The story line was very good though similar to one or two I've read by other authors, you know, girl down in dumps, jets off abroad to visit friend, begins exciting new life etc etc.
I liked Jane and Alex but strangely didn't quite take to Michael, too much moodiness, not enough humour and fun. The ending was far too abrupt and we really didn't get to the bottom of Michael's anger issues which Jane seemed to too easily forget, thought they'd been such a deal breaker with her.
I like the writing style and because of that and wanting to know what happens with Alex I've just downloaded Fighting Love.
Enjoyable book, glad I downloaded it becuase it's introduced me to another author I've not come across.
However, I cannot stress highly enough the atrocious grammatical and spelling mistakes continuously used throughout this novel; the author seems to be entirely unaware of the correct usage of 'you're' and 'your', as well as lacking basic grammatical grounding. There is little use of speech marks and I just constantly found myself craving to get out my red pen and correct every detail. I would go so far as to say that there was not a single sentence that was entirely correct; most disappointing!
I concede that I was reading this on kindle, and it may be that the basic grammar was lost in translation to the digital age, but seriously? The wrong 'your'? What harm would a quick spell check do?
Whilst the story was engaging, if a bit far fetched, and I will admit I found myself laughing out loud in some bits (ie the hammock scene') the lack of proof reading took away from the experience and I was left feeling very dissatisfied.
Call me a grammar fiend if you will, but it seems to me that a book lacking in the basic form of English is a sorry state of affairs!
The storyline itself was entertaining and the characters easy to warm to. It was predictable, but it never claimed not to be so it's not really a fault. The lead character, Jane, is instantly likeable as are the Hollywood characters she meets along the way. I think the only criticism I have, besides the punctuation and grammar, is that it was too short. There seems to be so much more to these characters that wasn't told.
I do recommend this book because it is an enjoyable book but the writer should really think about a re-print to get the errors corrected.
