This is the second Luanne Mclane book I have read the first being Dancing Shoes.... I liked that one although there was something about it that bugged me and I couldn't get my finger on it. With this one I figured it out. While I liked the Southern girl references, and it was refreshing to have characters, especially the hero not being a millionaire, Jamie Lee's sometimes immature behavior and words after awhile really bug me. "My boobies"?!! I mean, come on---she is supposed to be 26 years old, not arrested at 13. I do have to agree that the romantic "hero" Griff is very hard to understand and to like. I spent more time being mad at him especially after tearing up when Jamie reveals her lifelong feelings for him but convinces him to leave. I did like Parker better but he is a shell of a person too. In summary, the first person perspective doesn't bother me so much, but in both of these books Luanne doesn't get us into the minds of the men and that is sadly lacking. Other authors do it much better. Perhaps she can shift back and forth between male and female characters in the first person. I am not sure I am going to read any more of her books--except through the library. They are pleasant but not noteworthy.
