review 1: Cute, fun, clean read! I have started several books in a row that I haven't finished because of unexpected content and/or complete boredom! So it was fun to actually read an entire book and enjoy it!Raina is a hopeless romantic who is pretty clueless about guys in real life (I totally related to her!). She has a roommate, Vicki who is engaged and planning her wedding. But Vicki is never too busy to meddle in Raina's love life. Raina meets Todd on a blind date set up by her sister. Then Steve, an old friend of Raina's from high school moves into their apartment complex and they start hanging out again.Not only does Vicki encourage her to pursue Todd and Steve, but she also "gifts" Raina a night of speed dating. The guys she meets speed dating are pitifully funny... while I ... morenever did speed dating (I don't think it even existed back in my dating days) I had my share of "interesting" blind dates and I met my share of "interesting" guys while dancing.Out of all the guys that Vicki throws in Raina's path, it's obvious from the start who Raina should be with - it just takes her a while to figure it out! In the meantime, it's fun to watch Steve's and Raina's friendship develop!Content: Very clean, no language!
review 2: This is more or less the story of Raina, a recent college graduate who resists looking for love until it finds her. I admit I would not have picked this book up had I judged it purely on the basis of the back cover blurb. And while it could have used a little tightening here and there, overall it was a good read. The dialogue was especially good; I could hear all the voices in my head. There were a few bits that felt curiously omitted (Dan never said "trippin'", Vicki's maiden name was never mentioned) but all in all I enjoyed it. less

I got so into this book, It was very cute and wonderful to read. She really puts you into her life.
Slightly predictable story, but it has some really funny scenes. Fun read from a local writer.
I found this to be a cute, fun, light read. Great for summertime.
Well written, just not my favorite genre.
