I am an absolute fan. I counted down the days til this book and I feel like maybe I expected too much... but this book fell short. After reading "Call me Irresistible" I just knew this one would be awesome. I found myself more interested in the side characters stories like Bree & Mike, Temple & Max, and even wanted there to be someone for Kristi.
