Posey Osterhagen can't complain. She owns a successful architectural salvaging company, she's surrounded by her lovable, if off-center, family and she has a boyfriend—sort of. Still, something's missing. Something tall, brooding and criminally good-looking…something like Liam Murphy.
When Posey was sixteen, the bad boy of Bellsford, New Hampshire, broke her heart. But now he's back, sending Posey's traitorous schoolgirl heart into overdrive once again. She should be giving him a wide berth, but it seems fate has other ideas….

What I Thought…

I really enjoy Kristan Higgin’s books, and this one is no exception.  I absolutely loved Posey.  She was quirky (she owns a salvage company, how cool is that?) and fun.  She’s the kind of girl I would want to be friends with.  You get a glimpse of her teenage years, which were not so great, and that helps to understand her actions in the present.  Her family is crazy and loveable at the same time.  They want what’s best for Posey, but they are a little too “helpful.”

I liked Liam mostly because he wasn’t the perfect guy that you so often find in chick lit books.  He struggles with his feelings over his deceased wife and he is completely, way over the top, overprotective of his daughter.

I didn’t enjoy was cousin Gretchen. I understand she was needed to provide some “conflict” but she drove me crazy!   The only other thing that really bothered me was Liam’s OCD.  It didn’t really get in the way of the story but it didn’t really add to it either.

Overall it was a quick fun read.

    I happen to love chick lit, but I’ve been reading it for so long now that I am very choosy. I now only read a handful of chick lit authors because I know they won’t dissapoint.

    I wanna read this now! I don’t usually go for chick lit, but this sounds like one I would really enjoy. Thanks for the review! :)

      If you don’t usually read chick lit Kristan Higgins is a good place to start. I’ve loved all her books except one, and even that one was good, it just wasn’t great.
