I ’ ll be honest, it took me a while to warm up to this story and especially to this main character, but I ended up enjoying this one for the most part.
But, sadly, it is no The Hating Game, or at least it wasn ’ t for me.This story stars Darcy Barrett who is a wedding photographer who is currently working at a bar, while also living in a mansio that her mother left to her and her twin brothers, Gabe, after she passed away.
Plus, the house that was left to Darcy and Jamie desperately needs to be completely remodeled.
And one night when Darcy is coming home from work at the bar, she realizes that the contractor on the remodeling job is none other that her and Gavin ’ s best friend, Tommy. Who also is the one guy who has been unable to get under Darcy ’ s throat and into her heart, except when she had the pportunity to finally have him, she completely blew it, and now he is engaged to someone else.
Okay, now that we have the basic premise out of the ay, I want to talk a little bit more about Darcy and why she was the main reason I didn ’ t njoy this story for the irst fifty perfect.
Next, Darcy is living with a very serious chronic heart condition, which she completely ignores throughout most of the novel.
You all know my brother is my best friend in this ntire world and I just don ’ t really enjoy seeing not great sibling bonds in stories, even though the story constantly tries to make you feel like they at least had a ood relationship for most their lives.
Especially since Darcy and Jamie ’ s dynamic was so eird and I felt like I was missing so much.
Like, I think it would have improved this book so much.Oh my gosh, I sound so negative, but I promise I did end up enjoying this read.
