“I’m going to fight to prove to you that this is real. That I’m not going anywhere and that what I feel for you isn’t going to change. And then someday – maybe not any time soon, but one day – I’m going to tell you that you, Kate Brooks, are the love of my life, and you won’t have any doubt that it’s true.”

Review

Trying to come up with a good review for this book was a bit more complicated than how it was for me with other books. The thing is, it was difficult for me to decide just what to rate the book. Eventually, I settled for four red hearts.

While the first parts of the book annoyed the hell out of me, I was quick to realize that this was written on Drew’s POV. Yes, that jerk who never rides a roller coaster twice, who never brings a girl to his place (although that is actually logical), who has an annoying come back and always with something to say about everything, and who quickly jumps to conclusions even before clarifying things with other people.

Yep. This book is on his POV, so what else shoul I expect, right? I read some reviews on Goodreads that were negative because they felt like this book was mysoginistic and rattled this feminist side. Unfortunately, I’m not one of those people. See, I understood just what Drew was. That was all before Kate. And that right there is what made me decide on rating the book a four.

I loved the fact that the difference in Drew was so tangible, you could almost touch it. He did not have a personality overhaul. He had a change of perspective. This guy, who we would very gladly label as an arrogant loser was now the one who was in pursuit of a girl, one who gave him a hard time, one who made his victory worth all those things he went through.

Kate was described as a hot chick with great voice and interesting mind. She was the only one who could go into a head-to-head battle with Drew. I liked her. I liked her loyalty to Billy, even if they were no longer in love. I like that she knew herself and what she wanted out of life. There was not a room for confusion with her. She was engaged, but when they broke up, she moved on. She realized she was in love with Drew, so she worked things out with Billy when he put on the show to try to get her back.

The only misunderstanding was on Drew’s side and all because he’s a jerk. However, he’s a jerk many of us have come to like and root for. I enjoyed reading about his efforts in winning Kate back. The best thing he ever said in the whole book was the one about The Notebook. That’s when I believed that he has learned his lesson.

All in all, this book wasn’t as funny as some of my favorite romcoms, but it was still hilarious. It was a great ride through and though, and I’m looking forward to the next books in this series.

“I gaze at her eyes. The way she’s looking at me…it’s just like she did after our shower yesterday. Like she’s giving me something – a gift. That’s just for me. Only for me. And it’s her. Because she trusts me, has faith in me, believes in me. And you know what? I don’t want Kate to ever look at me any other way.”
