"'I want this to work. Let’s do this,' I whisper. 'Let’s give this a try.' 'Yeah?' he asks. I nod. 'Yeah.' 'Are you sure?' I can’t help a little giggle as I shake my head. 'No,' I say. 'I’m not sure.'" Repeat x85% of the book and that's basically it.
Emily is the worst! Whiny and insecure, her big dream in life is to please her parents and be an accountant, but he's madly in love with her because of her ~amazing huge heart~ even though I never saw how he got that impression. She's a total wet blanket from start to finish, crying every time Adam can't magically read her mind when she tells him the opposite of what she actually wants so she can see if he really "gets" her. Every few pages she decides she finally wants to try, then something dramatic immediately happens that sends her running again.
Feels like they couldn't settle on which trope they were going for, either. Rockstar? Sorta. Accidental marriage? Yep. Jealous ex? Check. Best friend's brother? Sure, why not. Throw in a surprise pregnancy and that's where I just couldn't go on. I really tried.
Adam could do better.
