3.5 starsRuthie has quickly worked her way up the ranks to be positioned as one of my favorite contemporary romance authors. As such, I always have a higher expectation when reading one of her books. Alas, that may have been a downfall in this book. While, by the end, I enjoyed this, the beginning had me uncertain. I didn't love Mandy. She came off as selfish and, to be honest, a little bitchy. However, the more I got into it, the more I was able to enjoy. And I loved the ending and everything that led up to it. Especially when Mandy stood up for herself and what she wanted.In the end, this was another solid read from Ruthie, though definitely not one of my favorites.
