    Hard to follow in the beginning but liked how it came together.

    Couldn't get attached to the characters

    I read the sample of this at the end of 'Waking up Married', the impression I got was good, but the story took a different direction from where I thought it would go. The fake marriage unravelled way too fast, and I didn't care for either Evie or Logan, my favorite character wad actually Caroline, the mom!

    I'm not yet sure how to take the new Harlequin KISS line. It advertises "fresh, fun, and flirty" yet neither of the books I've read so far really fit my definition of those terms. However, this one I did like--it just wasn't at all what I was expecting given the cover (I know--don't judge a book yada, yada; but honestly, who decided on this one? It's all lighthearted and fun, but the book is not--though in a good way.) 

    I ended up liking this book quite a bit--both Evie and Logan are great characters, especially once we figure out just what it is that scared Logan off so many years ago. I was pulling for their HEA, and would even have liked to have seen Logan's brother (and Evie's business partner) Max get one too. He was a lot of fun. Chances are good I'll look for more from this author, based on this book.

    However, at first it was hard to get past the let's-get-married-to-save-our-company-and-divorce-later idea that Max had. It just seemed like too much of a stretch in a "modern" romance. However, that idea thankfully went by the wayside once Evie and Logan met up again, and then the story focused on them, as it should. I liked the reunited lovers troupe here; though it was a bit frustrating that we don't really ever see what it was that made them separate in the first place. I also was never really quite sure how to take Logan and Max's mother--sometimes she was incredibly insensitive, especially toward Logan, other times she was great. In the end I had a really hard time deciding between three and four stars. I've already changed that rating twice, and may do so again...

    Not sure...

    Good dry humor but not enough character development. A good read. Needed something more. Good ending tho.
