She is able to seem strong when
CONFRONTING JACK ABOUT HIS PARENTS BUTJack about his parents but there are moments when she acts childish It was very off puttingThe parents are alright characters but the solution to their issue seems to be easily solved and something that a counselor would have suggested long before they go to this pointThe ending seemed to come out of left field too because we got a lot of Callie s feelings through the book but very little of Jack s There is very few scenes in which he wonders about the relationship he has with Callie and him confronting his feelings about itOverall I liked this book I would read it again in the future but it is ust for a casual read rather than something spectacular Very cute and a good reminder to stop and slow down Sometimes the plot in a romance novel is unbelievable or over the top but that s not always bad Some times the cray cray is so out there the book is fun and enjoyable despite itself See eg Pregnesia Other times even though the plot is out there the underlying emotional conflict and other aspects of the book make for a good read eg Fiona Lowe s Runaway Bride Still other books the plot is ridiculous and the remainder of the book can t make up for it This book falls into the latter category The heroine Callie is the daughter of a single mother who was good friends with the parents of our hero Dr Jack Mitchell When Callie s mother is dying her distant former in lawsCallie s grandparents seek full custody of Callie Neither Callie nor her mother want that Meanwhile Jack s parents are in a world of hurt because their daughter Callie s close friend Lucy drowned They re having problems surviving emotionally but Jack doesn t want to deal with the fall out because he must head out and be an important doctor So what s the best solution in a situation like this why get married of course Bam Why yes that was the sound of my head banging the keyboard So Callie and Jack get married That way the grandparents can t get custody and Lucy will stay in town to watch out for Jack s parents Who aren t informed about the marriage You may ask yourself uestions like if she s old enough to get married why are we worried about
a custody battle involving grandparents who barely know her and who livecustody battle involving grandparents who barely know her and who live way across the country Or why if Jack is *so worried about his parents he doesn t mention their new daughter in law And doesn t it *worried about his parents he doesn t mention their new daughter in law And doesn t it ust a little incestuous between these two given the family history Good uestions Alas no good answers There are aspects of the book that are enjoyable I enjoyed the subplot getting to know Jack s parents and watching them address the long simmering grief But it doesn t save this hot mess So unless you re really up for head scratching you might want to skip this one 25. Ut of Tennessee with his final decree in hand Uh uh Callie isn't letting him off uite so easily Not when she to her utter dismay is finding him so irresistibleIrresistible enough to get him to tie the knot again.

briefly unfortunately the big declaration at the endUnfortunately the big declaration at the end the book AKA the HEA was not believable It ust seemed rushed and like it came out of left field in an effort to tie up the book just seemed rushed and like it came out of left field in an effort to tie up the book the allotted word count What really got me into reading this book was the number of pages and the storyline exactly in that order It was a very strange book and in ways than one First the whole attitude of the bride was too childish and the groom was actually liking it The love part was also rubbish in the sense that not all relationships develop on the basis of hateCan we be realistic hereMoreover the whole Lucy fiasco was DYA (1933-1939) (Libros sobre el Opus Dei) just plain rubbish Who does that That was my first time reading about people dealing with a grave situation in such an unsophisticated manner No real pain of loss thereThe aspects regarding there marriage were tangible but that was that What they did with it wasust plain stupidity He did run away yet not to the point of never coming back And here I thought doctors were hot stuff 3 StarsFull review coming soon I m not uite sure how to classify this book It had moments of high hilarity and near tear Big Book of AA All 12 Steps Understand and Complete One Step At A Time in Recovery with Alcoholics Anonymous 12 of 12 Books jerking sadness The hero was a realerk in the beginning of the story and took his own time about finding his redemption The heroine wasn t that great a prize either And yet I really enjoyed reading it Their attempts to maneuver around and manipulate each other were fun and neither hero nor heroine was a bad person They had good hearts and good intentions mostly The heroine is determined to get the hero to come home and deal with his parents who have not yet dealt not really with the drowning death of his sister right before he left for med school He married the heroine his sister s best friend so she could ignore her grandparents threat to take her from her dying mother and stay near his parents Now she has maneuvered him into coming to spend time with his parents and coincidentally get a divorce It sounds convoluted and kinda goofy and it is But it s also fun and a good read I liked it So cute and funny I love the scene where they have to choose a reason to get divorced I seriously LMAO I love the this type of plot where the couple are married and then fall in love Don t worry there is a HEAWriting 4 starsCharacters 4 starsHot scenes nothing explicit but hinted A fun uick read with appealing characters strong writing and deft plotting Gaines backstory for the marriage is a bit iffy but it gets things on track for a satisfying process of reunion The hero.

S selfishness related emotional myopia got annoying but that was addressed and
ultimately resolved The heroine maybe lacks depth in terms of vulnerability theresolved The heroine maybe lacks depth in terms of vulnerability the kind of tells us and her where her shortcomings are in one painful conversation but for most of the rest of the time she s "THE STANDARD SORT OF SASSY INDEPENDENT MINDED HEROINE THE "standard sort of sassy independent minded heroine The dialogue and skillful handling of emotional development made this an enjoyable and compelling handling of emotional development made this an enjoyable and compelling my only complaints are that the ending comes too fast and easy and the heroine s moment of realization of being in love feels artificially placed but those choices make the novel work and I m willing to forgive them Dr Jack Mitchell married his wife eight years ago to save her from a frightening custody battle before leaving to pursue his career overseas Now he s back ready to get a divorce and move on with his life Callie was New Writing, New Approaches (African Literature Today, Vol. 12) just a shy schoolgirl when they married but now she s grown up so much that he doesn t even recognize her literally He thinks that Callie will make this easy but she isn t letting him of the hook His family needs him and she isn t going to let him go until he spends some time with his parents As the days pass the attraction between them grows and Callie finds it isn tust his parents that want him to stick around this timeI liked this book because the premise is a little funny and kinda crazy However I didn t like a lot of the book tooWhat I did like were the moments when the book focused on the parent s relationship showing each side dealing with the grief they felt when their daughter died even though it was so long ago There were times when the focus seemed too much on the parents and not on our leads but they were still enjoyable to readI also liked when Jack and Callie would argue It sounds strange as this is a romance novel but I felt like the two connected very well during those moments I also liked it because the way they fought at times was very subtle digs at the other instead of straight up yelling at each other What I found that I didn t like was the characters themselves Jack is a neurosurgeon working in London He takes his career very seriously My issue is that he is able to interact with his patients very well you see some of it in the book but when it comes to Callie or his parents it s like he forgot how to talk to normal people He was constantly thinking about medical issues that it might be rather than emotional and Callie was calling him out on it I could see it the first time maybe even the second but after a while it felt like a running Culture and Development in Africa (Comparative Studies in African/Caribbean Literature Series) joke throughout the book and I felt that it didn t seem realistic Callie was another issue She seems as though she has it all together but she isn t sure if she wants to be a florist or flip houses. Chell was a gawky schoolgirl when Jack rescued her from a nasty family situation But that's no excuse for the man not to recognize his own wifeAnd now the gorgeous neurosurgeon thinks he's going to hightail it
