Quick and easy read. This is your stereotypical RomCom and could easily be a movie with Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant, except for the honeymoon scene that gets unnecessarily graphic during the last few pages of the book. Funny - pokes fun of romance novels and sleazy daytime talk shows - and shows growth of a relationship over a longer period of time, including resolution of past hurts. Of course, the situation in which the characters find themselves is not one that is common to many people, it is still believable to a certain extent. the resolution of the plot is too swift, though, and results in an ending that seems forced. All in all, a fun read if you are simply looking to be entertained.

The story itself was about 180 pages long. This romance is cute and funny. There is conflict with a sweet resolution. It is lovely to read a contemporary romance where the heroine and hero have high standards and morals.

This is a contemporary romance with a twist, in my opinion. The main characters are virgins in a time when that is almost considered a disease. Just understand that for those who consider this "slow-moving", it is more about a higher moral code. Those who believe the ending is too racy have likely not read too many other contemporary romances. Taken as I believe it's intended, I thought it was wonderful! The scenery descriptions make you feel it, smell it, and experience the Alaska I hope truly exists. The only contrived part is the incidental involvement of robbers, but I think the ultimate explanation satisfied their climatic presence nicely. Couldn't put it down!

Without giving away any part of the story (for those of you who would still choose to read it) this book is beyond unrealistic! I didn't heed some of the reviews that said the conversation were fake or something like that - they were! It also needs some editing. All- in - all; I don't think it was worth my time. I would NOT RECOMMEND.

I'm really glad this book was free. The only reason I finished it was to see if it would redeem itself so I could write an honest review. I think this author has issues with going begween historical and contemporary. The dialog almost wpuld have worked in an historical romance. It simply wasn't believable by the end.

I gave this book a four star rating. Here is why...I really enjoyed the idea behind the story. Parents make their kids get married and live in Alaska for four months. Ryan and Beth hate each other and little by little not only do you find out why they hate each other, but they learn to love each other. The four star rating comes because some of the dialogue was rushed and a bit forced. Like the author had to hurry up and write it. Some of it sounded as if a middle schooler had written it. However, with that being said, it is still a cute story.

Boy and girl meet, hate each other, get married then fall in love. Perfect story for a rainy day.

This was cute. Kind of. It seemed like the dialogue was fake and unbelievable at times.

Not what I am used to reading. I like my books SPICY. Appropriate for younger readers. All in all it was interesting after I got into the book. In the beginning it felt like it was written for teens.

Usually I really like this author. I have read several of her books & liked them very much. I did not enjoy this one because it was slow moving & mostly boring. I would not reccomend it, but would suggest you try her other books.
