It’s been a while since I picked up a romance novel and when I picked this one up I wasn’t 100% sure on what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. I have to be in the mood for a romance because usually I’m not in the mood for all the fluff and sappiness and bleugh. I’m definitely more of an action and adventure type of gal. But this wasn’t too bad.
‘When Noah Wilson first encounters the quirky, opinionated and very beautiful Angel Fallon, his world is turned upside down. It’s clear she’s not his normal type, but Noah can’t stop thinking about her—which doesn’t bode well for the blind date he’s already late for. Convinced by his friend (and self-professed dating expert) Marlon that thirteen dates is all you need to fall in love, Noah decides to give it a try with Angel. They should be incompatible: she’s impulsive and he’s a planner; he wants to settle down and she doesn’t ‘do’ relationships—or anything, for that matter—the way Noah is used to. But there’s something about Angel, and Noah can’t shake the idea that all they need is twelve more dates. Despite some near-disasters involving rock climbing, saddle sores and jellied eels, it seems his plan may actually work. But even if they do reach the magic number, can that really mean they’ll just fall into their happily-ever-after?’
Truth be told, I downloaded this while I was in hospital because I wanted something that wasn’t too heavy and was going to be a quick and easy read. Which is exactly what it is. It took me maybe two days to finish it, but then I find that it never takes me too long to make it through a romance book. It’s really easy to follow and I was easily able to put it down throughout the day and pick it back up not forgetting what was happening. It’s a very sweet book with some interesting turns you don’t really see coming however I was quite disappointed with the ending. Maybe it’s because I’m not really into the whole overly happy, sappy ending but I just couldn’t help but stare at the last page in a bit of disbelief that that was the end of the book. For someone who loves romances, I wouldn’t say it’s the best I’ve ever read but I didn’t hate it. I needed something to kill some time and something that was going to be a quick and easy read which is what it was so if that’s what you’re looking for then this might just be the book for you.
