I FINALLY TOOK A CHANCE ON YOU DREW, AND NOW I'M ALL TANGLED UP IN YOU TOO!!
This is a story that I'm 100% sure I won't forget. The way it's been written is certainly unique. It's in the POV of a really arrogant, sexy and yet somewhat self centered guy. The timeline of the story is admirable too. It's backwards and then it catches up to the present. It's damn cool and refreshing.
I can't get over how straight forward Drew's character is. He is such an ass with a heart. I liked him because maannnn.. he's just so damn funny! All of his thoughts including his little trivias made me snort, smile, laugh out loud or grin an everlasting grin. My rating is actually all based on his character. He's also what I can call a breath of fresh air... in an unconventional way since he's really a mjor jerk most of the time... But oh man, what a lovely jerk... and when he falls in love? HE.FALLS.HARD.
The heroine wasn't all that special to me. She's beautiful, sexy and very hardworking, but she didn't seem to have a striking character to me. However, I admire her resistance to Drew's charm especially near the end. I love it that she didn't make it easy for him. Nuh-uh-uh. He had to work for her.
At the start of his novel, I thought that it was really similar to PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Julie James. I thought that they would go on a full out war against each other then just drop the facade and kiss. I didn't expect them to be friends first... I didn't expect them to be close at all before ending up in the sheets. This is a good thing since I was getting tired of plots wherein lust/love at first sight is the main mojo.
Lemme just say that it's been a long time since I've been amazed by grand gestures at the end of a romantic novel. This one? A PURE HOT DAMN WINNER!!! Why? ohmy!! Just the mere number of grand gestures here made my heart flutter. I mean which gurl in her right state of mind wouldn't be lured by all of his hearts and flower gestures? Plus I dunno why.. but I was really touched by his explanation regarding the house in THE NOTEBOOK
. I couldn't ask for a grander gesture... grander? hmm.. I wonder if there's such a word. haha.
I may just be blabbering here, but it's true that I did love this book. It took me under 4 hours to read this. It's now 12:58 AM in my country and I'm still thinking of Drew. GOTTA SLEEP. MAIN POINT: READ THIS IF YOU WANT TO LAUGH, FALL IN LOVE AND FORGIVE.
P.S. THE NOTEBOOK MAY BE SO GAY....but it doesn't change the fact that we women have been wanting our own Noahs after watching the film.
