Not many people know that I, Eevie Lawson, have a problem. An addiction to romance novels. I eat them for breakfast. I hide it the best I can, but I need them to breathe. It's how I cope.
I've had a swag of book boyfriends, but now that I'm free from the responsibility of caring for my three younger brothers, it's time to find one in the flesh.
In real life, no girl meets their hero on page one, or even at the end of chapter one. I should know.
My journey is real. It's not perfect, and it sure as hell isn't easy-but the fight for something worthwhile never is.

The blurb was not exactly fitting for the content of the book. Aiden was the perfect book boyfriend. He really was. I love him, his character, even his mother. Unfortunately, we had to suffer through Jon ans Alex to get there. It took so long to get back to Aiden after we initially met him that I wasn't even sure that it was going to happen. I'm all about going through the bad to get to the good, but Jon never should have happened. Had Eevie listened to her gut and/or posessed a backbone, things would have gone a little differently for her life. The "woe is me" attitude from Eevie really began to bother me very early on, and she never seemed to oversome it. There were many times in the story where her strength is admired by others, but I just never saw it. What I saw was an insecure 2o year old with low self esteem that didn't know how to stand up for herself and let others use and manipulate her to a certain extent. While taking over the household duties when her mother was ill is admirable, you don't come away from helping care for younger siblings without battle scars and a lot more confidence in the real world than Eevie portrayed. I had very little respect for the female lead and would not have finished this book if it were not in the middle of an anthology. This clearly was not a book for me, but I hope that others will enjoy it.
3.5 stars This book was a slow starter for me. While I appreciated all of the Eevie background I would’ve liked it to be more woven throughout the story. Another thought is for Eevie to be such a big reader and have such a vivid imagination she comes across as too naive. Jon- what kind of BFF is he?? He was only around until it no longer worked for him. His issues and reaction were just too awkward. Alex- YUCK! That is all Love her roomie and best friend. Then we get to Aidan. Funny, smart, talented and hot… and oh did I mention HOT? Once they stop dancing around each other they are incredible. The entire first half was neither of them being ready for the other. There is a good amount of character growth as well as personal strength demonstrated through this story. Looking forward to Spike and definitely more Aidan :)
I must admit I had abit of a love hate relationship with Evie, I sympathised for her predicament of not feeling sexual feelings for her best friend Jon and feeling trapped between potentially losing her best friend or staying somewhere she didn't want to be, but I feel she handled the exit from their relationship very badly and the scene at the end when she gloats that she is now with Aiden in front of Jon rather unnecessary. Apart from those two judgement errors on her part I liked the growing interactions between her and Aiden that developed into a sweet story. The writing was good and concise and the author captured my attention throughout. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
