“…this sounded like a perfect plot for what I like!  Sadly, I think it fell short somewhere along the execution.”
~ Under the Covers

I was anticipating this book because this series always delivers a fun read.  I’ve enjoyed some more than others but I still look forward to reading them.  This one seemed to have a premise that would be perfect for me.  The hero is a chef and owns a restaurant in NYC.  The heroine is a model.  They are both attending the wedding of their friends in Florida and due to a storm their flight is cancelled and they are forced to rent a car and drive from NY to Florida.  I mean, this sounded like a perfect plot for what I like!  Sadly, I think it fell short somewhere along the execution.

At first, I was all over it.  But then quickly I started to see things I didn’t like mixed in with some I liked.  Like how the hero would come across quite judgy at times and it would throw me off completely my reading mojo.  And then as I was expecting to care for the heroine because she is dealing with some personal issues as well, I just never did connect with her and didn’t care for her predicament.  And that made me feel bad because she deals with the start of an eating disorder and I wanted to empathetic but I just didn’t care for her in general one way or another.

Then there’s the romance.  I will be the first to admit that I struggle with insta love in general.  And granted, you may say this isn’t insta love because they start off as enemies.  But in the span of seven days (driving to Florida and the wedding) these two make some HUGE life changing decisions that I just couldn’t wrap my head around.  These may be things that ring true for others, but for me, I just couldn’t see it.  Add to that the fact that I found the big reconciliation moment to be extremely selfish on their part on how it takes over someone else’s big event.  I just didn’t care for any of that!

There are still some things about this story that were nice and kept me from DNF’ing the book.  But in the end, it wasn’t enough to make me love the book.
