I realize that there would be no story if both the main characters are healthy well-adjusted people who are fully ready for a relationship but I am really tired of heroines who have zero self-esteem and constantly second guess the fact that a man is into them. The tired cliche of shutting the other person out before they can hurt you is...well...tired. There really wasn't much of a story to begin with as the setup is ludicrous. This woman is supposed to be an intelligent human resources manager and yet thinks it's a feasible plan to try to blackmail the owner of the company she works for into going to a family wedding? I'm pretty sure that Days of Our Lives passed on that story line for being too crazy.
The sex scenes were plentiful but full of words like rod and feminine center. To top it off the narrators were the final straw. The male narrator wasn't too bad, though with a penchant for overly dramatic intonation but the female narrator really killed it for me. I just have a hard time taking a story seriously with the dramatic emphasis on even the most mundane sentences. There was the occasional bright spot (her family was a hoot) but this really wasn't for me. There really felt like there was no true beginning, middle, and end of the story. It just sort of rambled along.

I quite enjoyed this book, I liked that Kimbra was a little insecure about somethings but forceful about others.
I like that Duncan is a playboy a dawg if you will but he saw something in Kimbra right from the beginning. He kept his eye on her.
I very much enjoyed the fake relationship and how it all came to be. The family omg that was FUNNY. I mean come on grandma was the freaking bomb!
Overall I liked narration; I did think Samantha’s voice was a bit to mature for Kimbra. I guess I just saw Kimbra as a little younger and not so sure of herself as Samantha portrayed her.
