Now, Max was an entirely different story. Where Jenna had no personality, he had an excess of one. He probably had enough for them to share. Max was funny, caring, and heartfelt. He was perfect... in some ways almost too much so. He got ALL the best lines, and Jenna got the easy road of just agreeing with him. More than once, I found myself wondering what he saw in her. Max is the one aspect of this book that really saved this story.
I did enjoy the dynamic with Jenna's friends and with Max's family. Each of the supporting characters were well done and had flair. They were interesting. The storyline itself was cute and was a refreshing twist on on the "rich businessman meets innocent girl who is more beautiful than she realizes" theme that many romances have tended toward as of late.
As a final note, although I do see that this book has an editor, it needs a better one. Examples:
"Then...unexpecdetly.....I saw Luke's face in my mind."
on the very next page came:
"We were all busy with own lives"
And that was in the beginning of the book. The typos and errors continued like that throughout the entire thing and many times I had to stop to try to translate, which removed me from the story. I almost quit reading after Chapter 3, because it was starting to feel like too much work. In the end, I enjoyed the story, but it needs work. I am torn on reading book 2. On the one hand, I want to read more about Max and his brother, but on the other hand, I am not sure I can handle any more Jenna... or the editing.
I award this book 2 Platypires.
