What I liked: This is an adorable romance. This is the type of contemporary romance that reminds me why I liked to read contemporary romance. There is some humor, some suspense, some heat, and some great supporting characters. Gabi is one of those characters you just love instantly. Hunter is the guy you hate to love. He is such an egomaniacal jerk in the beginning and you just want Gabi to punch him. However, because the author does an amazing job with character development, you do grow to love him and its genuine.
If you are looking for a contemporary romance with no cheating, or threesomes, or college age angst this is the perfect book. Books like this remind me why I love contemporary romance so much.
This is the first book I have read by Catherine Bybee, so yes you can read it as a stand alone. However, I will be getting every book in the series because I love her writing and plot and characters. Seriously, if you like Nora Roberts, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Julie James, and Rachel Gibson you will love these books.
