This book is filled with laugh out loud moments, along with a few head shaking ones. Romantic, sexy, witty, Rom-Com makes for a fun and action packed read. There are some storyline issues that I would prefer be filled (don’t over think them to hard) but over it is it a delightful read. The story and book had a very Jennifer Cruise feel to it. Despite the number of times I found myself laughing or shaking my head this book did have dimension. Siskind did an amazing job balancing the heavy and the humorous, making her characters come to life. Plus whom doesn’t love a good Elvis impersonator!
This was a solid 4/5 read for me. I look forward to checking out future offerings from Siskind.
