UNITED INDIE BOOK BLOG REVIEW
RATING: 4 STARS
This was a so-so book for me. Mainly PG-13 which is fine. I found the storyline needed a better flow as the writer seemed to stretch the story needing to fill the space to make it a novel. It would have been fine as a novella or shorter book. The premise of the story was a woman who had many heartaches fearing being hurt again by opening herself up but it felt like enough already. There were far too many obstacles in place that prevented the truth coming out to finalize the love between the characters. The story had a "Cyrano deBergrac" feel to it from today's perspective of using texting by Lexie as her boss Sylvia to woo a guy, Matt, her boss met at the gym, who quotes English literary sources. Lexie who is a English major is persuaded by Sylvie to text Matt for her in the hopes of setting up a date. That is when the story unfolds.
