I received a copy of this novel through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
This book fell very short of the mark for me. I've really enjoyed the other stories I've read in this series, but this one felt very different to me. The storyline itself had potential, but I never felt that it was reached.
Melanie was not a character that I could relate with easily. She was very immature and often seemed more like a teenager than a 27 year old woman. There were moments where I enjoyed her, but she was too silly for me to ever really enjoy. She was bouncing from relationship to relationship in search of love, but then was bothered when she didn't think men wanted to commit. I felt she was somewhat hypocritical in her views because even though she was never with more than one man at a time, she never gave herself time to consider if she really wanted to be with them before expecting them to want to make a big commitment to her.
Matt, the main guy in this story was likable, but you never really got to see much of him. There was some flirting between the characters and you saw some of his sweet side, but you never really got to know him. Other than what he was studying in school he was a mystery. I would have liked more development with his character instead of so much focus on Melanie running from him because she thought he was a player.
Overall this was just an ok read for me. It wasn't particularly enjoyable but I didn't completely dislike it either. It was just fell short of the expectations I had based on my experience with this series and author previously.
