There is no question the book is well written and the author is literate. I still did not like the book. The "heroine" was snobby and self-entitled just because she grew her own garden and could cook. She was judgmental because the character meant to be her male counterpart in the book wasn't in the right attire/background at their initial meeting or had the right bumper sticker on his truck. The way she blanketed a snap judgment over him (REPEATEDLY throughout the book) just because he had served in the military was annoying. I'm sorry, I was unaware that the people serving our country had joined simply because they wanted oil. Of COURSE there are things that were NOT immediately revealed to them regarding missions they are assigned to. It was frustrating the way she repeatedly harped on people who were in the military. It was ignorant to blanket a judgment like that regarding anyone's reason for enlisting. It was offensive and annoying.

The banter flailed, and I couldn't ascertain how some of Vanessa's remarks were described as witty enough to impress anyone.

The unnecessary drama at the end of book just made the book all that more infuriating. She's supposedly in love with this guy, and finds supposedly incriminating evidence about a past relationship he had, and instead of confronting him or asking him about it like the adult she's supposed to be (you'd think if she was smart enough how to use the word neophyte - which I don't care about, but apparently, the character Vanessa does - she'd know what the phrase "act like an adult" means, and then DO it), she abruptly decides the relationship is over and goes home to sulk in her bathtub. There were some points the author made in the book that were truly enlightening, but there weren't enough of them to ever convince me to buy another one of her books again.

I don't mind when romance books are predictable (because we're obviously not reading these books because we don't want to see people in love and happy at the end). But when drama is added JUST so there's drama, and idiotic lines like "There's nothing hotter than a messed-up soldier...." litter the book, and the character is a snob just because she has a developed vocabulary and is uptight enough that she has to coordinate a soundtrack based on what she's cooking overwhelm the book, that just equates to a huge waste of time and money.
