    Fresh and Fun!

    In all honesty, I really had no idea what to expect when I started this book. I kind of picked it because I really liked the cover and I love books where best friends realize they love each other.

    So, all that being said, I really did love this book. It was different and fun and there were some super funny parts that had me laughing out loud. I don't know if all of you readers have quite figured this out yet, but I always love to add in a little bit of contemporary fiction to swerve my genre reads. This book was a nice change in pace for me.

    Our main character, Margo, I could relate with. Not that I'm necessarily a marriage hating fiend (although, even though married, I just may be *wink*), but I could understand her frustrations. I could understand her thoughts and feelings about wanting to be her own person and not wanting to hurt or get hurt. Now, there is a whole lot more to those feelings that we find out along the way, but, I could understand her. I loved how she was always willing to stand on her own two feet and how she could kick it to the man if necessary.

    Chris, the best friend, was an interesting character. I didn't quite know how to read him at first. Don't get me wrong, I knew that I liked him, I just didn't know if he was the self absorbed hottie or the hottie who gets all the woman, but isn't a hothead about it. Having read the book, I'd go with the latter. I loved Chris and his character in this book. He was not only a sexy bit a man flesh, but he had personality and charisma. Which, yeah he used more often than not to bring the chicks to his bed, but I could always tell that he cared for Margo. Even if those feelings may have been only best friend feelings, he still always cared for her above others, and that I really loved about him.

    Really, the only thing I didn't truly get in the book was Margo's unadulterated obsession with Elvis. Possibly because I think he is just alright, but I don't necessarily think it was Elvis that was the point as much as that she be loved in spite of it.

    But, I thought the plot flowed and paced nicely and I really did care for the characters that McKelden wrote. They were flawed and funny and I needed a little bit of love in my life the night I read this. I needed a good story with a happy ending to cheer and brighten up my day. And that is exactly what I got.

    So, if any of you are looking for a cute story with some love and romance, a cross country road trip with a sexy man in a Jeep (not a car mind you, a Jeep) and a really steamy scene in the outskirts of my favorite state in the nation, Arizona, than you really should pick up this book. I recommend it for those who enjoy Adult Contemporary Fiction with Romance thrown in.
