Plot (Goodreads Summary):
Agreeing to go to a wedding with a guy she gets stuck with in an elevator is something Alexa Monroe wouldn’t normally do. But there’s something about Drew Nichols that’s too hard to resist. On the eve of his ex’s wedding festivities, Drew is minus a plus one. Until a power outage strands him with the perfect candidate for a fake girlfriend… After Alexa and Drew have more fun than they ever thought possible, Drew has to fly back to Los Angeles and his job as a pediatric surgeon, and Alexa heads home to Berkeley, where she’s the mayor’s chief of staff. Too bad they can’t stop thinking about the other… They’re just two high-powered professionals on a collision course toward the long distance dating disaster of the century–or closing the gap between what they think they need and what they truly want…
First off, Alexa is awesome and Drew is an idiot. Well, he was until the end. The relationship between them throughout the book is because of miscommunication. The Epilogue gives the answer to my question: Did they still have communication problems? The answer is no. I love that Jasmine Guillory saw the issue and fixed it. Other than that, the entire time they were together was heart warming.
The secondary characters! I called all of their relationships. It was very subtle but very cute.
The only issue I had with this book was its placement. The location was in California. This is not the time nor the place to express my feelings about California, but I will say that I have multiple issues with it.
And I didn’t think that what Drew did to Molly was as bad as they made it out to be. Guys get fearful about commitment all the time. Though I do understand why people were so upset with Drew because of the birthday situation. See, idiot.
I’m starting school on Tuesday so that might be why I am late on my reviews in the future. The school system in California is so different and worse from Arizona. Okay, I’ll stop with California now. No offense to my California readers, I just didn’t like it there. If you want to know my reasons for not liking it, you should read my book, “Broken Borders”, on Wattpad (@Danielle_Crone). I have been trying to cut back on how long my reviews are and this is about the length I want to go with.
Love you all ♡
