I just couldn't get into it. The story was just too saccharine and "cutesy" in places and ridiculous in other parts. It tried to be funny but only resulted in bafflement. Perhaps it's a cultural difference but it just appeared weird.
Hero: Mark is a cynical 30 year old, tall, dark and handsome well-to-do American Political Journalist. He jasn't had sex in almost 2 years because he doesn't find anyone attractive. His doctor thinks he's suffering from stress and recommends he takes a break from the DC Political scene. His family aren't close and argue.
Heroine: Kiki Villanueva - 26 year old teacher, chestnut hair, big brown eyes and very beautiful. She's from Argentina with a warm loving family, parents still in love yada yada yada. Her goal is to get married and it must follow a list that was manifested to her in a dream (she professes to being psychic). She doesn't like politics (she only enjoys reading sweet and fluffy topics), she loves dogs and would like to be married with children. She is saving herself for her husband (although she's previously had boyfriends) but doesn't believe men ought to feel similarly obliged. She is indifferent to people thinking she's weird and makes really odd conversation. She is blasé about starring in a online-dating-video and being interviewed by a cynical ournalist regarding her very first attempt at online dating.
I only got to the page when the interview is being conducted and it's pretty cringe worthy. If she's not drooling over him (or vice versa) then they're suffering differing opinions. The clashes were childish more than "hot" - nothing intense. It was just very immature.
Kiki's family seem nice and although it's a bit too sweet and all candy floss for me - I did like reading about Chris who speaks multiple languages, is culturally aware and seems like a nice guy.
If I have the time to finish this book I may change my mind. But so far it seems to be heading to the "delete" button. If I do read it and it improves will review my score again.
Unlike many kindle books there are no spelling and grammatical mistakes ( is that grammatically correct?) .
The only down side if any is that the characters could have more colour to them. I felt the portrayal of Mark needed a bit more depth, Chris more fire and the Bennetts a little bit more edge perhaps. who knows ,may be in a sequel. Kiki on the other hand was portrayed just perfectly. The one and only line I didn't like is towards the end, his and Chris's plan; MARK NEEDED TO GO TO, HE NEEDED TO GO, HE ABSOLUTELY NEEDED TO GO. It's disappointing he didn't, and that he got off the hook so easily, a twist at the tail would have been great.
Nonetheless, a thoroughly enjoyable lovely little read ,Thank you Nina C.
I also had some bad news today, regarding my lady, who is English, but at present in Ghana. I don't think she is coming home to me.
That left tears in my eyes also, but finishing this great book by Nina Coroba helped a lot, I will investigate more books by Nina while I am still in a soft mood.
I highly recommend this book to all readers, had as**d males like me, softies, romantics, everybody, male or female.
