I was expecting a bit of difficulty, have such a short book follow six characters. It was surprisingly all woven together quite simply, which made it feel seamless and easily followed.
The characters were all likable, the men all sweet and a little awkward, with the women cast in the more standoffish roles. Though none of the females came across as bitter, just a little wounded. Their backgrounds weren't dug into, though there was mention about Penn, Lexi and Ellen's pasts, so I missed it that there wasn't more about Sarah, Tom or Mike. I would have liked to know just a bit more about them, since the pasts that were brought up played directly into character development and their views on love, and more specifically why they were opposed to it.
I found each story sweet, though there for awhile I was worried Mile was a little creepy. His secret admirer ploys definitely came across with a stalker vibe, and had I been in Sarah's shoes, I would have been scared stiff instead of flattered.
And I would have liked for Tom to be a little more open and forceful if necessary with the blonde bimbo who was always trying to hang on him. But I suppose being who he was, awkward mostly, he wasn't the type of guy to overtly crush anyone, though that did cause him to hurt Lexi's feelings.
And I just found Penn and Ellen completely and totally sweet. No major flaws, just heart-meltingly adorable.
The book does end rather abruptly. My kindle said I still had 30 mins left of the book, so I was disappointed when I turned the page and that was it... But this is a great Valentine's Day, anniversary or "I just met the man of my dreams" day read.
