Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: New Adult, Romance
My first book by this author, but I’m a sucker for second chance romance so looked forward to reading this.
It was a fun read, Maureen and Smith such lovely people. There were a few “smile” moments but also some that felt a little forced, and as though they were put in just to put the characters in the right place to do or say something, and didn’t quite feel natural. Still, I was rooting for them to finally realise that they were in love. They were perfect for each other and everyone around them could see it, but they both were so hung up on this “only see each other as friends” thing. I’m sure that happens a lot, we all are cautious sometimes about risking what we have already if we get it wrong. I could see why they both felt that way, helped of course by the dual POV, something I always enjoy. I do like to understand from the characters themselves and what they are feeling.
Overall it was a sweet read, a fun one but it didn’t quite have enough drama in for me, and I missed that. I do need the big breakup, the things that make the romance veer off track, the stuff that makes me feel choked up and here it never really felt that way. Its the first in a series and yet the way some of the other characters got together, and the issues they’d had made me wonder at first if I’d missed a couple of books – there certainly seemed potential for others from those people and their journey to romance.
Stars: three, its a fun read, a good book but a little lacking in drama and conflict for me.

I fell in love with Burton all over again!
Maureen and Smith have sparks of chemistry all over the place. This story wrapped me all up, in, and around the characters. I had so much fun getting inside their heads, reading their inner dialogue, and seeing the struggles they each had with their feelings. I couldn't help myself, and had to literally laugh out loud throughout the book. This was both fun to read, and made me smile as my heart smiled at the sweet and tender moments. The steamy moments made me want to fan myself just a little. I absolutely loved this book, and couldn't put it down from the moment I started it.

Maureen really hit home with me since I had the same situation with my now husband. She is oblivious to Smith’s feelings because she thinks there is no way that incredibly hot guy could care about her even though it is obvious to everyone around her that he did.
Maureen was naive and felt she wasn’t worthy for anyone especially someone like Smith, she thought she was forever friend-zoned. Sometimes we need someone to show us that we are worthy. Don’t worry, Maureen was never whiny and she is not weak by any sense. She has a veterinary practice, strong relationships with family and friends but she was unlucky in love. I loved how the book went back to show Smith and Maureen in college too and we got to see the feeling develop.
Smith and Maureenare both chicken s***s about admitting their interest in one another ( to each other) until late in the book. You almost wonder if they deserve each other.
Although there's an excruciating wait, they finally fess up and enjoy one another sexually.
Okay so this is the second book by Tawdra Kandle that I have read. There where things about it I liked and some that I didn't. I had a really hard time rating this book. While I really liked Mrs. Kandle's writing style, almost all of the characters, the town the book is set in, the plot concept, I didn't like the heroine Maureen. I didn't hate her or anything. I just found her weak, cowardly, insecure, and super immature. I felt bad for her really, but I didn't connect to her at all. The things she did in the book drove me crazy. The fact that in college after being in love with Smith for years, she goes to tell him her feelings at a party where she knew he went with a date, and when she sees some girl kiss him she runs off and gives away her virginity to a man she didn't even know the name of is just one of the things she did that had me cringing. I mean come on. Then years later as a 30 year old woman she dates a man she feels nothing for, just uses poor Tim because she thinks Smith just wants to be friends. I loved the hero Smith. Although I didn't really understand him waiting to tell her how he felt. I get everyone was telling him to let her date poor stupid Tim and woo her but really it was stupid advice if you ask me. I felt he should have just been honest. All the relationship angst was uncalled for. If they would have just pulled their heads out of their butts and been truthful. Smith's wooing was weak at best and if I was Maureen I would have been confused too. He wasn't clear at all so it wasn't all her fault. That being said honestly I didn't really feel like I was reading a romance. They didn't really have anything going at all until almost the end. My kindle read 82% when Smith finally told Maureen that he loved her and kissed her. After all that snail's pace slow build up they make love and then she is back to doubting and I am staring at my kindle going are you kidding me? Then they have a heart to heart where he tells her he real does love her didn't feel sorry for her and all is well the end at 94%. That's it all that super long waiting and barely a glimpse of a HEA. I felt cheated. I was left shaking my head. I didn't feel any of their relationship if that is what you call what they had. So there is my problem. I liked all the others, Smith, and everything that happened in the book but their relationship parts which wasn't really much anyways. I couldn't decide if I should give it a 2 or 3 star. I went with 2.5 stars and I rounded up, because I really did like the writing style and the way everyone talked and felt down to earth and real. I really kinda want to know more about the others. I think maybe just Maureen wasn't my kind of girl. I plan on giving this author another chance and reading one of the other couples story. Meghan and Sam maybe?
