My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I am all for an angst filled love triangle. You know the kind filled with ex lovers and those wannabes who just seem to get in the way. Well, some of the elements are there but while reading I didn't get the scorch factor I was looking for.
So, small town girl Samantha (an aspiring pastry chef) finds herself having to make a choice between two very different guys. Should the small town girl choose the rudderless rocker or the soon to be lawyer? They all have a similar troubled past but as I go along the destination of the relationships seemed to be simple/straightforward. You know, the girl recognizes the good guy and proceeds with the relationship with that character. Well, that isn't the case here and I wish it had been. The reason, the story is missing a definite scorch factor. There isn't any heat jumping off the pages. You know that something about the book or characters that make the reader never want to put the book down. Though, Josh the lawyer's character is endearing, there isn't anything drool worthy about him ... yet. As for Hawke, I didn't get any heat off of him as well.
Toward the end of this installment I was definitely Team Josh (yep using some Twilight ish) and I just wanted to get back to his family drama. So, hopefully the next installment is about Josh and his family issues. Overall rating is 3.25.
