In my opinion, this book was not written very well, but was still enjoyable. The plot was not very deep, but it was cute enough to want to read all the way through. I would suggest reading this book if you like romance, but if you want something deep, this isn't the book for you.

This book was ok.

Lets put it simple: it was OK. OK characters, plot that was kinda cheesy and predictable, and not wholly satisfying. However, it was still somewhat enjoyable.

Even though it was kinda predictable, i still loved reading it! Is there a sequel to it? If anyone knows, could they please tell me, i'm dying to find out! you shouldn't criticize the book or the author just cause you didn't enjoy it though. that would be just mean.

My daughter loved this book! Sure, it was sort of predictable but in all she enjoyed it and honestly I don't think someone should criticize the author or the book because you probably counldn't write this well. But after reading this book, she just HAD to get the next book Wishful Thinking and it helped her immensely with her story writing.
