Simple, sweet, predictable and goes down easy...
Reviewed in the United States on October 4, 2020
This was a simple plot without tension or twists. It seemed like the perfect solution to Summer....to marry the annoying Lincoln Wilson to get early access to her trust fund, then wait a respectable amount of time before divorcing. Summer wasn’t an easy person for me to gravitate to. She’s very careful and shy and makes safe choices after long deliberation. She’s dull. She comes across as immature especially with her never-ending belligerence towards Lincoln when he’s being cordial and protective of her...(because she believes herself in love with his brother, Carter). I realize she’s on guard with him as he’s a tease. Still, it was overdone and puerile. She acted like a High Schooler rather than a 31 y/o adult. I loved Lincoln’s bad boy, magnetic personality. He was the main draw (for me). He’s a tease, but also sincere. I was hoping the author would grow his character and work it. Instead she diminished his character and weakened him. It was disappointing. The idea of Lincoln and Summer being a couple was ludicrous. I didn’t believe it nor did I connect to them. What he ever saw in her, I’ll never know. This was a forgettable, simple story with no excitement. It was lackluster, predictable and boring at times with immature dialogue. However unimaginative this plot was, the author conveyed and executed it well.
