I'll start off by saying that before I read this book, I was in a reading funk. I could not bring myself to read anything, despite the fact that my long list of books to read just keeps getting longer and longer. I didn't expect this book to bring me out of my funk. In fact, if I'm being honest, I expected to be bored by it, like I get bored watching those dating shows on TV.
But I was wrong. Not only did this book bring me out of that lag phase I was experiencing, but it gave me renewed will to read books.
Accept this Dandelion shows us a strong female protagonist that isn't afraid of showing who she is, and has a take it or leave it attitude. I liked that a lot because many romance books that I've read in the past feature protagonists that change a part of who they are to please their potential partner.
Was this story predictable at times? Yes. But that didn't stop me from reading it. Was it an enjoyable read? Certainly. However, it did feel a little rushed at times, and I wish it could have been a little more detailed and drawn out.
Overall, I liked the story and read it in two hours. It is a light, funny read and I award it 4 Platypires.
