I think this books was awesome, it was hilarious and smart and it made me smile and laugh a lot, and even get a little bit emotional.
My first thought on the book were a little bit confusing though. I thought we had a strong lead female, with a lot of character and complexity, but a little too vengeful? That thing of the beginning was a little bit too much, but then I remembered this is a comedy and it was everything ok. Also, Sydney's fun as hell and I like her way of thinking.
Gray was totally loveable, smart and hot and a little bit wicked when needed to be. The chemistry between the two lead characters was amazing and I was really digging it.
I need to mention the relationship between Syd and her brother, Jack. It was a complex one, yet I loved it. They love each other and to hear the stories of them as children made me smile and maybe my eyes were shining a bit too much here.
I think the ending was perfect and I wish this was a series 'cause I'd love to know more about Jack, Fernando an Chance, they were super fun characters.
So this was a great book, a light reading but a smart one too, with witty characters and fun love story.
