Genre: New Adult Romance
Actual Rating: 3 stars
I initially picked up this book because of the cover. I am a cover-lover and if a book looks great on the outside I am more likely to pick it up. I know, I know. You shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but how can anyone resist something so pretty? Anyway, aside from the cover, this was a decent book. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it either. One of the main reasons why I couldn't love it is because it is SO SLOW. This book is specified as a romance, but the romance was almost non existent. Sure, there was some flirting going on but how these two came together and acquired feelings for one another despite not being around each other much didn't make sense. Especially considering how much she liked this guy! Secondly, the heroine is a new lawyer and she was so immature. She reminded me of a love sick puppy who should have been in high school rather than a collage graduate. It was just weird. Now, the book isn't all that bad and it did have redeeming qualities. Her job for example is pretty cool. The author clearly did her work when it comes to what kind of work new lawyers do. On top of this, I really liked the detail that the author used when it came to her kickboxing class. I found that to be very interesting.
Other than all this, I liked the book, but didn't love it. I wish the romance was much more apparent throughout the story rather than just following the heroine through her work. This makes it feel more like a chick lit than a romance.
