My Review...

This book was totally what I needed. I had just put a book down with a DNF and I needed something to hook me in. This book swallowed me in probably due to Dani's kindle and book boyfriend obsession which I also have. :)

First we have Daniela (Dani) who has had her heart ripped out too many times so falls into the safe land of fiction. Well until her friends give her a well needed intervention

Enter Liam one smoking hot fireman who also has a guarded heart but sees the potential in Dani

Re-Enter Rick or I like to call him Douchenozzle (I bet you can't guess that I may be Team Liam).  Rick realizes that his life is pretty empty and is only filled with sex, booze and partying. He starts to regret his decison of tossing Dani to the curb and wants her back and will due ANYTHING to get her.

Liam and Dani have a great connection and Liam's love is so sweet and supportive and all encompassing.

"...I'm just me, but I'm yours.  All of me is yours.  My heart, everything, all of it, yours...I love you, Daniela Ruiz."

It is amazing what our subconscious will due to protect our hearts after we have been hurt. For Dani she gets in denial and sees things with rose colored glasses.  This tends to confuse her reality which ends up kicking her in the ass but she gets a harsh bitch slap of reality and is finally able to see something that was so beautiful and so perfect, which was right in front of her the whole time.  It wasn't until Dani realized that she deserved this reality that she was able to truly except it.

"This isn't one of your novels. I'm not some book boyfriend who overlooks everything in the name of love, and we ride off into the sunset like nothing happened."

This dose of reality is exactly what Dani needed to fight for what she deserves and what she needs and wants.

Super Cute story and Can't wait to read the next one. I am not sure if it will be a contunation of this story or a book featuring Macy or Candace or Madison.
