Confession One: I was a self-confessed chatterbox.
Words were my best friend.
They loved me almost as much as I loved my pajamas and unwashed hair.
Confession Two: I hated outside people.
I was happiest sitting on my sofa, my favorite show in the background,
and my laptop open while I worked.
Being my own boss was freaking awesome.
So why the heck had I accepted this new teaching job on campus?
Going back to the sunny state was the last thing I wanted to do.
It was only meant to be for one day—one talk.
But life had a funny way at throwing you for a loop.
Confession Three: I was the best secret keeper.
It was ironic considering I never stopped talking.
But I’d do anything for my best friend.
Confession Four: I’d never met anyone like him.
He was different, but not in the way that everyone else viewed him.
He made my heart stutter and my breath catch.
But worst of all, he made my words disappear.
*** 3 Star Review ***
I am conflicted with my thoughts on this book. I can't seem to wrap my head around how I feel. I am not sure how to put everything into words, but I am going to try.
Overall, this book was good and entertaining. It wasn't as funny as the first book in this series, but still entertaining. It was sweet. It was a quick, easy read.
Where I am getting conflicted is JJ. I enjoyed the introduction of him in the previous book. However, I don't remember the author giving his age in the first one. I actually thought he was in high school, not a twenty-two year old college student. So, that alone threw me off.
The main thing is the relationship with JJ and Ella. Now, I am not saying that it can't happen, because it can. However, the way JJ is written, I find it very unrealistic that a twenty-six year old woman would fall in love with him. His disability gives him more of a child mentality, even though he has a couple of areas where he is more adult. For some reason, I was really bothered by it and found it unrealistic.
I will admit, there were parts of JJ's personality that complimented Ella's personality. I am just not a firm believer that those few things can equal love, considering the child part of his personality. Others who have read it have seemed to love it all. So, maybe it's just me?
I can also admit that finding love in the most unlikely places and people is possible. With that being said, I can say that this is a really cute, often entertaining, romance.
