About the Author
Rachel Gibson began her fiction career at age sixteen, when she ran her car into the side of a hill, retrieved the bumper, and drove to a parking lot, where she strategically scattered the car's broken glass all about. She told her parents she'd been the victim of a hit-and-run and they believed her. She's been making up stories ever since, although she gets paid better for them nowadays.

When I first read the blurb I thought it sounded similar to another of her books that I have read, it turned out that I was right because there definitely were quite a few similarities, however this didn't affect my enjoyment of this book in any way.
Georgeanne was an interesting character - I felt sad when reading about her school troubles and I loved her southern charm. I loved how much she talked and I could almost picture her babbling on in front of this masculine hockey player who really wasn't much of a listener. The connection between her and John was electric, they were complete opposites and I think that is what made them so interesting together.
My first impression of John was that he was arrogant and rude but there were hints at some kind of traumatic past which, when revealed, made me look at his behaviour in a new light. The sexual scenes between John and Georgeanne were quite full on but I felt that it was appropriate and didn't detract from the story.
Lexie was a brilliant character and reminded me so much of my own daughter, she was extremely cute and I loved how she wrapped her father around her little finger. The pet shop incident was one of my favourite Lexie moments, it really got me giggling.
It may have been quite obvious where the storyline was heading but I enjoyed the journey nonetheless, there were times of sadness, laughter and sometimes anger, there were even a few `awwwww' moments particularly towards the end - I wasn't expecting such a romantic finish!
This was a fantastic read, another hit from Rachel Gibson.
Love the story
Georgie, nossa heroína da vez, conquistou meu coração na primeira linha do livro e quem ler o prólogo vai entender porque eu estou falando isso. Georgie, amorosa, solidária e corajosa, enfrenta tantos obstáculos e conquista tantas vitórias, dando uma volta no seu destino que parecia já traçado, transformando a adversidade e os prognósticos negativos em sucesso profissional e pessoal.
A trama trata, com coragem, realismo e leveza, de alguns temas bastantes significativos. Não há excesso de drama mas as emoções se fazem presentes em varios momentos.
É uma trama que aborda a vida cotidiana de pessoas comuns que se apaixonam, se decepcionam, enfrentam os desafios, sofrem, conquistam o sucesso, às vezes fracassam.
Para contrabalançar os momentos mais emocionantes, temos Lexie e John em interações que deixam qualquer um com um sorriso no rosto.
Um livro que mistura emoção e humor com um casal sexy para quem aprecia o gênero romance contemporâneo. Super recomendo.
